Origami Bank Notes SLR Camera

2010-08-24 10

If you’re having that kind of camera itch that your current funds wouldn’t suffice at the moment, then you can consider this tipster as a kind healthy therapy that can sedate you from being a whiny kid.

It’s actually a 1000yen note.

Okay here is what happened, I was surfing the net and I saw this really cool Banknote origami of an SLR camera, and I searched High and Low for the instruction. I finally found it here – orudorumagi11.deviantart.com/gallery/#/dxy0zq

It was such a struggle. After figuring out of how to do such a cute little thing, I posted my masterpiece in my tumblr page afterwards just for the sheer cuteness of it, and unexpectedly, I received a lot of enquiries regarding it. In my desire to share the creativity to everyone, I finally decided to make a video of it which took me another couple of hours, around 5 hours including recording and editing.

Well, I think this isn’t for the impatient kind, but hey, it’s something worthwhile doing and will keep you distracted in case you’re having one of those chronic G.A.S. attack which is just impossible to cure. Even a dollar or two is enough for this origami SLR!
