My best camera lost its shutter button a year ago. My second best camera lost its button five shots into today's Dragon Con day one cosplay harvest. My third best camera was purchased at Wal-Mart a half hour ago.

I finally get the hang of my expensive Nikon camera, and it self-destructs on me. I like to think it had been paying attention to the hundreds of costumed people milling about, did the math in its tiny camera brain, and committed suicide. I imagine it gave my iPhone 4 the finger as it took its final breath.

Still, between the Nikon and the iPhone I managed to capture a few winners today. We've got a mixed Final Fantasy team, some Mortal Kombat battlers, the old Dante, one hell of a Helghast, an adorable Link, the first Prototype's protagonist, and shit, is that Killer Instinct? Who the hell cosplays Killer Instinct characters?

Attractive people, apparently.

I took the liberty of sprucing up a few of the iPhone shots using a little app called Pixlromatic, just to make them not suck quite so much. The Helghast in particular turned out rather amazing.

I've also included a little video of a desperate me apologizing for the camera mishap to my iPhone 4. I am now in possession of a brand new Sony Cyber-shot, and am ready to take on day two. Wish me luck.
