The Game Boy Camera (GBC), released as Pocket Camera in Japan, is a Nintendo accessory for the handheld Game Boy game console. It was released on February 21, 1998 in Japan, and manufacturing was ceased in late 2002. As a toy for user-generated content, it can be used to shoot grayscale photographs, edit them or create original drawings, and transfer images between GBC units or to the 64DD art game suite Mario Artist. Its images can be printed to thermal paper with the Game Boy Printer. The GBC’s cartridge contains mini-games based on Nintendo’s early games such as the arcade video game Space Fever and the Game & Watch handheld game Ball, and a chip-tune music sequencer. Guinness recognised it as the world’s smallest digital camera as of 1999, and photographers have embraced its technological limitations as artistic challenges.
