Whatever you call it: Someone made a Polaroid camera out of Popsicle sticks.

The back is a standard Polaroid 405, because you couldn’t really make fine-tolerance rollers out of softwood, though he did make his own bellows out of thin cardboard. (The lens and shutter came from elsewhere, though I guess he could’ve tried a Popsicle pinhole.) I also wonder whether the first vigorous tab-pulling will cause the thing to fall apart. But it does, amazingly enough, allow tilt-shift photography, and the next best option will cost about $400 m0re, so who’s to argue?

    If you watch the video, he actually constructed the bellows – perhaps the most difficult part of the project.
