The Camera Obscura is a memo in Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.
|The "Camera Obscura" is a special camera created by Dr. Aso to capture supernatural phenomenon that couldn't be seen with the naked eye.
It was designed to photograph visions of the past and spirit entities, but it was a prototype and its function hadn't been fully tested.
Photographing "thing that ordinary people couldn't see" with this camera had an exorcismal effect.
Seijiro Makabe, a folklorist who had come to investigate All God's Village, borrowed this camera from Dr. Aso to photograph the village's rumored Forbidden Ritual.
Dr. Kunihiko Aso was a folklorist who studied the spirit world.
He modified the latest gadgets of his time, the camera, radio and projector, trying to create a machine that could capture supernatural phenomenon.
He was shunned by the academic world but friends with Makabe.
