DIY Camera Made Out of Cardboard, LEGO and Duct Tape

Dominique Vankan wanted to replicate the Autochrome Lumière color photography process developed by the Lumière Brothers back in 1907, which uses dyed grains of potato starch as color filters. But first, Dominique needs a camera - so instead of buying one, he decided to build it out of cardboard, LEGO and duct tape!

And as you can see from the last image above, the LEGO camera works just fine: Link - via Klocki and MAKE

Some of those old processes are beautiful. It looks like he's having some trouble with it but I hope he succeeds. It's interesting that Pictorialism is making a comeback just as automated digital cameras and PCs are making photography so easy. Ansel Adams is turning in his grave.
