Pinhole Camera Shoots You Like a Gun
by Mark R
Now you know what James Bond sees. You know, at the opening of the Bond films when he shoots that shooter guy?
Welcome to the age of the pinhole camera, a camera that looks like a gun. You’re not going to be able to see the viewfinder in this picture here, but even if you were to see it from that sexy shooter’s point-of-view, you wouldn’t see it.
In other words, this camera gun has no viewfinder. You might wonder what good that is. Designer Franziska Dierschkeare says that the pinhole camera isn’t about a photographer setting up the perfect shot, but rather the shutterbug act of shooting of many pics at a given time.
I have to admit, the pinhole camera does sound like a lot of fun. In fact, I recommend having a few around at the next big party you have, and let some shooters go at it for your Flickr page. Of course, the fact that the camera looks like a gun could disturb the guests.
So far, this is a concept for now, and there is no rumor of an estimated price. Since this is still underdevelopment, I have a suggestion. These photos have to be stored digitally, right? Why not design it so the user can insert a USB thumb drive into the gun just like loading ammo clip into a real gun. Now that would be cool.
