Casio Ultraman Camera Wants You To Smile As Tokyo Gets Flattened

Casio, Japan’s number one maker of point-and-shoot cameras, recently teamed up with Tsuburaya Productions to unveil the Casio Exilim EX-S200-Ultraman to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Ultraman franchise. Apart from the lousy silhouette design at the front, the camera’s main (and probably only saving grace) attraction is the ability to select Ultraman-themed picture frames to use with our photos. You can also select various battle ground sets from Ultraman lore, which by the way are looking dated, to use with your frame. The best thing about it? You can do your standard weaboo poses with your favorite Showa Era Ultraman and/or favorite monster alien to simulate your expression while some giant men in rubber suits stomp all over Tokyo without regard for human life. Curiously, marketable Ultramen such as Tiga and Zero were nowhere to be found, making it obvious that frail oldies are the targeted segment here. Here are the tech specs for those more inclined for geek jargon…
