Wonder why it looks like a kettle?
Wonder if that backpack is necessary?
Wonder how it differs from a superzoom bridge cam?

I like this game! :biggrin: thanks for the link Herman - couldn't tell much from the 42 image slide show, but innovation is good! :2thumbs:

A bit more context here.

I suppose there will come a point where pixel density is so high, all you need is digital zoom.

It seems to be a prototype of the rumored Canon APS-C sensored "all-in-one" bridgecam.

Olympus tried similar concept with 35mm film cameras during the 90s if some might remember. Those were the IS series -- IS-1, IS-2, IS-3, IS-200 etc. I liked the IS-3 the most and it had a cracking sharp lens (yes, the boring high standards of Olympus) but I don't know if these concepts will work in present times. Only if it is waterproof to a certain depth some UW photographers might find it useful.

Can't say I like the design though -- seems to have been dropped from an UFO by aliens having eyes at the ends of their antennae.

Acc to me: camera takes video from which one can extract their photo.
Like: filming with for example a GH1 equiped with ultra wide lens and extracting a lower resolution picture from it.
