Here’s a fantastic Christmas present idea for any friends who still read books or work as librarians – a camera that’s disguised as a book. Disguised as an extremely unrealistic little book, but still. It’d do for someone who likes books and therefore must also like book-related items.
Incredibly, it’s a proper camera. Proper as in it uses film, like in the old days. Recording your memories to old 110 format camera film, buying a Secret Book Camera means never having to feel memory card size anxiety again.
HOW FILM CAMERAS WORK
A little window opens in the front to let the view in. The film then records this somehow onto a bit of plastic with chemicals. You then take the film to a shop and the shop makes it into a photograph. You can have it in 6″ x 4″ or pay an extra £1.75 to have it in 7″ x 5″. You may also have a matt or gloss finish.
It’s a complicated process. The modern system of simply keeping all your photos on a hard drive until it breaks and they disappear forever is so much easier.
