A camera is a device that records/stores images. These images may be still photographs or moving images such as videos or movies. The term camera comes from the camera obscura (Latin for "dark chamber"), an early mechanism for projecting images. The modern camera evolved from the camera obscura.
A chamber or round building

Pogo: The Complete Daily & Sunday Comic Strips, Vol. 1: Through the Wild Blue Wonder (v. 1)
The first volume of the second-most requested strip collection reprint in Fantagraphics' history. Walt Kelly started his career at age 13 in Connecticut as a cartoonist and reporter for the Bridgeport Post. In 1935, he moved to Los Angeles and joined the Walt Disney Studio, where he worked on classic animated films, including Pinocchio, Dumbo, and Fantasia. Rather than take sides in a bitter labor strike, he moved back east in 1941 and began drawing comic books.
It was during this time that Kelly created Pogo Possum. The character first appeared in Animal Comics as a secondary player in the “Albert the Alligator” feature. It didn’t take long until Pogo became the comic’s leading character. After WWII, Kelly became artistic director at the New York Star, where he turned Pogo into a daily strip. By late 1949, Pogo appeared in hundreds of newspapers. Until his death in 1973, Kelly produced a feature that has become widely cherished among casual readers and aficionados alike.
Kelly blended nonsense language, poetry, and political and social satire to make Pogo an essential contribution to American “intellectual” comics. As the strip progressed, it became a hilarious platform for Kelly’s scathing political views in which he skewered national bogeymen like J. Edgar Hoover, Joseph McCarthy, George Wallace, and Richard Nixon. Walt Kelly started when newspaper strips shied away from politics — Pogo was ahead of its time and ahead of later strips (such as Doonesbury and The Boondocks) that tackled political issues. Our first (of 12) volume reprints approximately the first two years of Pogo — dailies and (for the first time) full-color Sundays.
This first volume also introduces such enduring supporting characters as Porkypine, Churchy LaFemme, Beauregard Bugleboy, Seminole Sam, Howland Owl, and many others. And for Christmas, 1949, Kelly started his tradition of regaling his readers with his infamously and gloriously mangled Christmas carols.
Special features in this sumptuous premiere volume, which is produced with the full cooperation of Kelly’s heirs, include a biographical introduction by Kelly biographer Steve Thompson, an extensive section by comics historian R. C. Harvey explaining some of the more obscure current references of the time, a foreword by legendary columnist Jimmy Breslin, and more. 32 pages of full-color and 320 pages of black-and-white comics
My first Polaroid
When I was walking around the flea market on Boxhagener Platz this Sunday, I had a feeling that if I found some old camera, I'd just buy it for the fun of it. And I found an old Polaroid SX-70 Model 2, dated somewhere between 1974 and 1977. It was really beautiful, technically OK and somewhat worn from the outside, but after a little bargaining, I got it for reasonable 30 Euros.
After ordering some film online, I got it just today and really wanted to take a picture now. So the first thing that caught my eye was my MacBook.
Feels somewhat sad. If I hadn't know that I am a geek before, I knew now. Although I can make the fact my excuse that Friedmann, my cat, was somewhere outside at that time and that I was still feeling too ill from a nasty cold to go outside in search for a proper motive...
When I bought the Hasselblad 500C/M about 2 years ago, the owner "threw in" a polaroid back. I didn't really pay attention to it as polaroid film is pretty expensive and just took a few shots with it with the film he also threw in. Recently I bought a couple of expired packs off the Bay and I put one in today... I think I like the result. It's got the depth and the colour I like. Does polaroid film come in high speeds?
