Chocolate Camera: the Way to a Photographer’s Heart
January 29th, 2013
…and to the dentist’s office. Etsy seller Hans Chung has created the opposite of the camera that looks like a chocolate bar. I wonder which of the two is stranger. You be the judge. Behold! A life-size chocolate replica of the Canon D60, including a lens and battery grip. Your teeth just fell off didn’t they?
According to Hans, the mold that he used to create the chocolate was made from an actual D60 and lens, which were both rendered unusable in the process of making said mold. Granted, Hans didn’t say if the camera was already broken when he bought it. Still, he earns points for authenticity there. Chocolate connoisseurs might be glad to know that Hans used Guittard chocolate to make the replica. Or you might not be glad. I don’t know what you guys are into.
Having digested all those details and images, I’m sure you know by now that this is is going to cost you. Hans is selling the solid chocolate Canon D60 camera on his Etsy shop for $500 (USD), i.e. half the price of the actual camera. If it’s any consolation, as of this writing Hans said that he will make only 5 more of these, which makes it a lot rarer than the actual D60.
