World's First working see-through Camera!

KOCC member Jon Legge has made a break through- a working pinhole transparent camera. Created by wrapping 'Safelight' sticky tape round a 35mm Rank Mamiya camera (a recent KOCC acquisition) as a former, cutting the sticky tape 'shell' off and fitting a pinhole. Because the red tape is designed for black and white darkroom use, the camera, while see-through, is safe for the B/W paper neg. Here are images of the camera, and a negative and positive image; the slight fogging is due to an ill fitting lid rather than any problem with the tape itself.

Big Pixels

Ok I happened to be flicking through the web and came across this monster!.  

A digital camera being mentioned in this the KOCC blog I hear you halide-ites shout, yes I know I know! but I thought it was worth a mention as its hooooooooge

A digital panoramic camera with no less than 160 million pixels (huge files averaging around the 800 mb mark)

To give you an idea of its size ...............

There are large zip files as examples should you wish to download and check the quality of the panoramic beast
