My Lego Camera’s Cousin


As far as I know, Koen Beets is the first person to build a camera out of Legos from the directions I posted back in November. I was glad to learn about some of the tweaks Koen made to his version of my medium format Lego pinhole camera. Most notably, he was able to make it light-tight without using any tape! His solution was to make the walls four bricks thick. It looks pretty cool, and Koen has taken some pretty cool photos with it, too. Go on over to and check it out.

    You should come to the Mall of America and throw down at Legoland. There is a lot of potential here for some great PR.

    San Diego’s Legoland would be good too, but I think the MOA may be an even better place to show off your Lego skills.
