Now This Is Hardcore Photography

Now This Is Hardcore Photography

You might think you are into photography. You probably have a camera — maybe two. You go to cons and you take photos of cosplayers . But you are not hardcore. Not like this guy.

At the Nipponbashi Street Festa earlier this spring in Osaka, one photographer caught people’s attention with his gear set-up. It’s like a photographer’s exoskeleton. YouTube user Osaka Kankou Channel compared it to some kind of Mobile Gundam suit.

His set up was so impressive that people who attended the festival stopped him for photos:

Photography blogs like PetaPixel and ISO 1200 have been impressed with his set-up (some of which you can see below). As PetaPixel notes, his gear included multiple DSLRs, external camera flashes, several action cameras, a smartphone, and an external hard drive, among much more.

Dude’s camera suit is as impressive as some of the cosplay on display. No idea if his photos are any good, though.

  • Whelp. I asked last week what everybody thought would be the latest trend or news from Japan. I don’t think anybody could have thought up this.

    • I wouldn’t really call it news, and it certainly isn’t a trend.
      I’d call it Brian doing something for his paycheck.

  • I didn’t read the headline as “Hardcore Photography”. I’ll let you fill in the blanks.

  • I want to see the look on this guys face when I tell him that he has the wrong lens for the job.

  • A setup that elaborate and no links to his work to see if he’s even any good.

    • Dude! Just look at the definition on that sushi roll. He’s obviously some sort of wizard.

  • I’m more impressed by the fact that someone’s cosplaying Princess/Prince Sapphire. I’d have thought it too old an anime for people to want to cosplay.
