CAMERA COLLECTION BY TAIYO ONORATO & NICO KREBS
Swiss duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs are known for their contemporary, cutting edge style in photography, sculpture and installation art. Camera Collection is their ingenious, handcrafted collection of cameras refashioned with far-out, unexpected objects.

I’m going to be honest one of the reasons I’m posting this amazing collection of eclectic cameras created by Swis duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs is so that I can use the coin the word “Armadillo-cam”.

These are really cool, I love the camera made out of a stack of books (above).

Thanks to @WantanItalics for pointing this out to me.

Edinburgh Zoo, a set on Flickr.

I’ve trimmed down the hundreds of photos I took to just these 10. Most were variations on a theme anyway.

I want to crop the chimpanzee picture a little.

I decided to shoot in full manual this time round, I don’t normally do this so I ended up with a lot of under exposed or blurry photos.

I might add some pictures of the Jaguar to this set later, I have some nice ones I’ve not added yet.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Themed DSLR

Pentax parades Evangelionflavored Q10s
EVA-1 Shinji Ikari

 

It’s not often I get talk about both anime and photography, Pentax are releasing an Evangelion themed Q10 DSLR in April, sadly it’s Japan only and they are only making 1,500 of each model so the chances of getting your grubby mitts on one is fairly low. But you can dream.

It’s going to clock in at 59,800 Yen ($660 or a little over £400)  for that that you get a 12.4 megapixel, mirrorless interchangable lens camera which can also shoot video in fill HD.

It’s apparently not just going to come in the above EVA-1 colour palette but will be available in the other EVA models as well.

Clyde Sunset

Clyde Sunset, originally uploaded by Ohmzar.

I just took this, the only lens I have to hand is my 28mm which I still haven’t got a feel for yet.

It’s a little wider than I would have liked there is a housing estate just to the right of this and a street light just to the left…

Amazing Pareidollia – Sink Eye

Found this amazing image, looked at it and thought that is a nice picture of an eye, why have they covered their face in bubbles. Then I realised it’s just a sink draining. Someone in the comments on Reddit stitched it together to make sink eyes! Which is really creepy…

The f/60 Lens Kitchen Timer

Do you like both photography an cooking? Do you like to have items lying about your house that looks like photography kit but isn’t really then maybe you should buy the The f/60 Lens Kitchen Timer at the Photojojo Store! It’s pretty much what it says on the tin, a kitchen timer that presumably goes up to sixty minutes that looks like an SLR lens.

Unlike the SLR Lens Mugs you can get this one doesn’t seem to be shaped like any particular manufacturer’s lens it just looks like a lens. Still quite cool, I’d consider it if  it went to f/120 I think f/60 is a little limiting.

For No Particular Reason Here Is a Llama

Here is a picture of a Llama that I took last year while at Blair Drummond Safari park, it came up as a recommended image by Zemanta for another post I was writing. Here also is a picture of a Tiger I took during the same trip. See I do photography as well as random nerdery!

Fruity :)

I’m not sure if this is make-up or Photoshop but it looks cool either way. This image set entitles Tutti Frutti by Senju-HiMe is whimsical and exhibits a wonderful use of colour.

Film Canister Wedding Invitation

I’m sure I know a fair few people who would love these wedding invites, they are made from re-purposed film cannisters (soon to be a rare comodity?) . These were put together by Trevor and Larissa of ambient studios.

As two passionate photographers we decided to try to turn our mutual obsession with photography into a theme.  Since both Trevor & I enjoy shooting film on the side for personal projects it seemed only natural that we integrate this somehow into our day.  (apart from actually supplying our photographers with film for their cameras of course!)
The result is a collaboration between Trevor & I and an invitation that took an assembly line of 5 to create.  We had to make about 40 after all was said and done and I was lucky enough to have the help of my ladies and a little bit of wine!  (Thanks girls!)  It was tons of fun and completely worth it…
