    Awesome! Looks like it was taken with a fisheye lens.

  2. Karen Too says:

    Are you sure that’s water in that bottle, Matt? Cool picture.

  3. Jeff says:

    Yea..Karen…they all say it’s just soda……

  4. Jason Eppink says:

    It’s curved because the camera has a CMOS chip (rather than the more expensive and better-quality CCD chip). The CMOS uses a rolling shutter, which reads information one line at a time, so if the camera or object is in motion, it can become distorted.

    Even weirder results happen when you take video of fast-moving objects, like this airplane propeller.

    Accidental or not, it’s a really cool pic.

    this happens with my cell camera too(especially when it’s in my pocket) but mostly black pics show up… yours is cooler.
