    Hey...

    ever wanted that elusive camera realsed from apple?

    The iPod - 5G HDD, 32 Megs of RAM, Firewire, 10 hours of battery, decent software and an interface to die for! So basicly you have the basis of everything.

    Want a DVideo or DStill camera? Get Sony or Kodak to make one that slips over the iPod. The software can take care of the rest. You want moving video WITH sound, select that with the provided software. or moving video WITHOUT sound and so on and so on. Then the possibilities are endless. Screens, speakers, keyboards etc etc.

    That's clearly a Photoshop job. There is no way that thing is real.

    Actually, it looks more like a vector program, I'd bet on Illustrator or Freehand. The level of detail is quite impressive.

    Speaking of mock ups......

    Did anyone see the mock ups the ATTIK did for MacWorld magazine a few months ago?? well 5 or so months ago!! They were very innovative!! Especially the Powerbook, with a separate screen and a wireless keyboard that is flexible and can be rolled up!!!

    Truely superb!!!:)

    You're a designer, right?

    Hey Coeus,

    you can't hide design skills like that from me! Which agency?

    It's for photoshop pros like you that they do the 'bake-off' every MacWorld event. I mean, the rendering times of the Velocity Engine must have kept you from moving to Windows for your mission-critical stuff time and time again.

    Keep up the good work

    Happy Easter all

    This whole thread is a revised version of what I posted a week ago - although it was in the 20GB iPod thread:

    Re: Naw

    iPhoto is OS X only. OS X does not lend support to oldschool serial ports, of which there are none on recent Macs. Well, there is one, and that is the internal modem port. If you add a Stealth Serial Port to that internal modem jack you get an oldschool serial port and evern a port driver under OS X---but iTunes would have to specifically support the use of foreign port drivers, which it does not.

    So the answer is, sadly, no. I have a QuickTake 200 and it was my only digicam for years until I grabbed a Canon PowerShot S30 this past Christmas. Fine old camera, the QT. I think Arn just got a QT 100.

    There is a keyboard that can be rolled up and it's waterproof, but it's not wireless:(

    WHY DO YOU GUYS ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SO ****ING NEGATIVE.

    You don't think that MAYBE, just ONCE, a rumour image could be an exclusive and REAL prototype. How could you seriously doubt the nature of this image, it is SO perfect it could NOT have been forged.

    Cause

    I have been on Macrumors.com everyday for the last 3 years, and here is what I seem to understand....

    Real = Good
    Fake = Crap

    That my son is crap, it looks like it was done on a PeeCee.

    Dunepilot,
    hahaha. Nope, no design expert at all plus that image was created on a windows machine! LOL...
    I want to convert, Apple is starting to make an impresion on me! my parents wallet aint so sure though.

    madamimadamtimallen,
    uh, i did forge it. the whole idea just popped into my head when i was reading an article about someone wanting a digi cam from apple.


    i hope Apple does something like this with the iPod. its just more of an incentive to pay 900 bucks (AUS) to get one. otherwise its not going to sell very well in australia because its expensive. even with Apples reputation of good hardware/high price, it doesnt actually perswad (spelling?) many people in australia. mainly because australians are most the likely the most computer/technological illiterate race (other than those poor people with 3rd world countries).

    You sure that the image isn't a Fisher Price model in stead of an Apple?

    I take photos for my high school paper every once in awhile and I really enjoy using their digital camera. I'd like to get one for myself so I can practice & have fun taking photos, but I don't really like the options available.

    My main choice right now is from Canon (the s110) but it's not perfect for me. I feel that Apple could make a nice camera that would have the best set of features and would work perfectly with my mac.

    They did it with the iPod & iTunes and I hope they consider doing it with the iCam & iPhoto!

    Until then I will just keep waiting... and waiting... and waiting...
