Tim Barribeau at the Pop Photo reports: "OpenReflex is a 3D printable SLR, completely open-source, with a mirror viewfinder, and a fixed 1/60s exposure. Created by French Design student Leo Marius, putting together an OpenReflex requires access to a a 3D printer that can print ABS, a CNC cutting tool, some miscellaneous parts and accessories, around 15 hours to print the whole thing, and then an hour to assemble it."
Photo taken in August of 1943. The location is Northern Australia, and it depicts a ring tailed possum examining a camera belonging to the Australian Department of information. Shot by young Department photographer Harold George Dick with a Graflex Speed Graphic camera, who was killed in an airplane crash in December 1943 while returning from an assignment at the Pacific war theater, more specifically, the Battle of Arawe. A couple of his war images can be found here and here.
Dave Kai Piper is famous for his award winning model & portrait work and also known to work with only 'with natural light or an Orbis Ring Flash'. So, here's his wonderful X-Pro1 gallery, but at least the dozen or so images I've checked out so far are all shot with a Nikon D700., according to their EXIF. The disparity is compounded by the fact that each file name contains the words 'fuji-Xpro1'.
Since the same EXIF information is repeated in photo after photo, all shot on the same day, with a 85mm lens, at ISO 200 and 1/200 sec speed, it makes this probably a case of EXIF manipulation gone wrong, but it still begs the question: Why?
Update: Dave Piper sent us this message:
"Hello Sir, I can clear up this problem - All of the photos in the gallery had been placed onto a template in photoshop ( all of the photographs in my portfolio have been laid out this way
Ok, this is not really new, but it IS freaking hilarious. For the record, if our breath was that acidic, out teeth would have decayed long before the nano crystal coating:
"How do I clean the camera lens?
The best way to clean a lens is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of Lens Cleaning solution. Do not use anything containing abrasives or solvents, only use Lens Cleaning Solution. First we recommend taking a small blower brush to blow off or brush away loose dust or debris. . . . read more
