Fun Movie + Photo Camera Gives You the Gift of Memory


The marvel of the moving picture is now at your fingertips. Remember the first time you drew those sequential stick figures on the outer margins of your 8th-grade copy of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’? The GIF computer file is sort of the modern version, and a new camera gives you physical copies.

Designer Jiho Jang captured this novel concept with his camera, the GIF-TY. It uses the burst-shot technology of a Polaroid camera and a ‘Zero-Ink’ printer to give you sequential photographs. They print out in a strip that allows you to rip each frame apart and stack in order to make a mini-film. The GIF-TY has a timer that can make the flip books between 1-5 seconds.

The two principle ideas behind a ‘movie’ – persistence of vision and phi phenomenon – are very captivating. Jang seemed to have this in mind when he created GIF-TY. The camera fully realizes this, along with that unique memory GIF-TY helped you create.
