Jason Hull, who goes by the name Jayfish on Flickr is onto something very cool. He scavenges flea markets, second hand stores and eBay for cheap plastic cameras, then guts them and gives them new life. A new life as a nightlight.
Before you troll down on Jason for destroying vintage cameras, he is quite adament about using cheap, mass produced cameras for his projects.
I’m not modifying cameras if they are in prisitine condition or if they’re rare, i’d rather they stay usable as cameras in those cases.
the ones i’ve chosen are lightweight plastic, produced in huge numbers and easily found for sale at flea markets/ garage sales/ ebay.
Anyhow, check out his lights below and tell me you’re not inspired.
