Digital Camera (dslr)

Hi guys,

I started doing this model for a job, and though it was canceled I found out that it was a great modeling practice.
The camera is supposed to be one of Fujifilm“s latest releases, though I certainly took some "poetic licenses" and it is far from being accurate.

I found it really hard to do the shapes of the body since it is a single piece and would appreciate your comments/suggestions before I continue.

Cheers.

Hey man,

Could you post a few wireframes? What model camera are you basing this off of?

Hey man,

Try to get those edge loops evened out so every thing flows nicely.

How far do you want to push this thing? Your model overall looks too round, and is missing a lot of the corners and bevels from the real product. It might help to try to push some edge loops together around the corners to help sharpen and flatten things up.

Overall the model looks decent but what strikes me most at the moment is the pentaprism / flash cover. It looks a bit uneven and lumpy at the moment, it could do with some refining.

I“d wish it was great, but I can certainly live with "decent". Especially since I was at a complete loss when I started modeling the camera, so in spite of the flows it can have I am pretty pleased with the results.

Thanks for your suggestions, I found them really useful. I was wondering, how do you guys deal with a model when you fail to understand the object in reality?

I get as much reference as I can lay my hands on.
