Chrononaut

Think your camera looks a bit too 20th or 21st century? Add some steampunk vibes with this unique (if not useful) hotshoe accessory. Part of the Camera Punk range of stylized photography accessories, the Chrononaut is a decorative cube to fit in your camera’s hotshoe.

Its creator Momo Lee calls it “a steam powered time-travel machine… perfect for any world & time traveler”.

The Chrononaut is $160, or about £100, available on Etsy. That might sound like a lot for what is basically a paperweight, but some of my dead flashguns are equally non-functional and less aesthetically pleasing in the hotshoe. So there’s that.

Any steam punk fans out there?
