The Invisible Camera: Your Mind Will Be Blown
Chris Marquardt has developed a really mind blowing new camera called The Invisible Camera. Using ground breaking technology developed by the Max-Planck Institute in Germany, Chris has designed a camera that can properly expose an image even when the film is exposed to ambient light. The special film uses a technique called “directional desensitization” which prevents the emulsion from capturing light; the only light registered is from the very small projection created by the tiny pin hole. What’s even more mind blowing is this technique might allow for images to be captured at ISO 1/500th or 15 stops lower than ISO 100! Chris estimates that this increase in resolution would be equivalent to about 3,000 5D Mark II cameras which I can’t even imagine. Hopefully some of our more technical readers can explain this to me since I have a feeling it’s going on sale a week from this Friday and The Invisible Camera has offered a demo model to Fstoppers.
Update: Chris has uploaded a podcast about his invisible camera. Unfortunately I still don’t think he addresses the questions needed to debunk this as a hoax. Listen to his interview HERE and decide for yourself.
