Here's a quiz I have been forced to play by my editor today; so everyone else here can suffer from it as well (I know, I have a sick humour):


Name That Camera!

Focal length: fixed, 22mm.
Maximum ISO: 800.
Maximum aperture: f/3.5.
Field of view: 180 degrees.
Resolution: 576 megapixels.



Enjoy the obvious,

-Michael

Hey, Dave! That means one pint of stout on me should you be in London, or a decent Heurige on me should I be in Vienna!

At least someone isn't as "camera"-centric as I was this morning, me fool!
(don't ask what I thought about when it was put to me :wacko: )

I would have guessed 40mm and 150 degrees.

Thanks Michael.

Hehe, ok. But the second round is on me for recommending Dresel. Any news on your cam BTW?

Cheers, Dave

Just an 800 ISO?

I would have thought it'd be at least 3200. Or is that just for cones and not rods?

Oh, and what is the equivalent resolution in lp/mm??? ;)

Maximum aperture: f/3.5.

Hmm, I'll check with Zeiss to get a little speed upgrade there.

Actually, ISO speed isn't defined for the human eye. The range of stops is actually more like f/2 to f/8. The focal length varies, because that's how we focus, by squeezing the lens to shorter focal lengths for close objects.

180 degrees?

This must have something to do with security cameras, like for an ATM.
