    Who the heck is gonna pay 60€ to display a plastic camera at home? For that I could easily get a real antique to display!

    Well, it's a collector's item and I guess there a re a few collectors among us. ;-)

    LSI guy 1: "O noes, we got in a bunch of Konstruktors in the wrong plastic! They're translucent, totally unusable"
    LSI guy 2: "Damn! What are we going to do? Better chuck them in the trash...
    LSI guy 3: 'Wait! I've got an idea. Let's sell them as collectors items."
    LSI guy 1: "Great idea! But do you think people will fall for it?"
    LSI guy 2: Just add a few bucks to the price to make it more collectible."

    ;-)

    But to be fair, I actually think it's a fun idea. A bit pricey though...

    Not sure if the lens is at all usable, but it'd be interesting to see what effect using it on a standard Konstruktor would give, I'll not be spending £55-00 to find out though. Does look pretty, though!

    Sometimes it seems that product designers are just to high to work.
    It sure looks pretty and maybe for teachers (and I am a teacher) it could have some sense. But the price is to high for a useless camera.
    Giving it a second though; even for educational purposes is useless. I mean the mechanics can be seen (and used) in the regular black camera.

    @wil6ka & @stratski I could not agree more :)

    I guess what would be worthwhile seeing is how the film advance gears turn once there is film loaded. But yea, why would you make it more than twice as expensive as the one you can use? =/

    interesting!

    To see to whole functionality without wasting film, this camera needs some translucent roll of film to!

    So pretty! Pity that it can't actually be used

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
