i can’t believe we let this slip past us when it was announced last November. but i guess this kind of occasional slippage happens. personally, i love tilt-shift photography but none of my cameras have this function. so what i did to get the effect? photoshop! but then that’s pretty time consuming, and sometime not as realistically unreal. then again, i wouldn’t want to splurge on real tilt-shift equipment that could cost me an arm and a leg but lucky for me, there’s a much affordable (way affordable) alternative – the NeinGrenze 5000T Digital Camera. tilt-shift is its second nature and to top it off, it can also perform post-processing effects like Tunnet and Lomo type texture.
the 5000T is a decent point-and-shoot compact digital camera that has everything you come to expect from camera of such category: it has flash, zoom (8x digital), a 2.4-inch LCD display, tripod mount, exposure control, white balance and it even records video with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels at 15 frames per second. it is equipped with a 5.0-megapixels sensor with 16-MB of internal memory, while a SD card slot allows storage expansion up to 8-GB. power comes from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and download of data is either via USB connection or if SD card is used, through any compatible card reader. simple as that. the NeinGrenze 5000T Digital Camera is available via Photojojo and retails for $149 a pop.
