First time I ever heard of a flat bed camera...
Maybe there will be a drum field camera soon...?

It's the Grateful Dead model. You can tell be the bears.

Looks like it would be a bear of a camera to lug around. Grin.

Aw, heck, just fit it with a Goerz Ursa Dagor, then grin and bear it. :D

Yes EuGene brilliant. At least the bears are on the outside of the camera and not within the bellows like these Ursa blackflies in Maine.

Don't bother with it. I bought one. The images all come out with fuzzy edges.

How long before Shen Hao comes out with their version?

Sorry guys, I was just overcome with an overpowering urge to puntificate. :p

Nathan, I used to live in York Village, and I remember those big old flies . . . thought they were buzzards. I was afraid if more than 3 got to me at once, they could carry me off. :eek:

Michael, maybe I should pass this along to the guys down in the Lounge who are fighting over sharp vs soft images. Maybe they will bury the hatchet and learn to enjoy a warm fuzzy. :D

I've got one of those and I called it Teddy.

But you can't use it in winter, when the bears hibernate inside the camera.

I've just realised - this must be the latest Kodiak Bear camera :rolleyes:
