Camera Shy is an alien from Tech 10: Star Spirit.

His evolved form is Ultimate Camera Shy.


Camera Shy's abilities include:

  • Photography Entrapment
    • This ability allows him to trap people or objects inside a photograph by taking a picture of them using his forehead camera. Anything that fits inside his lens view can be trapped. Once trapped, the trapping photograph is printed out of the slot on his chest and stored inside a hollow area in his torso.
  • Photograph Teleportation
    • This ability allows him to inhabit and move through photographs. For instance, if he were to enter a picture of Niagra Falls that was taken in 2012, he would be able to emerge from said picture into that time and place, able to return to his origin point at any time.
  • Photo-Negative Matter Inversion
    • This ability allows him to 'invert' anything he touches, making them unable to interact with any matter that hasn't also been 'inverted'. If he uses it on himself, this makes him essentially untouchable, but also completely useless for offense.
  • Photography Summoning
    • This ability allows him to 'summon' any person or object from any photograph he wants. The 'summoned' objects will only be 'photocopies' of the real thing, and can be dismissed at any time.


Camera Shy is a somewhat robotic humanoid with an orange and gray color scheme. He has claws instead of hands, and his legs end in three sharp points that keep him balanced. His head is connected to his body by a 'tripod' of sorts and a spine-like tube. His forehead has constructs similar to a camera lens and two camera lights embedded in it. The StarTrix Requiem symbol is on his abdomen.


Camera Shy's physical strength and durability are somewhat lacking.

As demonstrated by Rockoustic in Camera Shy's debut, Camera Shy's abilities are useless against a target he cannot get a direct picture of.



  • Camera Shy is the third Tech 10 transformation at least partially based on a crab, the other two being Temportal (biology-wise) and Viva La Vida.
