Canon DSLR Camera or Piggy Bank?

by Paul Strauss

Ah, if there’s one thing we can rely on Brando for, it’s unusual stuff. One of the latest additions to the Hong Kong importer’s online emporium of wacky gadgets and geekery is this thing:


What you’re looking at is the latest in Canon DSLR technology, it’s a camera that runs on pocket change instead of batteries. Nope, I lied. Actually, it’s just a piggy bank, but it sure looks like a Canon EOS7D DSLR, doesn’t it?


It’s designed to look like a Canon EOS 7D, along with an EF 70-200mm USM II lens, which can be detached when you want to get your coins out. The kit even includes a matching lens hood, to complete the look. A real EOS 7D, along with these accessories would set you back about $4000. On the other hand you could buy more than 100 of these piggy banks for the same price.

Funny thing about it is that you usually try and hide your money in something that doesn’t look valuable, like an old shoe box, or a soda can with a false bottom. In this case, you’ll be storing your precious coins in something that actually looks expensive, further enticing thieves to walk off with it.  Still, if you’re a photography buff, you’ll probably want to get one of these to put up on your shelf to collect your spare change.

You can grab the DSLR piggy bank over at Brando for $35.90 (USD).
