70-Pound Camera Takes Incredible Panoramic Shots


Chef Darren Samuelson knows his way around a kitchen and a camera — a 70-pound beast of a camera to be exact, which took him approximately six months to build and a good chunk of change. Instead of using normal film, Samuelson uses X-ray sheets that are about three feet wide — which makes sense considering this monstrosity stands five feet tall and six feet long. Funnily enough, Manhattan police questioned the artist when he was photographing along the Hudson River, mistaking his homemade device for a weapon. The accordion-like body of the contraption is attractively old timey. The invention requires a true sensitivity when it comes to measuring and timing things. Find out how the camera actually works in the video past the break.
