Still too stubborn to move to a digital SLR? Are you a fan of how film photography looks? Check out the LAST Camera, which is a camera that you build yourself. Using several snap-on plastic pieces, anyone can build this DIY camera. The assembly of the LAST Camera reminds me of the Gundam model kits I used to build when growing up. Its perfect for the professional shutterbugs looking to experiment with a toy camera or to give to kids as their first foray into photography.

When fully assembled, the LAST Camera uses 35mm film and features the basic functions you’d expect: a shutter button, viewfinder, bulb lever, rewinding crank, two interchangeable lens (standard 45mm and a 22mm wide angle lens), and a tripod mounting hole. The camera also has an adjustable panel so you can create light leaks to add a bit of an artistic flare to your shots. Obviously, this isn’t going to replace your go-to camera, but it’s a great way to play with the dying analog film media.

The LAST Camera is made by PowerShovel Ltd., a Japanese company that sells other types of cameras under the SuperHeadz brand. You order one direct at SuperHeadz for 4,095 Yen (~$39 USD). But, those stateside may prefer the ease and convenience of Amazon — which sells it for $65 via Amazon’s third party sellers.
