Indiana university historian Patrick Feaster recently discovered a record featuring the voice of Emile Berliner — inventor of the phonograph. Created in 1889, the record is likely the oldest in the world. What’s interesting, however, is how Feaster managed to obtain it: through a photograph. That’s right, Feaster discovered an image of the disc preserved in an old 1890 German magazine from the same year and then was able to recreate it by scanning and analyzing the photo.
Remember the 100 pixelated camera illustrations by Billy Brown we featured a little while back? Well, you can now decorate your wall with them by ordering them as vinyl decals. For $36 you can choose either 30 small decals or 10 large ones over on Scribble on Everything.
Suzieautomatic’s original Canon-style dial sticker was a bit hit in the blogosphere, but it left many non-Canonites wondering whether they could buy one to match their preferred brand.
But suzieatomatic didn’t neglect Nikonians and Leicans for long.
Now, in addition to Canon vinyl decals, the seller is offering Nikon and Leica versions for laptops, also for $15.
The Etsy dealer also released stickers that are customized for some select camera models. So far, as a spectacular ode to camera geekdom, they’ve got stickers for the the Nikon D90, Canon 5D Mark II, and most recently, for the Canon EOS 40D.
And if you got your hands on the iPad this past weekend, suzieatomatic also released an appropriately sized Canon decal.
For whatever brand camp you fall into, your swag can be really specific to what you’re repping.
