The Impossible Project and Polaroid have teamed up to launch the Polaroid Classic line. Every year the two companies will be collaborating on 6-10 Polaroid Classic branded products. Guess what the first product is? A DIY paper camera kit!
Build your own Polaroid camera classics! This Do It Yourself craft set makes you the proud owner of six legendary, analog instant camera replicas (see the Specs tab for the included camera models). The paper models of classic Polaroid cameras are fun to create and perfect in every detail, including mini faux Polaroid photos that develop when rubbed.
Tiny Polaroid pictures that develop when you rub them? That’s certainly fancier than Matthew Nicholson’s papercraft Polaroid camera (on the other hand, Nicholson’s can take actual pinhole photos).
P.S. They’re also teaming up to sell off the last batch of Polaroid film ever produced.
Photographer Matthew Nicholson, the guy behind the amazing Lie-ca paper pinhole camera, is at it again. This time he’s building a working paper camera that looks just like a Polaroid One Step Rainbow camera! Branded as the Fauxlaroid Land Camera, it will apparently use actual instant film that the user “processes” manually.
Samsung made this creative paper camera ad a couple years ago to promote its WB500 compact camera. The magical pencil in the ad would be one heck of a camera accessory.

Remember that super realistic Leica M3 paper pinhole camera we featured back in June? You can now print and make your own! Photographer Matt Nicholson has created a 10-page PDF with the printable template and detailed instructions, and is selling it for £1.50 (~$2.5) in his online store.
In China there’s a belief that burning paper representations of a deceased person’s belongings allows it to be transfered to the afterlife for the departed person to use. Au Yeung Ping Chi, an effigy maker in Hong Kong and the owner of Bo Wah Effigies, is often asked to create effigies of trendy consumer items such as iPhones and Nintendo Wiis for relatives of those who die young. The above is a camera he created for the purpose of afterlife photography. He’ll probably be asked to create Leica M9 Titanium editions soon.
