So thought I would give building a camera out of lollipop sticks a go, Went well! The back is a polaroid film holder for type 100 film so I used some Fuji-FP 100C I had lying about (which is an amazing film please go buy some now so they keep making it!) the bellows are just thick card and duct tape and the lens is off one of those old folding cameras you see loads in charity shops etc.They are normally really cheap and the lenses are in shutters which makes them perfect for trying to make cameras and playing about with, watch the video to see how I made the thing and how it all went.
