Film camera takes on a whole new meaning

This large film canister is actually a working 35mm film camera.

Transformer camera

Although its Web site calls it the Transformer Camera, we don't really see it resembling an Autobot or a Decepticon. However, there's more here than meets the eye as this large film canister is actually a working 35mm film camera.

The online store is in Korean. Here's what we can make out of it after running it through Google Translate. The lens' focal length is fixed at 35mm with an aperture of F10, and it requires an AA-size battery to operate.

Measuring 2.5 inches by 5.5 inches and weighing just less than half a pound, the camera is portable enough to carry around in a sling bag or backpack.

Given that film cameras are enjoying a mini revival these days, we'll probably see the Transformer Camera soon in novelty stores. If you can't wait, the Web site prices the shooter at approximately $20. No shipping details were provided.
