here theres this show called camera cafe that is about a camera installed in a coffe machine in an office

when theres a guy 1 m from camera and other at 20 m the camera keeps both on focus, tell me a single holliwood movie where they make this, always the focus problem

but how the hell do they do it? its imposible according to laws of optics keep focused objects so close and so far at the same time

do they use different cameras and digitilize it or what?

This type of camera (the name escapes me at the moment) was invented by an Australian wildlife photographer about 15 years ago. So not only does Australia beat Spain, but also this Hollywoodlandplacethingpersonobject.

Now, smile for the birdie!

I totally agree, there is far more filth in Spanish movies than there is American movies. You guys rock, is it true that in the Spanish Big Brother it only took 8 hours before the first couple got it on?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

In the States you get it on, while back here in the Old Country we 'have it off'. I wonder who has the best of the deal? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

What you are referring to is called "depth of field" in photography. It is related to the size of the aperture in relation to the focal length of the lens in question. A smaller aperture causes greater depth of feild, while a larger aperture(or f-stop) will give less depth of field. A camera small enough to be mounted in a coffee machine will have both a small aperture and a short focal length, yeilding great depth of field and wide angle of view, but low magnification. In photography, (or cinematography) it is not always desirable to have the entire frame in sharp focus. Choices like that are made for artisic, not technical reasons.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Actually I'm Scottish but "get it on" way the most polite way I could phrase the question. Personally I get it on, have it off, get down and jump back, good gawd!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

But another household work, the highly propagandized Me 109G, was obsolete when it was built and was aerodynamically the most inefficient fighter of its time. It was a hopeless collection of lumps, bumps, stiff controls, and placed its pilot in a cramped, squarish cockpit with poor visibility.

I believe this same kind of lens was used in Lord of the Rings, when they did some of their 'forced-perspective shots'. Like where Ian McKellen would be right up next to the camera, and Elijah Wood would be quite a bit furthur back, creating the illusion that Wood was only 3'6" tall. Yet both remained in focus.

It's not proprietary to Spain.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
