Does this sound familiar, casual photographers? There’s nothing more frustrating about being asked to take someone’s but then being excluded from that same picture. Unless the asker is a complete stranger, it’s slightly rude to ask to have a photo taken without being in it yourself. To be truly inclusive, they could at least have the decency to setup their tripod and put it on a timer so that you can be in the photo too. Well, thanks in part to a new camera, you’ll never have to worry about not having your photo taken while shooting photos of others.
According to Geekologie, the new Ion Twin Video Camera trumps all before it, as it not only takes photos and videos of the subject itself, but also photos of the person shooting the photos and video. Because who doesn’t want to see a photo of a person taking a picture, right? As the product’s description states, “for every action, there’s a reaction” and it can be yours for only $200. While we’re not exactly sure if this will revolutionize how travelers take pictures, it could be useful to prove to mom and dad or boyfriend or girlfriend back home that you actually visited the Eiffel Tower of the Colosseum of Rome, instead just sending them a random Flickr stream from Paris or Rome while you sat at the hostel bar all day trying to pick up other cute travelers.
