My first glance at the Alpa 12 TC began to induce a slight drool which most likely sprang from the paralyzed dream state I entered as I imagined all of the glorious photos I’d be taking with my travel compact camera. My daze only increased when I discovered that the camera was both 6×9 roll film capable and also has an adjustable digital back. In both film and digital form it happens to be the lightest and smallest camera on the market (above 60MP on the digital side). Designed by the Swiss camera studio Estragon, the camera is “fully integrated into the Alpa platform and all lenses” which range from 23mm to 250mm. The 12 TC also features scale focusing and a manual shutter. My hopes of owning this camera were quickly brushed away when I discovered that in order to purchase all of the necessary accouterments, not to mention all of the desirable accessories (that includes the sharpshooter style ultra badass viewfinder, as well as gorgeous rosewood grip), the Alpa 12 TC can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to $20K. I will keep my daydreams brewing, but if you’d like to allow me to live vicariously through you, check out more of the Alpa here.

    I realize this can be completely unrelated however the UFC is on Television tonight for no cost Versus. It really is not typically the UFC is cost-free so figured if another of the followers like MMA they would not wanna miss out on this.
