Can you guess the camera?
So a friend of mine who lives in Reykjavik just shot and stitched together a lovely little series of scenes highlighting the Winter Wonderland that it's become.
I guessed which camera he shot it with and was totally off a few times (he has access to a few). That started me thinking about all the technical detail and subtle nuance I think/pretend to detect in an image when I know what it was shot with, and how that is probably colored by already knowing. So how about a little blind test - can you guess the camera?
Obviously this is graded and finessed, making it harder to suss out base characteristics, but then so is all published imagery these days.
(PS: it would be unsportsmanlike to research the rest of his Vimeo for clues - there is nothing to "win" here but faith in your own eyes).
