Camera: Minolta Dimage 7i

3dMax 5 for the modeling (all polymodeled), Brazil for the rendering, and Photoshop for the textures.

have had this camera for a while now, and started modeling it a few months ago but dropped it after a day or so due to other projects. picked it back up a few days ago and rendered it out

Great work

Maybe to little light in the front
  11 November 2003
totally agree. It's very photo real, but the front is a bit too shady. I think it adds to the photoreal aspect, because it looks like a photograph of a "bad" lighted subject. So maybe it's on purpose.
See you.

Very nice
a friend has this camera and it really looks accurate.
my crit would concern the black rubber handle: imo the bump map is a bit overdone (holes are too wide and deep), may just need scaling down and lowering strenght... it kinda gives it a sponge look and not rubber.
i also agree on the front needing to be a bit more light
anyway good job
It's all fake and yet we believe

Yes, I did intend for the light to be a bit harsh (yes still with soft shadows) to try an simulate a fluorescent light. The lense does look a bit dark though, I'll try and fix that for the other renders. I have a few more renders planned out, I'll post them here when I finish them.

Here is another render:

Wow! The second one is great! looks really realistic (the only thing that distubrs is the lense again )
  11 November 2003
Yes, really nice and realistic! I like those very detailed renderings.
  11 November 2003
Holy crap dude! Nice rendering job on that second one! WOW!
  11 November 2003
Photoreal man, both renders look phenomenal. I don't mind the harsh lighting, but I agree about the rubber grib, the bump seems a little overdone on it.

Oh and on the lens, I think it looks fine. Take a look at camera lens in shadow and it looks just like that.
If someone offers a penny for your thoughts, and you give them your two cents, where does the other penny go?

Ouch! Beautiful modelling, and well, nice idea lighting it from the top...
maybe really just slanting the light a tad might help the bulgy lens to catch some specs...
But man, if it's being picky!
