NDA prevents me disclosing more. Any negotiable currency accepted, not just used bills like some 'manufacturers'. I am only an agent, not the designer of the camera, so I can only answer simple media-friendly questions.
Ha! You slipped up!
Didn't think we'd notice huh?!
12.1V at 801mA means your piece of crap draws 9.621 WattsOurs
only consumes 9.6 Watts!
You have to get up pretty early in the morning to watch us come down with the last shower!
As for the rest of your specs, we will soon have Algorithms that can produce any spec the customer wants!
Our Programmer Mr Singh is already up to page 33 of "GGI for Dummies" thanks to the different time zones in India.
I'd prefer it with a walnut finish to match a classic jaguar... and a bit of modernity thrown in with cappacino (blimped of course) maker to keep the seat warmers happy on set... and what about a revolving turret with a full set of digi-primes to boot?
Er, you don't use Digi-Primes with one of these cameras, that's the whole point: It takes standard film lenses.
However, the revolving turret sounds like a good idea. I wonder why nobody else has thought of that...
The only problem with the cappucino maker is that it tends to increase the current consumption somewhat, and there is sometimes a problem with fogging of the lenses.
We are looking at a walnut version, also maple and larch for handheld operation.
