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.

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.

Photographer Matthew Nicholson created this paper Leica M3 that’s a working pinhole camera. It’s loaded with 35mm film, and even the strap is realistic and made with paper!
Francesco Capponi (Dippold on Flickr) has a fun printable template for creating your own nifty-looking 35mm pinhole camera.
All you need to do is print out the template on adhesive paper (size A4) and stick it onto some cardboard. Once you’ve cut out all the required pieces, follow the visual instructions provided to put it together:
Unlike many other paper pinhole camera projects we’ve seen, the final result for this one actually looks pretty nice, and will definitely make a conversation piece. If you do take the time to make this thing, be sure to report back to us with the resulting photographs!
