Sony Alpha DSLR Sliced Down the Middle

Camera innards are often shown in cross section diagrams, but here’s a Sony Alpha camera and lens that were actually sliced cleanly down the middle (we’re guessing a lightsaber was involved). The build quality of the lens definitely looks cheaper than the sliced Leica lenses we shared last week (as it should). Brownie points if you can identify both the camera model and the lens.

     Wow. Very cool.

    Stange choice of aperture when shooting that, after going through all that trouble they lose half of it to too much d.o.f! 

  • Alythe87

    or too little d.o.f rather

     I’m guessing it’s the Alpha A100 with the kit 18-70mm.

    Not true, most midrange and high-end cameras still use pentaprism viewfinders.  Only low-end DSLRs use pentamirrors.

    What about Hasselblad lenses? Any cutaway views?
