Got some of those slide film mounts lying around? It’s time to gather them and put them to good use if you don’t have a slide projector to use them with. A Minneapolis-based designer came up with a cool idea to turn 35mm slide film mounts into business cards. Maybe it’s something that can inspire you to do something as creative, so go ahead and read on to find out more!

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
