Fernando Ramírez Martínez decided to try and see if he could build his own film camera using Lego, duct tape, black cardboard and some glue. The camera, which shoots 6" by 6" and sports a "lens" of 150mm with an aperture of about 1:300, works just great. Check out the mechanism and photos here. You can also see Fernando's Flickr group here.
