Someone by the username Zung92 submitted a functioning 35mm camera as a LEGO IDEA:
I would like to see LEGO not just a display toy, but a real functional tool that people can customize and use daily.
My most important objective is to make a fully functional 35 mm film camera entirely of existing LEGO parts. And the main goal is also to make it affordable and portable, that’s why I try to make it as compact as possible. ZH1 is built of 582 existing LEGO parts and 4 colours in total (main colours are metallic silver and black)
The camera comes with all the usual features you’d expect:
- Shutter button
- Film advance
- Film take-up reel
- Wind lever with wind release
- Customizable lens
- Full-frame or half-frame
If this came to fruition, I could see it taking off in certain circles and especially for kids wanting to get into photography. You might say it’d be good exposure for them. Geddit?!
