Turn to film to snap that celebrity - Film could get round Roman Abramovich's 'paparazzi shield'.
Earlier this week it was reported that Roman Abramovich has come up with a new way to stop his friends and family getting photographed by the paparazzi.
The novel idea which may be copied by other celebrities, is to install a 'paparazzi shield' on his yacht. The system, which is made up of infrared lasers, detects electronic recording sensors and directs a focused beam of light directly towards it, effectively preventing the camera from recording an image. But as the expensive device detects cameras by looking for their sensors surely this means all paparazzi could get around this by switching back to 35mm film?
What do you think? Is 35mm the way to get around this? Do you think a 'paparazzi shield' should be used?
ePHOTOzine are looking into this and will bring more information when we have it.
