When a fake camera technology is unveiled, it’s normally called a “concept”. When it’s published on April 1st, however, it’s called an April Fool’s Joke (e.g. last Friday’s Canon iPad monitor).

Simply load the canister into the camera as you would with film, shoot your photos, and download them by connecting to the canister via USB.
