Kim Jong Un uses a Nikon DSLR

Nikon Dark side

Nikon is sometimes referred to as 'the dark side', so within that scope it makes sense that Earth's own dark lord uses a Nikon too. The photo-op occasion is from his visit to a squadron of ancient Mig-15s in Chosun, flown by some unfortunate female pilots.
