This may have been pointed out already, I realize this is an old post but you seemed to have overlooked a great one. The Polaroid SX-70 was designed by Charles Eames.
missed my f3. here in Singapore it is so hard to find film and it is near to impossible to find somewhere to develop.
My brother's Nikon F3 camera was the DSLR camera I ever used. Great video
I miss Colani in this video. I think that any modern(D)SLR Design goes back to Luigi Colanis Design starting with the Canon T90 and the new EOS-Series. I still own and use a Canon EOS 650. Great Design. Great channel Ted. Many thanks for all your work.
Another noticeable example of industrial designer applied in the camera industry is the Polaroid SX70 for which Edwin Land hired famous american designer Henry Dreyfuss. (Industrial designer myself) Great channel Ted!
Giugiaro designed all my favourite things in my life, my Nikon SLRs, and my beautiful Alfa Romeo 159
Ha, this is a great video! I have always loved the Nikon F3 design, and even though I never told anyone this, I always compared it's beauty to the design of the classic Ferrari car designs. Now I know why! Thank you for sharing!
Nice of you to remember to associate cameras with famous designers. However, I think you could have done more in terms of model ilustration. Walter Teague will forever be remembered for his designs for Kodak, especially the magnificent Kodak Bantam Special, that's an iconic camera. As for Hasselblad, weird choice, as everybody knows that the Hassy wasn't an original design, but closely based on a German camera, the Primaflex ( I think). Couldn't agree more about the influence of Giugiaro at Nikon, he even designed the first compact from Nikon, the L35 AF. You forgot, perhaps the biggest influence in camera design, FA Porsche and the Contax line of cameras. The Contax T is a master piece of design, as is the RTS, with styling cues that would stick to the brand right to the end.
Can't belive you didn't name Henry Dreyfuss and his participation in the Polaroid SX70
Hi Ted. Great to see some broader aspects of knowledge incorporated in the video. One of my claims to fame, apart from owning a modern Nikon, is that I own a Same [pronounced Sam-eh] Titan tractor which has a prominent plate "Ital Design Giugiaro" on the side. It is not surprising that he designed this design masterpiece in modern tractors, as it belonged to the holding company at the time of Same-Lamborghini-Hurlimann. Yes, its also available in white as a Lamborghini, a division which was spun off from the car company but was the base from which the car company grew.
From WikipediaLamborghini's wealth allowed him to cultivate a childhood interest in cars, owning a number of luxury automobiles, including Alfa Romeos, Lancias, Maseratis, and a Mercedes-Benz. He purchased his first Ferrari, a 250GT, in 1958, and went on to own several more. Lamborghini was fond of the Ferraris, but considered them too noisy and rough to be proper road cars, likening them to repurposed track cars. When Lamborghini discovered that the clutch on his Ferrari was broken, and was actually the same clutch that he used on his tractors, Lamborghini went to Ferrari and asked for a better replacement. Ferrari responded, saying that he was just a tractor maker, and could not know anything about sports cars. Lamborghini decided to pursue an automobile manufacturing venture with the goal of bringing to life his vision of a perfect grand tourer.
Wish they would use better designer's nowadays, but who would they choose?
this guy hates leica
Have you done any videos on your favorite film types, and specific characteristics or reasons why its your favorite? I'd be curious to see that.
Another great show Ted, I all ways enjoy watching.
What a great portion of informations. Thanks a lot!
