Correction: in the video I mention that this app works with the 3G and 3Gs iPhone… I was wrong… it only works with the 3Gs which is what I have.

The Cuboid Multi-Aspect Ratio Pinhole Camera – Part 2

TheCuboidThe Cuboid is set for release December 1, 2009 so over the next month I will do one article a week focusing on this unique new camera in addition to my regular articles.

The first in this series is on the multi-aspect ratio possibilities of the Cuboid. The attached imageTheCuboidFrameSheet illustrates that with the 7 included masks the Cuboid is capable of an incredible variety of image sizes and also is capable of doing the Overlapping Frame Panoramic Technique I outlined here on Figital Revolution a few months ago- but to a much greater degree of control and creativity.

Viva la Revolution!

The Cuboid Multi-Aspect Ratio Pinhole Camera

Click on the video below to watch a 10-minute overview of the new Cuboid multi-aspect ratio Pinhole Camera.

The Cuboid is in final testing now and is expected to be released around December 1, 2009. This is a very limited production camera- at first, only 3 will be available with an additional 6 cameras around March 2010… each is entirely hand-made by Matt Abelson of Abelson Scope Works. The Cuboid will be available exclusively here on the Figital Revolution E Store / Indian Hill Imageworks, so stay tuned!

NOTE: I will be in NYC for Photo Expo on Friday, October 23, with my Cuboid in hand… so if you see me on the floor and want to chat, just give a shout!

Viva la Revolution-
