There is a new video camera on the scene that fits in the palm of your hand and makes your videos and still frame pictures as weirdly lo-rez and awesome as the venerable Holga does for film. The Digital Harinezumi 2++ is possibly the coolest toy for making interesting media content that’s come around in a long while. What it lacks in fidelity it more than makes up for in aesthetics. Take a look at some of the videos it produces:
Black & White
It used to be that with digital video cameras and still cameras there was a race to the top in terms of pixel ratio and overall quality. This led to media devices that cost thousands of dollars. It is not surprising that with the change in Independent Music towards more organic and lo-fi sounds that there would be a similar trend in visual media. The Lomography people have pushed that trend in analog photography, and now with the Harinezumi 2++ there is a reasonable counterpart in video. If this trend continues there may be more devices like this being produced.
