The Wonderful World Of Cameras!

with one comment

Cameras come in all shapes and sizes, makes and models, prices and practicalities. We here at Gadget Freaks are always on the lookout for new cameras and photography gadgets. These days cameras are everywhere, even on cell phones but not all cameras are as obvious as that.

Considered the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the camera world, Hasselblad has recently released its H3D SLR Camera System. They claim it to be ‘the World’s first 48 mm full-frame DSLR camera system’. This is not a camera for the enthusiast but purely for professionals only, and the top pros at that. With a price tag of US$ 40,000+ this will be one that we’ll be using in the studio only here at Gadget Freaks. See more…..

Although many companies have shut down their photographic film and camera production or even gone into bankruptcy, there may in fact be few niche areas of the market where film may live on for a time yet. Enter the 120 Tri-Lens Stereo Camera! This is the latest in crazy camera technology from China. Only available in film format as yet but I guess it won’t be long until a digital version is on the market! See more….

Now going from the sublime to the ridiculous, or was that the other way around? Take this digital camera that looks like a zippo-style lighter we saw on Youtube. According to the website it can shoot up to 14 fps(frame per second) and stores up to 100 images. Hmmm….We wonder if the new Get Smart movie will create a new spy gadget craze like the TV show did in the 60’s?

  Now here’s something to get all you photographers out there either excited or scratching your heads going by the reaction of our photographers here at Gadgetfreaks. The gorilla pod is like an ‘All Terrain Tripod’ that comes in two models, SLR type and P&S ( point and shoot). An awesome gadget for those photo trips where the lay of the land is not suitable for conventional tripod designs.

  The unit itself looks totally flexible and can even be attached to a tree or a rock. Great for wildlife photography and brilliant for traveling.

  I want one!!
