    Interesting camera poster

    Something I saw which I thought was interesting; while I don't know if I would order one, it was fun to try and guess which camera each is. Yes, I know the bottom 2 rows are digital cameras.

    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Interesting, but some questionable omissions and inclusions. And what's with the weird F-1?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I'm disappointed by the fact that the F1 is taller than the P67 next to it.

    I actually think it would be a more interesting poster if they put them in order of relative size, so the Kodak would look 15x bigger than the Minox spy camera. Even the RZ doesn't look that much bigger than the "Lomography Action Sampler".

    But that is not an ME- it's an ME-F.

    What I find sad is that the most recent film camera is a Holga.

    Yea interesting, but odd poster, but the scale is really annoying, designing it to a set scale wouldnt have been that hard as all the info is out there on the web. Also there are two argus C3s while some other cameras were left out.

    I also saw the F-1, the pentaprism is not that tiny! lol Also I didnt think the iphone or the gopro should have been on the list as their main purpose in design is a phone and a video camera, while all others on the list were still image only.

    There is someone here on apug that actually has great images of cameras with a grid behind them to judge scale. I forget who exactly, but the images are really nice and useful. The book Camera by Todd Gustavson also has lots of nicely laid out images of a multitude of cameras for anyone into it, I bought the hardcover version of it awhile ago, and I think the paper back is very affordable, even more so used.

    Also, this would be a fun poster for people with lots of cameras, if you can just make the poster customizable, have people input their cameras, and make a dartboard from it! Throw a dart and you can pick a camera you want for the day!
