Despite Warnings People Still Fried Their Cameras During The Eclipse

There’s no doubt that people were super excited to catch a glimpse of the first total solar eclipse to hit the United States since 1979. Cities and towns within the path of totality were hit with eclipse fever as tourists poured in for the incredibly rare opportunity. Of course,  along with that excitement came people wanting to photograph the event, and like how many ignored the warnings of not wearing the eclipse glasses, many innocent cameras were injured by people not using a solar lens to capture the eclipse.

One camera rental company, LensRentals, posted a blog detailing the different types of the damage to cameras and lenses that were returned after the eclipse. Among these include damaged sensors, melted shutters and damage to the lens iris. Most of the damage happened when cameras were left pointed to the eclipse, using the lens like a magnifying glass and melting some of the inside components. Except this time, instead of burning an ant hill until your parents call a therapist, you end up melting the critically important sensor in a camera that’s worth more than your kidney.

Luckily, LensRentals was prepared to deal with repairs by the forgone instructions and says the damage wasn’t as common as expected. Though the company says that the damage is considered neglect after the numerous warnings, so the added insurance doesn’t cover the damage. They hope this will serve as a warning to anyone wanting to photograph the next eclipse in 2024.

Capcom Set to Re-release Street Fighter II Cartridge For The SNES, Though it Might Catch On Fire

Capcom has teamed up with Iam8bit to release a limited run of Street Fighter II cartridges for the 30th anniversary for the game, which are fully functional. The run will produce 5,500 cartridges, with 1,000 being in ‘Glow-in-the-dark Blanka’ green and the other 4,500 in ‘Opaque Ryu Headband’ red.

Though something in the product page’s description suggests the game could catch on fire, “WARNING: Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire.”

Okay, so the game is unlikely to have any issues whatsoever, and is almost certainly not going to set of a Hadouken in your living room. Though, it’s still best to exercise caution and you probably want to shelf this one anyway, as it’s going to be massively collectible to any Street Fighter fan.

The cartridges will sell for $100 each and will ship sometime in November, but just buy an SNES Classic, which will be $20 cheaper and even has Street Fighter II built in. Just kidding, you’ll never be able to find an SNES Classic that’ll cost you less than $200 and little bit of your dignity off some guy on Craigslist who hoards them like a troll.
