Gaining the trust and confidence of a small child is hard enough for a photographer, especially when looking through a camera lens, which can be intimidating to children. The Phoxi Caterpillar Camera Buddy from Phoxi Tog is an accessory that becomes hands-free when you wrap it around the exterior of your lens, camera strap, or the brim of your hat. It helps gain the attention of an infant or a small child while taking their portrait.
The soft and plush Phoxi Friend can extend in length and is also adjustable, so the child can build and maintain confidence while interacting with the toy. If you start to lose the attention of the child; the built-in squeaker in the head of the Camera Buddy will regain that attention. For pet photography, the Camera Buddy works well with cats and dogs also.
