"DIY" cardboard  10x8 

I wanted to see if it was possible to make a simple camera using just a cardboard box and a vintage lens.

I added a tracing paper viewing screen and after some trial and error - a dark slide to convey the paper negative to and from the camera.

This worked! but with a fixed focus - it was tricky to use so I added a moveable front tot he camera linked to the box with the flexible black bin liner. This made focussing very easy - and this too worked! - Great fun.
