As we’ve done for the past couple of years, rather than try our hand at comedy and post something tricky on April Fools, we instead round up all the best photography April Fools’ jokes we can find and post them all in one place.
Buckle up, enjoy the ride, and try to imagine a world where these ideas were actually real. Read more…
From the looks of a recent rumor over on Canon Rumors, we might soon see a Canon branded smartphone. While there’s no information on what cell phone manufacturer they’re working with, it’s safe to say with Canon entering the market, this device may become the smartphone camera to beat.
What is that, you say? Look at the calendar? Oh… Read more…
April Fools’ Day: the beautiful (or painful) day of the year on which the Internet is teeming with fabricated stories designed to fool and humor. We used to participate in the jokes and cover the silliness, but last year we started doing a single roundup post instead to keep you up to speed on April Fools’ Day humor in the world of photography.
April Fools’ Day 2012 has come and gone. Even though we didn’t publish any bogus stories this year, here’s a quick roundup of other photo-related sites that did. The screenshot above shows Kodak’s homepage yesterday, which advertised a new kitten printing machine. Interestingly enough, there was a serious news ticker just below it that discussed the company’s bankruptcy status.
When a fake camera technology is unveiled, it’s normally called a “concept”. When it’s published on April 1st, however, it’s called an April Fool’s Joke (e.g. last Friday’s Canon iPad monitor). The RE-35 is another fun idea that would be absolutely awesome if it actually existed — it’s a 35mm canister that transforms any 35mm film camera into a digital one using a flexible sensor. Simply load the canister into the camera as you would with film, shoot your photos, and download them by connecting to the canister via USB.
Sure this might be an April Fool’s joke, but it’s also a pretty interesting concept demo. Perhaps this is a glimpse of how we might be operating cameras in the future.

Photographer Chris Marquardt claims to have used groundbreaking research to create a mind-boggling transparent camera that’s capable of ISO 1/500, shutter speeds of 1/100000, and terapixel photos the equivalent of 3000 Canon 5D Mark IIs.
is may be one of the most elaborate photography-related April Fools’ Day jokes we’ve seen. How do we know it’s a hoax (besides the obvious)? The camera will be released on April 1st, 2011 [see comments].
