Glitchwerks Chromafield

I was able to get my hands on the Glitchwerks Chromafield back in June of 2023. The Chromafield is a circuit bent Canon A540 digital camera. There are three switches to change the glitch effects as well as maintaining the features and functions of the camera.

I’ve done a bit of experimenting with the camera and I use it often when I’m out to capture glitches on the go. I’ve gotten some very vivid captures while out that bring a unique vibe to the world around us.

I’ve even used it as video input for a feedback loop at a live show. The colors were incredibly bright and brought a whole new dimension to the performance. I’ve also used it to capture TV footage for an instaglitch.

Overall I’m really happy with it and it’s a great addition to my glitch arsenal. One thing I had to do when I got it, just as an FYI, was replace the CMOS battery because it was dead. With no CMOS battery the camera drained the AAs very quickly.
