I found out later though.
Anyone know here?
Here's a view of the reverse side:
Not my pictures BTW
The fuck is the point of that?
Blimp to neutralize sound.. used often on movie sets
Bah. Dont give it away so soon!
i had no fucking clue. i was thinking some awesomely jerryrigged camera. Like that telephoto lens someone's dad made out of a pair of busted Olympus binoculars, and a fucking pringles tube.
i was gonna to that guy. now i'm not as impressed.
im still confused as fuck
edit: I get it now. Makes the camera sound silent.
or like that guy who made a pinhole camera out of an old van....
I be honest, i did not know what that was until now
I always see people use that thing all the time during movie/commercial shoots around here. Last time me and my cousin were at the beach doing a photo shoot and right next to us they were filming a movie scene from Monk and there was a photog with that big bulky box taking pictures, we thought it was some kind of old large format camera
Wow, I wouldn't have guess that. I learned something!
Interesting. I guess that makes sense. I hate taking pics in some settings when its really quiet, and all you hear is "CLACK"
I don't see why we even have mechanical shutters anymore. We need to change the camera to just rapidly turn on and off the sensor. Look at all the other crazy engineered shit in our cameras and sensors, why can't they figure out how to just turn the thing on and off real quickly?
Almost all DSLR's "turn the sensor on and off real quickly" to expose the frame. The mechanical part is for the mirror to flap up so the sensor gets to see what you're seeing. It doesn't expose the sensor like it would film.
Think about it... P&S cameras expose electronically. But they don't view through the lens like a (D)SLR, they project the view onto an LCD on the back. The mirror has to be there. The mirror has to get out of the way to let the sensor see what you see and take the pic.
the first thing that came to mind was "to quiet the camera shutter sound". Looks like I was right.
Makes me think of that anecdote someone posted on here about a year ago, how he was shooting a high-school play or some such, and happened to be up in the aisle in the audience. The guy that he was near had gotten annoyed, and asked him to turn off the shutter sound on his camera
I was going to guess a hidden spy camera in a suitcase thing, but then the more I thought about it, the big white zoom lens kinda gives it away.
mr miyagi's brother?
Blimps are also often used by beta testers of new cameras for Canon/Nikon. They let them shoot under real-world conditions without anyone spying on what they're using.
id rather use a rangefinder
These are quieter, and they're usually used in higher speed situations, where speed/versatility are important... rangefinder wouldn't really be appropriate.
yeah true. you're pretty limited especially with lenses with a rangefinder
Dude looks like Mr. Miahgi
Because CMOS sensors cannot cycle that quickly. They actually turn on, shutter opens, shutter closes, and then turn off. CCD's can respond faster than CMOS (hence the higher sync speed on CCD SLR cameras) but you get more noise (CCD is what Nikon USED to employ...)
really? cuz I remember watching the Australian Open and when the players came to one side of the court all you could hear was the clicking of the shutter.
Is it used just during the serve?
