Camera falls victim to Hello Kitty

The Empire claims a Fujifilm Z5.

Hello Kitty Hell

Usually the gadgets we see that have been conquered by the Sanrio empire are of dubious quality , though that obviously matters not to its loyal subjects. But Hello Kitty Hell, the spiritual leader of The Resistance , has come across a new item that has gotten some early nods from a few consumers.

Fujifilm's " FinePix Z5 ," which has received a few high marks in reader reviews, is the latest victim of Hello Kitty subjugation, festooned with Swarovski crystals, a gold emblem and, of course, the trademark Pepto-Bismol pink. All this for $500 on the Japanese market.

This is clearly a step up from the last Kitty-cam we saw. Our guess is that the empire needed new cameras to record our demise .
