World’s First ‘Phodographer’ Dog Uses Heart Rate Monitor That Snaps Pics When He Gets Excited

Sure, professional photographers take a lot of photos of adorable dogs, but did anyone ever ask dogs what they want to take pictures of? With this new “Heartography” heart monitor and photo camera system, Nikon aims to let dogs show their owners what excites and interests them by snapping a photo from their point of view every time their heart rate goes up.

The heart rate monitor can be worn on a strap around the dog’s neck. The camera is worn on the dog’s chest with the help of a harness, and the two communicate with Bluetooth. When the happy dog’s heartrate goes up – which can be when he’s excited – the camera snaps a picture! It’s not yet clear if this cool photo system will be available for sale.

The first “phodographer” to take his interesting photos with Nikon’s system was a dog name Grizzler, who stars in their promotional video. Take a look at these incredible dog photos!

Grizzler has a heart rate monitor on his neck and a camera on his chest

Now he can take a photo of whatever gets him excited!

Go to 0:56, You can see the reflection of the camera man taking the picture instead of the dog below the left light indicator of the car with the trunk open. Fake advert?

That dog camera definitely did not take those shots. They are way too clean and focused

You mean you don't think the dog took the pic of itself from behind with the chest camera?? =) There are some test shots in there as well. Yeah it's advertising for Nikon Coolpix so if they cleaned up photos or retook shots of the cat it's still a great concept. =D
