:thumbsup: extra points for realism. i like the flash tex. you drew that?

08-18-2004, 10:36 AM
thanks m8
i tried mapping the flash and displacing it but in the end i modelled it even the grooves on the outer glass, i think this looks better than before.

the realism is great, love the textures

08-18-2004, 05:20 PM
Really nice work _dd , i started doin a camera a while back and gave when i got to textureing it. Your materials look really good. how did u make the shiny metal around the lens piece?

08-18-2004, 07:11 PM
great render!

08-18-2004, 07:33 PM
:eek: omg that is awesome! perfect modelling, lighting and texturing! great work :applause:

08-18-2004, 07:46 PM
thanks guys
the metal around the lens is poly modelled and more to the point its a metal texture/shader with a spectral effect to give it the cd effect
with the text just dumped on top

Flawless Dave strikes again :) Its truly inspiring this piece, clean and perfect, every aspect of it! Cheers!

08-18-2004, 07:53 PM
spot on as usuall m8. a couple of minor points i could point out, but i wont. i just be picking holes for the sake of it

(just cos i got exactly the same camera here infront of me. now who was the damn foo that reckomended it to me? ;) )

08-18-2004, 08:44 PM
this is just great!

have you made a making of.. a WIP or something like that, would love to see your progress

08-18-2004, 09:04 PM
show them ur desk montage m8, that rocks :)

08-18-2004, 09:12 PM
Good modeling and render, but one thing wrong for me, the metal texture it,s too plastic, give more reflexion to get better result.

Congrats, good work. :thumbsup:

08-19-2004, 08:02 AM
thanks guys for the nice replies
the metal is matt really not reflective, it has a small amount of noise on it.
but there is something about the metal. it changes looks every time i change the lights
but overall im happy with this look and feel, i can live with it.

strat the montage is on my site ;

thanks again guys

damn fine model and render that is DD, top work.

my only suggestion would be to brighten the subject a little more, its a tad dark. otherwise excellent.

08-19-2004, 10:01 AM
im looking at my camera now. the metal seems spot on. it does have a slight metallic sprey kinda feel to it, like half way between metal plastic, or even spreyed plastic

08-19-2004, 12:02 PM
Nice!.. it's good to see some product visualization here for a change. Couple of tiny things..
The flash is a bit overly bright and obvious, could be a bit less white and show more variation in the reflection. Also the cyan cast on the top (prob. from the HDRI reflection) could be desaturated a bit. Really love the finger grip:thumbsup:, perfect.
As for the camera... well I had the old P1 and just threw it in the bin and bought a canon EOS D instead... and a nikon coolpix for snaps and textures. Much happier now.:D

08-19-2004, 12:08 PM
nice model..very whell done....the modeling..the materials....I know the real model too and is pretty much the it :applause:

08-19-2004, 05:48 PM
Hey DD!

Relaly fantastic to see the final. One of your best IMO.

Can you please post a shaded/wire? I know the crazy amount of detail you love putting in your work!


08-19-2004, 06:00 PM
hi there m8 and thanks again to all that have replied
here is the wire view not at detailed and messy to boot ,[but it got the job done]
i will post a shaded in a bit once my other render is done

08-19-2004, 07:47 PM
Nice one Dave, you really made it look real! Great attention to details.


08-20-2004, 01:31 PM

beautiful job dave.,
nice clean modeling a beautiful texturing. One thing. Are the edges supposed to not be perfectly round like on the model ? What is there to say. Keep it up :)

09-03-2004, 01:24 PM
