Forgotten Invention: The Revolver Camera

30 Jan

“Revolver Camera (New York, 1938). Colt 38 carrying a small camera that automatically takes a picture when you pull the trigger. At the left: six pictures taken by the camera.” [source]

This is quite possibly the coolest camera ever.
Although I have to wonder, where does one load the film?

FYI, this is off topic but Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a really entertaining movie.  It’s worth the extra bucks to see it in 3D since it was actually meant to be seen that way — mind you, this is coming from someone who usually hates 3D movies since the glasses never sit right on top of my own frames.  This time around however, there was a lot more depth in visual effects (it doesn’t look like Paper Mario) and the 3D is apparent throughout the entire movie (and not just a small segment like in Harry Potter).

Overall, I kind of felt like the movie’s too short since I want to see a bit more character development but you know what, if that means sacrificing all the crazy gory fights and blood spewing decapitations then forget it; this movie’s awesome for what it is.  It was never meant to win any Oscars or Academy Awards for being a thought provoking film; characters accept their fate, they deal with their problems and move on, end of story.  Honestly, I wouldn’t be opposed to a sequel if they’d expand on the character-team dynamics a bit more.

Oh and be sure to check out the concept art for the witches because they are fantastic!!  Go! Go! Go!
