Watch Pro Photographers Try to Shoot with a $22 Bunny Camera

image

In a bit of a call back to the classic DigitalRev TV “Pro Tog Cheap Camera Challenge,” YouTuber Jessica Kobeissi enlisted one of her professional photographer friends for a special photo challenge: get the best possible campaign/editorial photos using only a $22 bunny camera. Hilarity ensues…

The victim contestant is Detroit-based film photographer Vuhlandes, the model was Bianca LaCroix, and the camera they were using is this little gem you see here:

You can see it for yourself here, but the specs are… ummmm… nothing to write home about.

In the cons column: it’s only 12MP, you can’t zoom, you can’t change lenses, you can’t adjust exposure, and there’s only ONE microSD card slot. In fact, you can store up to 50 photos on the camera without a card, so you could say this is a zero card slot camera.

In the pros column: there are 28 “funny filters & stickers,” it’s drop resistant, and there are “built-in puzzle games like Tetris and Snake.”

Sadly, Tetris and Snake didn’t play any role in the photography challenge (missed opportunity?) but Vuhlandes and Kobeissi did their best to work within the extreme limitations they were given and capture something that looked somewhat “professional” in just 5 minutes.

Check out the full video up top to see how they did and who “won” this challenge. And if you want to see some similar challenges from yester-year, check out some of the DRTV Pro Tog Cheap Camera challenges we’ve featured in the past: like that time Phillip Bloom had to shoot with a Barbie camera, or the time Gary Tyson had to do street photography with a 0.3MP kids camera watch.

Compared to those setups, the specs of this bunny camera seem almost luxurious.

True: we made mistakes. We tried too hard to pander to Russia in the Yeltsin era, ignoring the growth of corruption, authoritarianism and revanchism. We overlooked Russians’ resentment as their country drifted from the European mainstream and our vulnerability to the steps they could take in response. We neglected Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and the countries of the Caucasus. The Blair government was bewitched by the Putin regime’s offer of cooperation against Islamist terrorism in 2001. We have been frequently dazzled by the spurious commercial prospects offered by Russia – in particular BP’s decision to form an alliance with Rosneft, the main Russian oil company, was a shameful example of greed and short-sightedness.

Russia is a revisionist power

Russia wants to rewrite the rules in three ways. First, it does not believe that its neighbours should make their own decisions about their geopolitical future. Russia’s security, in short, depends on these countries’ insecurity. Russia particularly begrudges the former captive nations of the Soviet empire their freedom, their prosperity, and their independence. These pose an existential challenge to the stagnant and autocratic model of government pioneered by the Putin regime.
