    Latest development in flat bed field cameras from Japan

    Just came across the following... a new flatbed from Japan?

    A new camera?

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

    Looks like it would be a bear of a camera to lug around. Grin.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
