There's lots of them. I went into a camera/lens repair shop the other day and saw a stereoscopic camera.

Reminded me of this weirdo, a quadrascopic film camera:

The Fujica G617 certainly is a curiosity - a panoramic camera for medium format film. They also made another version - the GX617, which has interchangeable lenses.

I have one and it is an interesting challenge to shoot with, it definitely requires a conscious effort to get into the panoramic mindset when we are normally shooting with 2:3 or narrower aspect ratios. It's also pretty huge and cumbersome to carry around!

Photographer Josef Koudelka does some stunning work with this beastly camera

Speaking about such variety of cameras, the most important aspect is connected to the main one - the type of it. My favorite one is situated here as the most important one in my life.

It's just a cheap enough Raspberry Pi standard camera, but connected to the cheap NVidia Jetson Nano board (running Linux with powerful graphics card accelerator) it can quickly recognize objects seen by the camera and give their names:



Special!

Remember the Sony Mavica? The floppy drive storage was quite amusing.
