The camera’s body, which is modelled after a Nikon D3, is mostly made of cardboard held together with tape, with a painted scavenged plastic bucket serving as the lens. But Tyler went above and beyond the call of duty this year. Inside the lens sits his actual Nikon DSLR, which is triggered by the costume’s shutter button. The large flash over his head contains a working wireless strobe, lighting up a room with every shot, while the LCD display from an old Dell laptop is mounted to the back of the camera, providing instant image previews of every photo he takes. I’m not sure where you stick the giant SD card, but the built-in tripod sure is handy. [Tyler Card via PopPhoto]
