For Photographers With A Sweet Tooth, A Chocolate DSLR Camera
By John Yong, 01 Mar 2013
San Francisco-based artist Hans Chung has created a detailed replica of a Canon DSLR camera that is good enough to eat.
Made entirely of delicious chocolate, the five pound camera even comes with a chocolate battery grip and camera lens.
When asked about the process, he said, “I buy a real camera and a real lens. Then I make a mold box and make a mold. The camera is pretty much destroyed in the process.”
“Making a mold of something so intricate is not easy [or] cheap. The mold material required to achieve this level of detail does not last beyond 10 copies. After 10 copies, some details start to fade away.”
“Each camera takes about 5 hours of elapsed time of tempering and pouring. I only have a small chocolate tempering machine.”
This limited edition edible chocolate camera can be yours at US$500.
