Invisible Camera Shoots Terapixel Photos at Fractional ISOs

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.

This 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].

The Most Interesting Photographer in the World

Here’s a funny twist on the popular “most interesting man in the world” beer commercials by Dos Equis — Luc Welch over in the photo.net forums has posted some facts about “the most interesting photographer in the world“:

He’s photographed lions… from the inside
When NASA had to repair the Hubble… they borrowed his lens
He built his first camera when he was five… out of a toaster
His portfolio has been known to stop wars
He photographed a sunset once… it waited for him
His list of clients include Bigfoot, Santa Claus, and those little grey aliens

He is… the most interesting photographer in the world…

I don’t always shoot film, but when I do… I prefer Dos Chromas. Keep shooting, my friends.

If you’ve never seen these commercials before, you can go check them out on YouTube.

Wikipedia also has a list of facts about him:

He can speak French… in Russian.
His personality is so magnetic, he is unable to carry credit cards.
He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it felt.
His charm is so contagious, vaccines have been created for it.
His organ donation card also lists his beard.
The police often question him just because they find him interesting.
He is the only man to ever ace a Rorschach test.
His mother has tattoo that reads ‘Son’
Alien abductors have asked him to probe them.
Bulls flat out refuse to fight him.

Garrett Murray over at Maniacal Rage has a funny project called CS4 Crash Reports. He comes up with the strangest things to send to Adobe when his Photoshop CS4 crashes and asks him to describe the problem that occurred.
