When I was eight I was given an "Adventure Kit" which included my first ever camera. A plastic box with a viewfinder. You put a film in pressed the button, it went click - 125/f8! I'd get given a 24 shot film every now and then and if my parents were feeling particularly generous we'd get it processed too. It was a thrill to use and every click was a special moment to be recalled weeks later once the film was developed. The quality of the pictures mattered not a jot - there was always enough image there for my memory and imagination to fill in the details. This Lego camera takes me right back to those days. You press a button it makes a picture; what more does a child need?
Here's a link showing what a pro can do with it - demonstrating the camera's "special qualities" better than any written review:
(Okay, try a YouTube search for "Chase Jarvis Lego Camera" to see the cameras capabilities clearly demonstrated - Amazon doesn't accept links)
In Chase Jarvis' own words "The Best Camera is the One That's With You (tm)"
As soon I saw this camera I wanted one for myself. Why? Well I love photographing people and as you'll see in the video it's a great ice breaker with strangers!
Cons: Lo spec, rudimentary functionality - no one takes you seriously.
Pros: No one takes you seriously, cheap as chips, fun, smiles, fun...
You can build your own accessories - mine has lens cover like in the video plus, today, a little lego winch with a hook on a thread for luring cats and kestrels!
Did I mention fun?
Top-Tip: Upload your pics with instagram style processing and no-one will guess it wasn't taken on a vastly more expensive trendy smartphone - WiN !!
