Anonymous asked: I just saw the Lollipop Stick Instant Camera and I think that's amazing!! I'd like to ask is there NO camera back NEEDED? Where you plug a cable release or shuttering, please?

you need a back to hold the instant film, you cold have no back and use a piece of photographic paper if you built some kind of slot for it. BUT you would then also need black and white chemicals and know how to develop the paper hope that helps didn’t quite understand your question
