Steady, Focus, Shoot!

Do you dream of being a sports photographer, but can't get front row seats? Do you yearn to be a fashion photographer but are scared of women? Do you just want to hold a camera in your hand, but can't afford one? Save your quarters for NAMCO's Photographing Game Machine and snap away.

Never has a video game gotten further away from the excitement.

Pokemon Snap had this go out and take pictures of creatures and get points based on how closeup you got and how centered the shot is and how rare the creature is... it was actually a super fun game.

well being a photograhper myself and knowing the youth of the U.S. i would say it would not be so popular but i think if they marketed this idea to japan that this might become something pretty great. you know japan cannot grasp the concept for the marshmallow, and i still cant get the entire grasp on this concept of a game such as this.
