Bizarre Nikon DSLR Seen on Torchwood

Check out this fictional Nikon DSLR spotted in the British science fiction TV show Torchwood. It looks strangely familiar.

Apparently in some universes, Nikon DSLRs are compatible with Canon flashes.

    It’s a 1D with Nikon logo, some kind of text, a canon 70-200 2.8L, a canon speedlite (on a pc sync adapter thats in the hotshoe for no apparent reason)

    But then again, it IS science fiction ;)

    Haven’t y’all been following all the rumor boards? Both companies are merging in order to end the pointless bickering online and destroy Sony with one stroke. They’re still debating between Ninon and Cakon though.

    A very battered and bruised Canon lens by the look of it. :/

    Don’t forget the ND Filter.

    Sod the camera! If she wants to be taken seriously, she needs to sort her grip out on that lens!

    in the real world everything about this photo is wrong, unless you’re talking about the string theory then everything may be correct. :)

  • Joe

    wonder if the port under the flash is an optical trigger so that when other flashes go off this one will too. Probably just an extra with a camera. Finger off the shutter….

    I’m pretty sure you could mount a Canon flash on a Nikon body through that PC adapter if you set the flash to manual.  The Canon lens, on the other hand, would be a bit more problematic.

    Canon 1D Body with a different Nikon logo.

    Should be named Nonon. Because it sounds delicious.

  • Tgc1963

    There must be some sort of copyright law being broken here, it’s clearly a Canon body, lens and flash combo.

    I just paìd $22.85 for an ìPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Canon EOS Rebel Camera that we got for $38.78 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $625 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.còm

    Nonon? It should be called Cakeon – doesn’t make much sense though.

  • Anonymous

    I think it makes perfect sense Bergur.

    mother of god! it´s a Frankenscamera! you wonder about the flash mounted on the pc sync adapter thats in the hotshoe for no apparent reason, but i actually have a school mate that did that once.

  • Pixlink

    It looks like a resin cast dummy body. Movie prophouses have loads of them. You wouldn’t hand a $4000 camera/lens set up to a movie extra.

  • Andy Walton

    The Cakeon is a lie.

  • lloyd -

    yeah, that would explain why the flash has a cable running into it. external trigger

    had it not been such a tight crop, you would have seen Pentax on the camera strap :P

    That camera is as silly as the show itself.

    Nikon and Canon together, that’s not Sci-fi, it is fantasy

  • Tamtakos222

    hahaha… nice photoshop work !!!

  • http://darrencalhoun.com heyDarren

    so… I wonder how many other people scrolled back up to see if there really was a Pentax strap. lol

    I believe it’s a real body. It’s not easy to bodge the metal fittings and the finish is too good.

    The flash is likely real, too. The PC adapter block is linked via a PC cord and I believe that’s to allow the tech operator to remotely trigger the flash.  The actress just holds the camera with a finger near the trigger.

    I think the lens is indeed a mug.  The liner lip is a giveaway, as is the lack of a hood bayonet.  The front lens element is a plastic sheet back-painted black.

    I am not sure why they picked a version of the mug with the tripod bracket. I think the bracket is real, incidentally. Perhaps they added it to make her look like a numpty.

  • Mikke

    The camera is fake. All nikons have popup flashes and in the picture, the camera body looks like a Canon 5D with no popup flash. Look at the lens. It has paint on the underside. Totally fake,

  • eddie

    not all Nikon cameras have pop up flashes. The professional grade models do not. But yeah, this thing is totally fake. Even the shutter button looks like it should be part of a toy.
