So what does our newest product have to do with the wonder of a goat’s eyesight? If you missed the previous clues we have given you, check them out, maybe they help with this mysterious guessing game!

If you’d like to meet our new character before anyone else in the world, please sign up to our special list and we will send you the news as soon as it drops

    Or a whole new camera equipped with a tilt-shift lens? We'll see...

    So, we've got "quality character" which hints at better build quality vs the standard plastic lens/bodies. A mention of 1958 in Russia. And then the latest talks about goats having wide vision. So, it's going to be a super wide goat made in 1958 out of metal and will take photos using custom film that you feed into the goat camera using it's mouth. And will cost $800.

    I got nothin.

    A medium format version of the Sprocket Rocket, shooting 6x9 images. With the resulting very large negative perhaps a 58mm lens would yield the super wide angle for medium format semi pano image...and please make it with an optional 6x4.5 mask. C'mon you guys, you know you want to make that camera for us! With lug strap attachments please! :D

    The Start was a camera that began production in '58 in Moscow. At the time the only system camera in the Soviet Union. Refereed to as the Russian Exactica. Ran with a Helios 44, 58mm. - camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Start_(SLR)

    another kickstarter to collect money for something not ready for some years. But your eyes go superwide just seeing the price and gapped qualuty

    How about a tilt-shift, metal, Sprocket-Rocket, 120 size, with real apertures, shutter, and rangefinder?

    I'd be happy with a tele lens for the LC-A

    A metal goatseye camera (that's a nasty Google mistake waiting to happen...) called Sergei.

    @stratski I see what you did there,..and I'm not going to google ;)

    I guess it might be a stereo lens kit or stereo lens camera

  14. ihave2pillows

    An old cranky camera with a shifty eye?

    well, based on mr goat there as our third clue, if I'm not mistaken, goat got that rectangular pupil with very wide angle... so, shift-y, tilt-y, or some kind of those unique lenses function maybe..?

    @herbert-4 I think they are not able to do so. @alienmeatsack think right, it will be what some value as a quality nozzle Soviet satellite. Better they started selling tanks and developers.

All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
