2011-04-08 7

We’ve all heard of the recent fad of LEGO digital cameras but a large format one is completely unheard of! Until now of course.

Great innovations are born out of crazy ideas and Cary Norton idea is as crazy as they come! He took a lot of LEGO pieces and made himself a working, honest to goodness large format 4×5 camera! This sure is amazing news as I’d wager that more than half of us are too intimidated to ever try large format. If you have spare LEGO pieces from your childhood or from your kids, why don’t you give it a try?

Curious about the output? Here’s one. It’s stunning!
