Item #: SCP-698

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-698 must be contained within a 10m × 10m × 10m glass cube which will be placed in a room with mirrored walls and a single powerful light directly above it. Should the light fail, a single maintenance person must enter the room while wearing full bodied silvered HAZMAT suit and quickly cover the glass box in a silvered metallic tarp while they replace the bulb.

Description: SCP-698 is a small camera of undetermined make and model that appears to have been produced in the early 1960s. It has no way of holding film or producing the power that should be required for its use. Unless SCP-698 is not pointed at a mirror or a photorealistic image of itself, it will activate its shutter mechanism when a living being is in view of the camera's lens. Said living being has been observed to instantly disappear when the mechanism activates, and cannot be recovered in any known way. Due to the camera having no compartment for film, it is impossible to ascertain if a genuine photograph is taken at all.

SCP-698 was found in a small empty house outside of [DATA EXPUNGED] in rural Kansas, placed on a table and facing a mirror. Initial attempts to contain the item resulted in the loss of three level 2 personnel.

Addendum: As the exact conditions for activation of SCP-698's shutter mechanism are not ascertained (subjects exhibiting rapid movement have been able to avoid capture by SCP-698: tests suggest that object requires victim to be in sharp focus), further testing and handling must be signed off by a clearance level 4 member before any non-maintenance persons enter the room.
