Wanna see one of the custom cameras that will film Star Wars: Episode VII?

A few hours ago, a tweet went out from Andrew Bikichky regarding “a custom blacked-out Panaflex XL,”that will be used by J.J. Abrams on the next Star Wars films, stating “here’s one of their cameras.” Pretty neat! I have no idea what is custom or special about this camera on a technical level, but the fact it it will film Star Wars: Episode VII makes it special enough for me. The cameras are being nicknamed “Death Star” and “Millenium Falcon.” (Fun Fact: past router names in the Ward household)
