The purchase of a 65mm Schneider Super Angulon prompted Steve Smith, who has access to a CNC drill/router used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards, to build a do-it-yourself 6x12 cm panorama camera.
Damián Ortega's "Olympus, 2009," an artwork which consists of every piece of an old Olympus camera suspended in a real-life exploded view, prompts a short meditation by Sebastian Smee on boston.com.
And finally, TOP reader Clay Harmon got a new Nikon D7000—one of the first—but didn't find the bits and pieces in the box that he expected to find. (What's the book he tosses out at the beginning? Wasn't there supposed to be a new edition of that?)

Featured Comment by Paul W. Luscher: "Re Damien Ortega's piece: Atrocity! Butchery! Murder! Dissecting an Olympus OM like that (and a perfectly good one too, I'll bet). Isn't there a Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Cameras?"
Mike replies: Don't worry—the artist makes a big deal about including every single piece in his creations. To me, that says a good tech could always put the camera back together again. I'm just sayin'.
