|Team of Experts Take Boring Landscape Picture With World’s Most Expensive Digital Camera - January 15th 2004|
A Team of experts from the United States have taken a series of boring landscape photographs using the most expensive digital camera ever built, a device they designed and built two of for the incredible price of $425million each.
The pictures, featuring a series of red rocks lying in some red sand and are widely to considered to be quite boring amongst most photographers and photograph critics.
“To be honest, most amateurs with basic 35mm cameras produce far better results.” English Photographer Keith Wilson informed us, “The results might not be focused, the object might be slightly out of frame, but the picture would be worthwhile.”

NASA, the organisation responsible for taking the photographs has insisted that have not over indulged and that their photograph is far from boring. It showed that the Spirit probe had successfully retained its orientation with the lander allowing it a straightforward exit onto the surface.
NASA also disputed claims that the $810million spent on the twin probes was a waste of money. They insisted that the technology was paving way for future improvements for technology available to ordinary man. But many Americans resent the money being invested in the space program believing it should be channelled into more beneficial schemes such as tax reduction:
“Helping ordinary man?” Californian resident Chuck Hankman exclaimed, “Who are they kidding. Sure, the ability to scout a remote location for evidence for something would have been handy for Bush and his Weapons of Mass Destruction quest in 2003 but I don’t see much other use for a load of long distance remote control space probes.
“Maybe NASA think that one day we’ll all want to send our own space probe to Mars or Venus or wherever. That’s complete rubbish. It’s pointless investing in the space program and the Mars Rovers are proof of this. By the time the technology becomes of any use to us they’ll already be doing package holidays to Pluto.”
