    Default Fun with the Gameboy camera

    While cleaning up my room today i came across my old GB camera, i decided to fire it up to see what was on it.

    I discovered some pictures i made a long time ago that i had forgotten about. All the pics below were made using the stamps that are built in and a tiny bit of drawing. I didnt have enough batteries lying around to print them out so i scanned my gbasp instead.

    Anyway here they are, (enjoy)

    This is a mario mini comic


    A tribute to animal hospital, (luigi is standing in for Rolf). Meanwhile a lakitu is giving a bulbasaur a very thorough examination (^_^)


    A secret unused cigarette advert from nintendo


    And finally what i would love to see happen to toad


    So thats my rather mediocre efforts, does anyobe else out there have any gb camera pics to show???? go on post them in i cant be the only one

    DO IT. Gameboy Camera + Super Gameboy + SNES + VCR = digital animation studio that would make Pixar jealous! I made some great (and violent) "movies" with that set up. Ah, the hilarity of self inflicted gunshot wounds to the stomach.

    the predecessor of the of eyetoy? haha... the only thing i'm missing in that equation is the gameboy camera...

    hope that self inflicted gunshot wound didn't hurt so much.

    No, you can see me laughing the entire time I'm doing it. ;-)

    Here's how we'd do it:

    1. Set up the camera in your Gameboy with the auto-shutter mode set to about 1 sec. to record a "movie".
    2. Do any necessary digital manipulation
    3. Put the camera into the Super Gameboy
    4. Record the playback mode on the VCR with your choice of background music

    Gameboy Camera was one of the coolest things ever. I wish I had bought a dozen of them when TrU was blowing them out. I used to use mine all the times for some artsy fartsy low-res pics (see my member pic) but I never even scratched the sruface with the animation or drawing bit.

    That rules!

    The Gameboy Camera kicks ass... mostly only because I got it for cheap when they were clearing them out though. Paying $60 for this thing wouldn't have been nearly as exciting.

    Still haven't gotten a Gameboy Printer though.

    How did you make those comics? I attempted to do something similar, but don't know how.

    I loved my GBC. Somewhere around here I have my camera, printer, and the official "guide" Nintendo Power put out for it. I used to have some cool movies I made where a G.I. Joe would turn slowly into a werewolf (using 3 figures, G.I. Joe, Chewbacca and a McFarlane Werewolf toy). It would be a portable gaming coup for Nintendo to release such a device for the GBA/DS...

    I have a Camera Link (they are not easy to find) to transfer pictures from the game boy camera to pc. It is new in the box. $15 includes shipping. PM me if interested.

    Take care,

    This is some serious GB camera usage:

    It's from Victor Kemp's website. THe same guy that I partenered with a couple years back to connect a gamegear to a TV.

    Edit: Psst, color pics from the GB camera

    Some time ago, someone was actually using their Game Boy Camera as a webcam, using the aforementioned Super Game Boy Setup.

    Excellent 'toons there, Importaku!

    Months ago I attempted to get my Game Boy Camera pictures downloaded to a PC. Someone here (FABombjoy) even helped me out but I never could get the software and the camera to "talk".

    Does anyone else do this? I always thought it would be fun to take the GB Cam to an event and post the pictures here.

    Nice pics!
    Yeah, there are so many things I wish I would have bought at certain times when my local toys r us was getting rid of them! Espcially Virtual Boy stuff and the gb camera's!
    I actually found 2 GB Camera's on ebay yesterday and bought them. Can't wait to get them home and try them out!
    Hopefully will find a printer in the next week or so.
