I know the designers went all out during the consumer P&S era, from the funky Mirai, to the Samurai

What comes to mind?

Chinon Genesis. You held it like a movie camera, not like a camera.

I always thought this grip approach was a good idea.

Some of the Polaroids are pretty darn retro...Cool Cam, the pink & gray one especially.

For SLRs, some of the Chinons and Minoltas and the T80 Canon.

Hi,

How about the range of Olympus ZLR's and the LT-1 and LT Zoom?

Regards, David

Vielen, vielen Dank.

EDIT; the Konica Z-Up 80 Super Zoom also comes to mind. I hope someone else can photograph one as I have no idea where mine is...

Samsung Ecx1 was almost for sure one of the more odd looking big compacts that I've seen. Said to have been designed by some Porsche engineer and it also have a superb zoomlens as far as optical performance go, designed by Schneider.
There is a thread about it here on RFF. http://rangefinderforum.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=95651

Dear Garageboy,

I documented a lot of fishing trips with this bad boy.

There were times when my brother and I were float tubing on lakes and we used to throw the camera back and forth to each other. It floats and it never failed.

The pictures aren't great by any stretch, but they allow for a lot of memories to come back so it definitely did it's job.

I would have to throw my Vivitar TW35 in the ring. It's big and bulky for a P+S, with a lens-changing lever that has a very authoritative "click" when you change lenses.
