You might think you are into photography. You probably have a camera—maybe two. You go to cons and you take photos of cosplayers . But you are not hardcore. Not like this guy.

At the Nipponbashi Street Festa earlier this spring in Osaka, one photographer caught people’s attention with his gear set-up. It’s like a photographer’s exoskeleton. YouTube user Osaka Kankou Channel compared it to some kind of Mobile Gundam suit.

His set up was so impressive that people who attended the festival stopped him for photos:

Photography blogs like PetaPixel and ISO 1200 have been impressed with his set-up (some of which you can see below). As PetaPixel notes, his gear included multiple DSLRs, external camera flashes, several action cameras, a smartphone, and an external hard drive, among much more.

Dude’s camera suit is as impressive as some of the cosplay on display. No idea if his photos are any good, though.
