science tumbled: The Eye as Camera

science tumbled: The Eye as Camera

This reminds me of that scene in Transmetropolitan:  ”Build a sophisticated camera capable of full 3-D input and peripheral pickup, using only water and jelly….”


When I started getting into photography, I was amazed at how my eyes could see just fine, but when I tried to take a picture, I’d discover that the camera couldn’t. Even when cranking up the ISO and opening the aperture, the shutter speeds weren’t hand-holdable. Just how light-sensitive is the eye anyway?
