The Most Eye-Catching DSLR Ever

We never thought we’d say it, but someone finally found a DSLR that makes Pentax’s limited edition models look bland. Erle Kaasik was walking on a sidewalk in Seattle when she walked past a woman using this eye-popping Canon DSLR and 28-135mm lens that a local artist had decorated. It looks like someone mistook the camera for a cupcake or something.

Update: The artist is Wonderpuss Octopus Ink

    Im sure the facial expressions of people when they see that thing are priceless. I wonder if that’s why she decorated it like that.

    OMG!! This is the best camera disguise! Even looking at the picture while knowing what it is  I find it difficult to make out the camera from all the visual clutter. It sure is eye catching, but you can not tell what your eye really caught LOL

    Hideous. Another pathetic attention-whore “LOOK AT ME!!!” tool.

    Love it. Why advertise for a camera company when you can advertise that you’re creative and unique?

    Looks like a clown threw up on it…

    Wow, I’m pretty impressed. These can turn out really ugly but this is solid work, nice details too.

  • Rick Bennett

    Its probably perfect for baby and camera-aware street photography.

    At least if it ever gets stolen, it won’t go by unnoticed.
    “Did you see anyone go by here with something covered in clown puke?”

    Somebody ate too many skittles and birthday cake and threw up all over their gear.

    try using that when shooting discreetly is needed

  • Kevin Wu

    My eyes actually HURT when I saw this picture. 

  • Pau

    that’s quite a crap paint job for such an expensive item.

  • Tainahpaulain

    does she use it with kids?

  • Michael Thompson

    Wonder what the resale value is?

  • Mollie

    The stuff that’s on there actually looks a lot like play foam…sticks to just about anything but it’s easily removable as well. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure I’m not.

    Wow.

    Now I don’t think it’s really ‘pretty’, perhaps even hideous…but to go down that attention-whore path is just uncalled for. . .
