OriginEdit

Robert Landsburg was one of the fifty-seven people killed during the eruption of Mount St. Helens. He had visited the area for weeks before the eruption to photograph the changing shape of the mountainside. When the mountain exploded, Landsburg took photos of the rapidly approaching ash cloud. He then rewound the film back into its case, put his camera in his backpack, and then laid himself on top of the backpack in an attempt to protect its contents. Seventeen days later, Landsburg's body was found buried in the ash with his backpack underneath. The film was developed and has provided geologists with valuable documentation of the historic eruption.

EffectsEdit

When it begins recording, will spew limitless clouds of hot volcanic ash from the lens. Rewinding the footage will reverse the damage of the most recent activation.
