LAST Camera - A New DIY 35mm Camera with Two Interchangeable Lenses

Nowadays, taking photos with smart phones and apps is deemed as photography. Now that even digital cameras are being taken over by smart phones, have analog film cameras become something from the Stone Age?

LAST Camera is a DIY 35mm camera made by Japanese company named PowerShovel Ltd., which sell a variety of camera gear under the SuperHeadz brand. The camera, when successfully constructed, is a black boxy 35mm SLR with two interchangeable lenses, a 25mm wide-angle and a 45mm.

Like a film camera there's a viewfinder, accessory shoe, shutter button, bulb level for long-exposure photography, tripod mount, and winding crank to advance the film. There's also a door you can slide open to let in light intentionally, for artistic purposes. If you're a savvy hobbyist, you can paint the parts before assembly to make it exclusively yours. And, there will be additional parts you can purchase to add onto the camera.

Here are some of sample images taken with the LAST camera:

The camera is now available on for US$60.
