Instead of asking young children you are interested in capturing on film to “look at the birdie,” why not take the opportunity this Pentax and DC mash-up is giving you to ask them to stare into the wild eyes of the Joker and really think about what the consequences might be if they allow a circus clown to spritz them with their lapel flower (hint: they will probably involve acid scars). You’ll get some hilarious pictures that way.

DC Comics and Pentax have ganged up to put out a special edition of their Optio RS1500 camera. Just in time for the upcoming Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan (the best Earth Lantern), the RS1500 comes with seven DC skins, a 4 GB SD card, and a Green Lantern protective case. The retro-styled skins feature Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Catwoman, Joker, and, of course, Green Lantern. If they’re like the other Optio RS1500 cameras, you’ll be able to switch out the skins at will.

So far mention of the special edition camera has been limited to Europe, where it’ll retail for 129 Euros and be available on May 1st. If this seems like something you’d like to see stateside, get that sourpuss off your face and send some emails.
