Old Camera and Tripod Turned into an Awesome Desk Lamp

Kirsty over at kootoyoo transformed her old Cosina CT-2 into a neat desk lamp that emits light from inside the lens. The legs on the tripod can be adjusted, so it can be used as a floor lamp as well. It’d be awesome if she could make it so adjusting the aperture on the lens would change the brightness of the light. Kirsty is currently writing a tutorial that’ll teach you how to make your own — it’ll go on sale starting next week.

Camera – light – action… (via Craft via Make)

    If you use a GorillaPod you could make you’re own SnakeLight! :)

    Why put it on a shithouse tripod?

    I’d buy a 10 dollar lamp instead of wasting up a tripod.
