Yet another great innovation from Japan’s Superheadz. The digital camera shoots in a fashionable “toy” style with a few filters built in in both still and video formats, but the neat thing is the power system. It is rechargeable similar to an emergency radio with a hand crank system as seen above.

Pocket Digital Camera SQ30mm + Wide Angle/Macro Lens Mod
If you keep up with the Money Makin Mexicano, you would have read about my new camera I bought in Japan. This camera shoots like a Super 8, but is all digital and ridiculously portable.
When I first bought it, I immediately had the plan to mod the lens. After some internet research, I found a cheap yet effective option. USB Fever offers a lot of far out little gadgets for all things tech related.
The lens attaches magnetically via a metal circle adhered to the body of the camera. The magnet is very strong and there is little fear in losing/dropping the lens. The design of the lens is compact, but also packs a surprise macro lens option that is available when you remove the wide angle segment.
As far as I know, I am the first to do this with the Poke Digi or Digital Harinezumi.
Video and photos coming soon.
Poke Digi Carrying Case
Circleface and myself decided to make a run to the flea market today. I was looking for a couple of things and found some things I wasn’t looking for.
If you keep up with my blog, you might have read about the new video camera I bought in Tokyo last week. It digitally shoots as if it were a Super 8, so I had to have one. I have been getting into leathersmithing lately and wanted a neat little carrying case for said camera. Found it!
I made some alterations to it this afternoon by adding a latching system in order to keep it closed. Though there is one more step I need to finish, this is the end result with the Poke Digi basking in the Texas sun.
Pocket Digital Camera SQ30mm
My new camera I am extremely excited about.
I am sure most of you know about the Digital Harinezumi by now. If you don’t, Japanese camera company, Superheadz, designed the digital camera to shoot as if it were a Super 8. The effect is pretty beautiful and gives the instant vintage feel.
Initially the Digital Harinezumi was import only which lead to high prices and scarce stocking. Urban Outfitters solved that problem by stocking it online for those in the states. Now I am not trying to say it is right or wrong to shop at Urban, but once they get their hands on things it is safe to say “on to the next one”.
This is the next one. I bought this in 学園大学 yesterday at a great little boutique camera shop called Monogram. The Poke Digi shoots both photo and video in the same Super 8 fashion as the above mentioned for a hundred dollars less. The camera is stocked with a Micro SD slot + micro USB for charging & computer connection.
