An Upcycled Camera
April 28 will be International Pinhole Camera day...i decided to build myself a pinhole camera. there were alot of possible "bodies" i was contemplating using, like a dinosaur, a retro robot toy, broken cameras from the 50s...but while doing some cleaning, i found a box for a digital video camera i won from a dance contest. subsequently, that camera only last a couple of months...but the box was PERFECT for storing other things inside it....like film.
below are some photos that show how it works. i got the film advance wheel from a disposable camera. its being kept in place with plastic cut from a polaroid film cartridge. the rest of the parts are directly cut from the original camera packaging, and held together with electrical tape.
