| p.1 #1 · "if pictures are square, why are lenses round?" |
Surfing the comedy channel the other night I came across and older Steven Wright stand up.. he delivers a very monotone matter of fact comedic act with such questions as "If you drove your car the speed of light, and turned on your head lights, would they work??"
Anyway, one of his lines really caught my attention.."if pictures are square, why are camera lenses round?"
An interesting observation! And one that I don't have a precise answer. Why aren't camera lenses square?? Of course, you would need a different focus and perhaps aperture mechanism, not to mention mounts and such..
But it will be entertaining to hear views from all of you! Could a lens be square??
