  1. Surprised he didn't mention GBxCart RW. Very cheap and versatile option.

  2. I loved game boy camera. I even had the little printer to make my own stickers

  3. Liking and commenting just because the omaze ad was excellent. I haven’t even watch the video yet :O

    I like a lot the Gameboy Camera, it would be nice for me get an SNES Jr and a Gameboy Player too to make some mess with it too.

  5. This reminded me of the Dex Drive for N64, which could rip your save data from N64 memory cards onto your PC — I remember making a Geocities page for people to upload and trade data, which was kinda cool for trading custom characters and maps, etc, but it turns out that NOT MANY OTHER PEOPLE had Dex Drives and also I was like 14 and lived in a tiny town and had one friend, and wow if you've read this far you must be bored

  6. me watching the popcorn cooking in the microwave

  7. Booo youtube algorithm. Stan low res gameboy camera pics 😤👊✨

  8. $30,000 and spend it anyway I want?

    Okay I'll buy SEGA'S Daytona, and the rest I'll spend on blow and hookers

  9. Sorry I didn't care about the video after the amazing ad at the beginnig

  10. for years me and brother have had a joke about a gameboy camera dick pick, imagine you receive an unmarked letter in the mail with only your name and a postage stamp on the front and your address on the back. you open the litter and there is a tiny 1 in by 1in piece of paper with a vaguely round and pointed stick jutting front a murky background, the outline of a penis, you have been rick rolled by a troll with vulgar images taken with a gameboy.

  11. This is so cool! I kind of want my own gameboy camera now.
    Have you considered using a Marseille active hdmi cable to bump up the resolution for your stream? Linus tech tips had a video about it, and it seemed to work really well. Perhaps in combination with an ossc?
    Anyway, keep it up I really enjoyed the video

  12. If the home arcade of your dreams is not time crisis, then what are you doing with your life, seriously

  13. I want to see someone use the photos as like, sprites for a game and then maybe some other pictures as the backgrounds and soofs

  14. Every minute of this video was so fun!!! Thanks for making it!!

  15. Great video the pictures give you a warm retro throw back feeling thank you for that 😊

  16. Your videos are always interesting, insightful, well written and with no waste. Really a pleasure.

  17. Liked and comment, because I wanted to get a GBC for a time now, and welp, this video pushed me to order one (and all the stuff from the video to actually do shit with the photos)

  18. Is… Is your desktop wallpaper just a bunch of John Kalodners? 😂

  19. i recently found mine and put in my SP. got some cool pics of some dead relatives including my mom on it that i dont even remember taking. one day ill figure out how to get them off but for now its safe it a drawer

  20. i love this passion you have for the gb camera, all of your vids are so entertaining

  21. Conspiracy theorists take their pictures with the Gameboy Camera

  22. Trying to think of a comment to help with algorithm engagement…nope, I got nothin’! Scroll on!

  23. I wonder what happens if you use an AI upscaler on these images; how would they look?

  24. If I get $30,000 bruh im buying a friggin college education

  25. I actually just got some 3d printed parts delivered in the mail to modify my gameboy camera to support both pentax and canon lenses. I will probably be buying a GB01 at sometime in the near future.

  26. This is really interesting stuff. I like the idea of tech restraints to force distinct style of image.

    Me: Finally, more people are learning the fact that my home country EXISTS!!!!

  29. I remember an article a while ago about a guy using a gameboy camera to take (relatively) nice pictures of the moon. Super cool.

  30. Awesome details and video! I was also inspired to try the Game Boy camera as a webcam. I made my setup slightly simpler again by using a Super Game Boy + a Retro-Bit Super RetroTRIO Plus 3 in 1, which gives your direct HDMI output and a cheap USB/HDMI capture dongle!

  31. Imagine when the Analog Pocket comes out and we can use the GB Camera with that device 🤔

  32. Why do you yell? Buy a better microphone

  33. Bob what camera do you use to film your videos

  34. Getting the Pokemon Red save with GB01, hacking it into the 3DS virtual console pokemon, putting those pokemon into Home with Bank, aaand BOOM, i have my 20 years old Charizard in Shield

  35. Hey, I have one of those cart readers. Time to go shopping for a gameboy camera!

    so relaxing
    I have a gameboy camera I picked up last year for old times sake. I only have a crap GBA original that you cannot see the screen on and has no battery cover to take pictures with using it. Overall it's cool but I've always wanted the printer. I wish there was a better way to print than the thermal printing that comes from the OFFICIAL gameboy printer. If someone made one that would print the pictures a bit better like how they were intended to look that would be cool. I never had the printer as a kid but the gameboy camera was one of my first digital cameras and part of the start of my love for photography. I just bought a new vlog camera this week the Sony Powershot DS (Digital Still) HXC80. I was considering the Canon Mark II for a point and shoot toss in my bag vlogging camera but it didn't have the flip monitor AND was over $600. The Powershot was only around $400. So far I am a lot happier with the Canon cameras I've used both for digital and analog over the years. In high school I took a photo class and had to learn how to develop in the dark room and also develop the film from the roll in this machine where it heats and dries the exposed roll or something. I barely remember the film development part but projecting the film to be developed on paper was a lot of fun and gave me a new love for photography. I now have a liking for somewhat older phone cameras which have that lagginess and distorted image that came with earlier mobile cameras before we had camera phones that are better than many old and casual cameras. I have the Blue Gameboy Camera in a plastic bag in storage in my closet and I found several mobile apps that ATTEMPT to recreate the gameboy camera but generally fail to do so. I still use them from time to time.

    All of them are on iOS except one called Retroboy I got for my Android. Retroboy is free and is probably the best of the bunch in terms of gameboy camera app knock offs. I wish my primary phone had Retroboy.
    On iOS I downloaded 8bit: Camera which is my favorite for its simplicity and relative closeness to the gameboy camera. I think it was 99 cents for that one but there's no adds and it works pretty solid. There is also one called "BitCam" which also is super minimalist and has a few basic color palattes and is much more "bitmappy" than the other apps. Finally I downloaded one called PowerUp which offers in-app purchases to unlock cameras imitating different systems. Of course the gameboy camera is one of the ones you have to pay for. It also recreates what photos would possibly look like on other retro consoles like the Genesis and SNES though to mixed (mostly poor) results. Powerup does have a fun user interface with a UI that imitates the controllers and themes of each system. If I was going to recommend one for iOS it would be BitCam because it's free and if you have 99¢ I'd get 8bit: Camera. I believe 8bit: Camera was developed a few years ago so it has a retro style feel to the app that is trying to imitate a retro camera. I think this is just unintentional and the logo for the app icon looks like it was drawn in MS Paint. I'm sure there has got to be someone who can do a better job making a gameboy camera app that shoots 1:1 or as close to imitating the gameboy camera as possible. It would probably take a lot of work to get that image to look as pixelated and messy as the original but I think they could just port the gameboy camera and then program some algorithm to interpret how the gameboy camera lens and software would interpret a picture. If Nintendo did it that would be awesome but I don't see that coming.

    Brian Eno has a great quote about outdated mediums. I think anyone could relate to it if you are into retro stuff.

    “Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit – all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.”
    ― Brian Eno, A Year With Swollen Appendices

  37. So I see you are required to wear a mask in public open spaces.

  38. If you like this kind of stuff, check out @retrobigini on Instagram, he is a genius
