Digital Conviction Review

Official Review

When I first started to watch digital conviction and I saw Robert Smith wearing the customary street magician garb of all black with a skull cap and hoodie, I groaned. Here we go another half baked street performance. (OK, I admit, I am an old guy) However, I was pleasantly surprised.

The effect is killer. It really is! Robert teaches it extremely well and gives you tips on how to work up to the full effect. The effect is somewhat complex. You won’t be doing this straight out of the box, so to speak. It will take practice and effort. (Imagine that)

You get to see this performed live on the street and witness the reactions it gets. Very good.

The effect is logical, the methodology is logical and Robert explains the psychology of why each move works. It is obvious that not only has he given this a great deal of thought, but he has performed it a great deal as well.

Since this is a multiple phase effect, Robert shows you how to practice each phase of the effect until you get good at it (in front of an audience) and then add the next phase.

Since it uses a cell phone (and when you get good at it . . . their cell phone) this really brings a card trick to a new level and as Robert points out . . . they keep the picture on their cell phone as a actual evidence of the miracle they just witnessed.

I am really impressed with this effect.

Digital Conviction is an amazing effect that can be performed anywhere and anytime with all borrowed objects. Everything is completely ungimmicked and examinable and the spectator keeps a souvenir that will surely make you unforgettable.

Here is what happens in the effect. You approach the spectator and remove a joker or any card out of the deck. "We will use this as the wild card but we'll get back to that in a moment. Please will you select any card?" The spectator has a free choice of any card, nothing is forced. The selected card then gets lost in the deck. "Let's get back to the Joker." You remove the joker and place their initials on the corner of the joker. "Remember the joker is the wild card. Let's make this moment more memorable and take a picture." You now borrow their camera phone and take a picture of the joker with their initials. The spectator confirms that the picture on the camera phone is the initialed joker. The phone is immediately handed to the spectator and placed face down in their hand. "If I take the joker that we just took a picture of and give it a shake you can see that it changes to your selected card". With a closer examination the spectator sees that her initials are now on the selected card. Now you go in for the kill. "If that card changed in my hand then the picture in your hand should have changed too..." BIG reaction as the spectator just realized that they saw you take a picture of a joker with THEIR initials on it and it changed to their selected card with their initials on it.

This effect is huge and it's a worker.

Here are a few important points to remember:
  • Uses no gimmicks
  • Easy to do
  • Freely chosen card
  • Uses all borrowed objects
  • Requires no setup
  • Use any phone with a camera function
Also as an added bonus you will receive an additional bonus effect using cards and a camera phone.

If you are looking for an effect where you don't have to carry any extra material and an effect you will actually do, then Digital Conviction is for you.
