Group Description

It's about Superheadz/Powershovel's brilliant concept camera - a digital camera (that takes stills & movies) specifically designed to emulate a wonderful analogue feel.
It is quite posibly the world's first digital 'toycamera' that was actually designed to be that way.
Share your images, movies and thoughts/ideas about this camera here!

Taking amazingly analogue-like still images and movies, the Digital Harinezumi (Porcupineor Hedgehog) is Superheadz/Powershovel's latest release and yes, as the name suggests, it's digital, but with a wonderful film-like feel. To quote their site:

“This camera is not designed for taking ‘precise’ and ‘proper’ pictures. We have designed it to take pictures differently. If you would like to take precise pictures, this camera is not for you. Please visit the camera shops to look at cameras from other brands.”

Thanks to Nic Nichols of Four Corners Dark for the following details:

Q. Why is it called the Digital Harinezumi?
A. At first we were planning to digitalize the Harinezumi Camera from the first generation of our 110 film ‘Animal Camera’ analog camera series, that’s how we came up with its name. Its shape also resembles that of a 110 film, don’t you think?

Q. Black spots appear when I try to take pictures of the sun, is this normal?
A. There is a chance of black spots appearing when shooting objects like the sun. This is resulted from the design of the camera and therefore is not a sign of defect. To prevent this, try not to shoot towards the sun. Shooting the sun can actually damage the camera.

Q. Red and blue hues appear during recording, is this normal?
A. We have designed this camera in order to achieve this effect. This is not a defect. This camera is not designed for precise capturing.

Q. The LCD monitor does not show the preview when I am trying to take a picture. Is this normal?
A. We have purposely made it this way so that you would not know exactly what you are taking until you pressed the shutter. Please enjoy the anticipation of not knowing what kind of pictures you will get!

Q. It is out of focus. I always get blurred pictures.
A. We have designed this camera in order to achieve this effect. This is not a defect. This camera is not designed for precise capturing.

Q. Is there any internal memory in this camera?
A. No. Please purchase a MicroSD card (Up to 2GB recommended) separately.

Q. What kind of battery does it use?
A. The CR2. Rechargeable batteries are available in the market. Please visit electronic appliance stores or big camera shops for more details.

Q. How many pictures can I take?
A. About 1600 in the Hi-resolution mode on a 2GB card. For video recording, it is about 2 hours.
