A DSLR camera (digital single-lens reflex camera or digital SLR camera) is a digital camera that combines the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera and the optics with a digital imaging sensor. A DSLR camera uses a mirror that reflects the light coming from the camera lens to an optical viewfinder or the image sensor.

In this post, I show you how to build a DSLR camera from 6367pcs 5mm magnetic balls.

Supplies:

856 pieces 5mm light black magnetic balls 966 pieces 5mm silver magnetic balls 1800 pieces 5mm nickel magnetic balls 2745 pieces 5mm black magnetic balls
