Now a camera that doesn't take pictures

After yesterday's camera lens that can see behind itself, we have a camera that doesn't take pictures. You trigger the shutter and a printed not of what the camera thinks it is seeing is produced, but no actual image See:

It's not an April fools joke as far as I can see...

Re: Now a camera that doesn't take pictures

Wow, that's really taking the art out of photography.

I wonder what would happen if you combined this camera with yesterday's super fisheye lens? You'd probably just get a note saying, "It's behind you!" Great for photographing pantomimes!

Re: Now a camera that doesn't take pictures

Some artist did this years ago, with a card describing what he would have done, had he done it, in place of the actual picture.

There's very little new under the sun these days

I think I'll produce one that only stores images that are good. That way I can get some use out of my 32Mbyte XD cards

I suppose you will need to replace the till roll and ink pretty often
