PLEASE NOTE: THIS DEVICE IS NOT PERFECT!! THIS DEVICE CAN BE A DOWNRIGHT PAIN IN THE ASS. IF LOOKING FOR PERFECTION DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA! THESE ARE UPCYCLED DIGITAL CAMERAS FROM 2003 AND NOT SOMETHING NEW I DEVELOPED. THEY BEHAVE LIKE TECH FROM 2003 AND ARE SLOW TO TAKE AND SAVE PHOTOS. WIRING INTO THE SENSOR ALSO INCREASES BATTERY CONSUMPTION. RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES (INCLUDED) ARE TRULY IMPERATIVE. A POWER SUPPLY IS SUPPLIED FOR EXTENDED STUDIO USE. COSMETIC CONDITION MAY VARY. PLEASE SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR WARRANTY INFORMATION BEFORE YOU PURCHASE. PLEASE READ THIS BLOG POST FOR MORE ON THE GLORY & THE LIMITS OF THIS CAMERA HERE.
IT’S BACK! Well a couple of them at least. It’s the 2021 run of BPMC PAUP EYE modified digital cameras. I’m sure there is an app to simulate this by now but ya know what, there is something special about these little 3.1 mp glitch cameras. There is a certain charm about taking pics on this goofy little thing versus the predictability of snapping pics on your phone. You snap a pic and there is this excitement of “gee, what the hell is this going to look like?” I first built one of these back in 2014 and only recently said goodbye to it when my car was stolen for the fourth and final time. It’s shocking how much use I got out of it over the years. If you take good care of them they should last you a while. The results are somewhat unpredictable however you learn how to work with that unpredictability and take exquisitely strange photos or videos. So let’s talk about what this camera can do. Welp, it can TAKE DELIGHTFULLY TWEAKED 3.1mp PHOTOGRAPHS and store them on the supplied memory card. It can also CREATE EXTREMELY LO-RES VIDEO FILES THAT KICK ASS. Finally, it can FUNCTION AS A STUDIO CAMERA AND OUTPUT VIDEO VIA COMPOSITE VIDEO. Guess what? All three create different visual results when used in combination with the 3 magnet based glitch switches on the front of the camera under the sensor. Each switch offers you varying levels of corruption from subtle to fully corrupted.
This will be the final run of the PAUP EYE in this form. I do have more glitch cameras down the pipelines so stay tuned.
