"Available to order:

Limited run of two, here is a nice demo of another model of circuit bent camera!

Modified with one knob and two toggle switches, this camera is capable of the usual melty CCD sensor effects, but also has a really cool effect I have found unique to this CCD camera.

The knob controls two different vertical blur types (the effect is off in the middle.

One of the toggle switches enables another, more intense yet smooth blur effect.

The Other toggle switch enables a glitchy negative stripe / repeat effect by tapping into an unutilised 8 bit video stream on the cameras CCD sensor controller / image processor chip.
Just this camera, a capture card and a laptop makes a great audio reactive glitch art setup. You can simply rescan your LCD monitor with the camera to process any footage you want in post!

There is no need for a TBC, Video mixer or CRT TV when using this camera as it always puts out a valid composite video signal no matter how glitchy it gets. This means it will work with LCD TVs and even the pickiest capture cards


-12V DC 1A power supply input (PSU not included)

-PAL composite video output

-12 mm lens with manual focus included"
