Imagine Owning an Anime Studio

The Anime Studio

Back in the day one of the best tools for teaching the principals of animation was to give a child a Super 8mm camera and let them shoot stop motion animation frame-by-frame using their collection of toys as models in motion. Later some video cameras would be able to do the same trick, however it was never quite as cool. So I’m glad to see a digital twist of this old idea with The Anime Studio which actually looks like a miniature version of an giant old school animation stand:

However unlike one of those real Oxberry cameras this camera allows you to swing the neck to create your own animated dioramas. Although I love the fact that if you use the camera in the upright position that kids (or adults who are kids at heart) can shoot hand drawn flipbooks frame-by-frame.

The camera features an easy-to-use interface and saves your animations to a 1 gig memory card. The video is shot at 4 frames per second and according to the overview can then be beamed to to a television.
