The camera can shoot 6×6 square-format images, has a 150mm focal length, and makes use of gears and clutches to hold the film in place. The only thing it lacks is a shutter mechanism, so it has to rely on a pinhole with an aperture of F300. We guess creating a shutter mechanism with those plastic bricks has to be a totally insane and very difficult to achieve properly, so that’s like a tiny-little-near invisible speck on this totally amazing creation.
