    Yeah, but we would not know where the dead cat was!

    Well, you might. But then you wouldn't know when you found the dead cat.

    I have carefully reviewed the technology of this "photo system" and I think that it is similar to those X-ray sun glasses that you could buy 40 years ago.

    Now I have to imagine a neither dead nor alive (undead?) cat crammed into this tiny glass box... thank you very much I love cats, but I prefer my cameras without any felines in them. It's hard to get all the hair off the film...

    And I do hope, they also make a special ground glass screen that goes with the camera. If it works with film, it should also make an ultra-bright viewing screen.

    I'll definitely register for testing, just to see what happens

    This sucks, I am now going to bookmark this site, and then hope that I remember to come back on April 1st to see what the punch line to this joke is. They have done a great job of setting this joke up, I can't wait to see the big finish.

    What if they really do send out cameras and film and someone properly handles exposes the film in an actual 4X5 camera and sends it back? I think their reaction after processing that would be funnier than their own joke.

    My 7x17" camera is invisible. It says "Invisible Camera Company" right on the name plate.

    I actually had one of these cameras once. I couldn't put it down. Once I did, I couldn't find it.
