Marta Crass created this incredibly realistic cardboard camera [1] without the use of any precision machining tools (like laser cutters or plotters [2]). Measuring 6.5” x 4.5”, the replica camera is modeled after a 1960s-era Nikon camera given to Crass by her grandfather. Although it doesn’t take pictures, the beautifully crafted camera showcases the potential of recycled cardboard [3] – and it can be yours for $150.
