Camera Tossing - Next Big Thing ?

OR - extreme sports for light weights ...

Times Magazine - Sunday last, 14 January

It appears a new 'art' form is in danger of unravelling before our very cameras !

With a lead paragraph suggesting this is an alternative use for the new digital camera Santa brought ...

Quote;

"Stand in the street at night, set the shutter to open for around 1 second, and then toss your camera high into the air. You may never use your camera again, of course, but hey - at least you'll be participating in the most fashionable craze to hit digital photography for some time"

EndQuote !

I just hope anyone trying this is using a very old, unwanted camera or are bl***y good at catching ... at night !?!

Anyone for cricket ... ?

Anyway if anyone is interested in viewing some successful attempts (not sure how many cameras were wasted !) check out this site ...

Good luck if you give it a go ... but you won't catch me participating unless Jill lends me her compact !

Lol!

I must confess to having taken a pic with my cheap little compact, but even then it was held firmly with the wrist strap so it just spun around with no danger of being dropped...



(So, I guess that makes me a to$$er then - just thought I'd add that before anyone else did!)

Catdaddy had a strap-on

Like the colours.

Now now gents!

The greens and reds were flashing lights on my modem and stuff. The blue light was the torch on my cam phone through a blue plastic slide case...

And yes, I know I'll probabyl get flamed for posting the pic up, and I agree, it bears about as much resemblance to 'art' as half a cow in formaldehyde, but now nobody else needs to bother risking their cameras, do they?

I did attempt to get something from my really old kodak. trouble was it took so long to react to the shutter button it was guess work when to throw it

Don't really want to break it but I probably will anyway. Want to dismantle it and see if I can get the IR filter off the sensor and have a IR capable camera - even if it is only 2MP and slooowww.

Well ... it certainly blows Warspites theory out the water !

Although you might be saved by the strap ... so to speak !
