Made-up Japanese photography word o’ the day

As I sit in the airport waiting for a flight to PMA in Las Vegas, I’m reminded of a word coined by Adobe market research (I believe) to describe enthusiast photographers in Japan: "Fotomaniaku."  Sure, it just means "photo maniacs," but doesn’t it have kind of a fun mouth-feel?  Now I’m picturing a camera-wielding guy with Mr. Sparkle eyes ("I am disrespectful to shutter lag!!").  T-shirts to follow. :-)
