This LEGO Hasselblad Camera Works… *almost*

This all-LEGO Hasselblad 503CX built by Helen Sham is a functional model doing everything the original camera does – well, except the part about taking pictures. It has a mirror for the viewfinder that gives you a reversed image of your frame, includes a spring-loaded shutter button with a running counter, and has parts that can be separated just like the real Hasselblad. The LEGO Hasselblad 503CX has been built out of 1120 parts, and surprisingly, in just 2 hours. Scroll down for a video of Helen demonstrating the camera and its mechanism.
