You want people not to look unhappy on your photos? Build this necessary enhancement for your camera, which you can slip on the Cameras "Hot Shoe".*
It is also useful when taking photos of children. They can earn some sweets if they smile.

I discovered this idea of camera tuning at this website.

*Mounting point for external flash

Step 1: Tools

You need:
- a PEZ sweets dispenser
- a saw (maybe a knife will do as well)
- a file (if you want to do it especially pretty)

and of course a camera with hot shoe

Step 2: Let's Do It

Saw off the dispenser's feet and leave a plastic border of about 3mm on the left and on the right, so that it matches your hot shoe. File the edges where necessary.


Step 3: Slip On

Slip the tuned PEZ on your hot shoe and fill it with candy regularly.

    This is awesome! I would love to do this however, my camera does not have a hot shoe. I dont even know what a hot shoe is! (What is it?) Is there any way to do it without having to glue it to my camera?

    a 'hot shoe' is the socket in the top of SLR cameras that allows it to attach a larger flash or a remote for a much larger flash, these are usually used by professionals.

    Awesome fun! I've never properly learned how to take decent pictures with a flash - now I have something useful to use that awkward clippy thing on top of my camera for.
