We have featured a number of Lego cameras here on Geeky Gadget but this latest Legoflex twin lens build by freelance photographer Carl-Frederic Salicath looks fantastic.
Carl-Frederic decided to build the camera after being inspired by Cary Norton 4 x 5 Lego Camera we featured back in April last year. The camera he chose for his project was a Twin-Lens Reflex (TLR) using 120-film made from Lego bricks.
A twin-lens reflex camera uses two identical lenses, one of which it uses for the user viewfinder and the other for exposing the film to capture to photograph. Carl-Frederic Salicath explains
“I marvel at how simple [the Brownie] is”- “A lens (that’s one lens-element, one!) a shutter blade, an aperture (in some cameras a metal plate with two different holes drilled into it) and some rolls to keep the film in place. That is all it took to shoot great pictures.”
