In this special he finally decides to perform an illusion using a camera, illusion just called "Camera Trick" (aka "Camera Vanish"), in which he makes disappear a CBS genuine camera, that he hides in a proper container. The camera transmits on a monitor present on the stage live images of the stage itself until few seconds before the container opening, and it appears empty: the camera is missing. See more »
