    I was just wondering the other day.. is there a camera that has a fast enough shutter speed and a high enough f-stop to make it look like it is dark outside in the middle of a bright day? Kinda random but i was wondering if it exists

    Almost any camera with manual exposure can do it assuming you think that underexposure looks like nighttime. Underexpose by 5 stops or so and anything middle gray will be solid black, and anything bright white will be about middle gray.

    With BW film I have stacked a polarizer on a #25 (red), and underexposed just a stop or so (from the correct exposure taking into consideration the 4 or 5 stops the filters are blocking) to get a sort of Hollywood nighttime effect.

    You can achieve that with just about any camera.

    Damn! Just beat me to it, Matt ;)

    I've been practicing my quick draw. Been watching a lot of "Zatoichi: the Blind Swordsman" movies.
