Take beautiful photos with only a few plastic toy building blocks and a couple of old lenses.

Carl-Frederic Salicath from Norway has made a perfectly working camera using a few LEGO blocks and a pair of old binoculars. His camera design was inspired by traditional twin-lens reflex cameras that are classic in shape and style.

On Salicath’s blog, he goes through a step-by-step instruction of how he came up with the idea and how you can construct your very own LEGO camera. The clever device even uses LEGO parts to hold the film and release the shutter. The resulting photos are beautiful and have a vintage effect, similar to photos taken by a LOMO lens.
