My last instructable of the 2012 Gang show year... I would like to make yet another apology for supplying an instructable where the finished artical appears to be unfinished... I had some major technical difficulties with my camera which led to it dieing prior to me painting this camera, but hopefully i managed to take enough pictures for you to see what i created and how i created it.
I am trying to track down an image of the camera being used in the show, but until then the cardboard unpainted version will have to do
I guess if you like it, and if you make one show me
Step 1: Ingredients
What you'll need:
Cardboard tube (Like that from the inside of cling film or Tin foil)
Optional extra if you can find it or source it:
Round plastic lens, I used one from a pair of play geeky glasses, but you could cut one out from a plastic tub or similar.
Step 2: Boxing!
First you need to make a slim rectangular box... I cheated and re-sized two boxes i had left over from Christmas snacks, i won't insult you by telling you how to make a box...
Step 3: FOCUS!
On the pictures of the cameras i saw, the lense section of the camera protruded out of a small square section, since props don't always need to be 100% accurate, i affixed a small square box to the rectangular box from the previous section ( i have no pictures of this sorry) Picture two gives you some idea as to how the shape was created. I just glued it to the center of the box with my hot melt glue gun
