Strange Camera?

I came across this very strange and funny camera on the internet - triple lenses in triangle formation with waist level viewfinder. Can seasoned Pentaxians throw some light on it - photo attached.

Is it some type of 3D camera like the Realist stereo cameras? Obviously it's a lot bigger.

Where did you see this? First thought that comes to mind is something custom built or one of those "hoax" images.

But, I don't have extensive knowledge about all cameras, so it may be something in production.

Does look like a total Photoshop fabrication: compare the hands to the lenses involved.


I'd presume the idea behind it is a stereo TLR. You'd only need one viewing lens for that. (but it might work better if the taking lenses were somewhere in the middle of a film path. )

Bingo, RML. Itmay be a Russian Sputnik stereo 6x6 TLR, though the pictures I see of the Sputnik aren't exactly like this...

AHA - it is a Chinese 3D World?

Aha, indeed, looks like someone must just have big hands. I guess they've been making these a while and putting various focusing hoods and glass on there.
