Camera Porn Wednesday

This weeks camera is:

Minolta RD-3000

The Minolta RD-3000 was a digital SLR camera for the Minolta V-lenses which were originally designed for the Minolta Vectis S-100 and Minolta Vectis S-1 SLRs for APS-films (and a with an adapter could mount popular Minolta Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum-mount lenses). For an exposure the light that enters the lenses is split through two half mirrored prisms to illuminate two separate CCD-sensors. That way the pixels of both 1,5-mega-pixel-CCDs are added to resulting 2,7-mega-pixel-images.
