    I must take some photos at an alien meeting and they will shoot me
    with laser guns if the quality is too bad and non-holographic.

    So where can I buy a holo-camera?

    You can use a perfectly ordinary camera to capture holograms, if you
    want, it's just the lighting that's a bit of a pig.

  3. Simple.
    My Sony TRV60 (70 in the US?) is holographic, and when tested, gave me
    results (~2MP) that should keep your associates friendly.

  5. The still picture mode uses a laser device to help it find focus either in
    the dark or against a featureless object. There's just the statutory laser
    notice in the manual, but buried in the glossary of the Sony Style Technical
    Specifications 9, 2004 publication it states :-
    "Hologram AF (Auto-Focus)" Hologram AF an application of laser holograms, is
    a new AF optical system that enables still images shooting in dark places.
    Having gentler radiation than conventional high-brightness LED's or lamps,
    the system satisfies Laser Class 1 specification and thus maintains higher
    safety for human eyes.

    So seeing the laser label on my latest toy, I gave it a trial, and yes it
    does get focus against dark featureless subjects, and the projected pattern
    is quite different to the AF assist beam from my Canon EOS10 or 550EX flash
    guns. The Sony pattern is a flickering open square grid of perhaps 64 short
    lines set at 45 degrees, rather than the Canon AF assist pattern of parallel
