Canon EOS-0: All the Bells and Whistles You Never Wanted to See on a DSLR

The Canon EOS-0 is what you get at the Apocalypse when all the major camera, software, and operating system companies get together to unleash unspeakable evil into the world. It’s a camera with a little bit of everything: support for every major lens mount, a drive for various kinds of discs, Windows Vista as the operating system (shudder), Photoshop available on the giant widescreen LCD, etc… Pretty much the only thing you won’t find on this camera is a toaster.

Here’s a closer look at the camera:

Photographer Emin Kuliyev Photoshopped this funky “frankencamera” together back in 2007.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Itai N!

    Where’s the unsuck button?

  • Dave

    What, no swiveling screen?

  • Rebekkah Owens

    Lose the Vista. For the love of all that is right in this world, please Canon, lost the Vista.

    A PS3? Want.

  • Joe Dyndale

    This begs the question: Where’s the kitchen sink?

    Where is the coolingspray for when your feeling hot shooting the swedish girl-football team for the next playboy?

  • Bergur

    Lol. I love the “inspiration” button. “Yes, please, give me some inspiration, camera”.

    On a more serious matter, I’d actually like a real camera to have an .mp3 player.Here are my arguments: Doesn’t take up a lot of space, today’s music players are tiny and the screen is already there. The camera could easily take two memory cards and one of them could be used for music files. It’s just a thought.

    I know what you’re going to say: Get a mp3 player and a camera – that way both of them probably turn out better. And you’re probably right. If an idea like this was to be incorporated into any camera, it would probably be some entry-level camera like the D3000…

    Hey, no cloud-based storage system?

    It’s got Vista because it’s so old that Win7 hadn’t been released when this parody first was.

    Hmm, old one. Must be before the release of the Nikon D3 as ISO 12800 seemed out of reach there ;)

  • Paul fp

    Seems half canon half Nixon!

    The Kodak DCS-315 actually had a working game of Pong buried in the menus; quite playable in fact.
