    A working paper camera that you can use 35mm fim in.

    The site says that this model was originally published in ABC Magazine a few years ago.

    They also have a nice 3D animation of the easy assembly process.

    Download zip file is 3.16mb.

    Brings back some memories! I built a pin-hole camera in a Graphics Arts class in high-school. We used a Quaker Oats oatmeal box, oriented vertically. A small hole was cut in the side, and then a sheet of aluminum foil was taped over it from the inside. Oh, the flap from the hole was left attached to one side. Then, in the darkroom, we loaded a sheet of black and white photographic paper and put the lid on. Once outside in the bright sunlight, the camera was placed on a solid surface and aimed at the object to be photographed. A hole was pierced through the foil and the camera was left to sit for a specified period of time. (I can't remember how long, so don't ask!) When the time was elapsed, we closed the flap and held it closed until back in the darkroom, where the "film" was removed and developed. Rather simple and fun, if one has access to a darkroom and film developer!
