This Giant Camera Takes Amazing Photos

When photographer Darren Samuelson set up to take photos of Manhattan with his massive six foot long view camera that weighs over 70 pounds, authorities were alerted and the police had to be convinced that he wasn't pointing a weapon at the city!

This amazing device, which Ansel Adams will likely come back from the dead just to get his hands on, was created to use x-ray film three feet wide, and it takes some truly awesome panoramic photos. Hit the link to see a short video of the big daddy view camera in action! --image by John B. Carnett

ps-here's a link to the artist's website that I should have included with the article in the first place. Sorry Darren!

Wow, it's just been confirmed:
"And we don't post about such things here, this is about fun and interesting, nothing serious or political."

Can we hold you to that? lol

Maybe the authorities were less afraid of his camera and more afraid of what appeared to be his black evening gown.

Point of contention: Photographers make amazing photos. Saying a camera takes amazing photos is like saying a hammer builds really nice houses.

The credit needs to go to Darren, not the camera. See this:

But yeah, that is one hell of a camera!
