We’ve seen all sorts of interesting Lego cameras: from miniature replicas to working DIY cameras. And if you’re a fan of vintage gear – you’re going to love this one! The 1914 Ur-Leica, or the “original Leica,” could soon become a Lego kit. But, it needs your help to get from an idea to reality.
We’ve seen some limited edition, incredibly expensive stuff Leica launched in collaboration with various artists. But the latest one is downright weird. Teaming up with MediCom Toy Inc., we now have a Leica Bearbrick teddy bear. Yeah, you read that right. What makes it even weirder is that the toy costs like an actual Leica camera, but there’s an important differece – it doesn’t take photos.
If you want to inspire your little one to get interested in photography, you may consider this new Barbie: a National Geographic photojournalist. In collaboration with NatGeo, Mattel has introduced a series of career dolls, and this one will certainly thrill the photographer and the inner kid in all of us.
As we all know, Leica is not really famous for its affordable prices. As a matter of fact, the company recently launched a $24K kit designed in collaboration with Lenny Kravitz. But now even us who can’t afford Leica gear can have at least something inspired by it: a wooden music box that costs mere $8.94.
We all know that LEGO bricks are the best toy ever. They’re so versatile that you can even build all sorts of photography gear with them. And now, Leica has launched a pair of LEGO Leica M camera sets that you can assemble just like any other LEGO toy.

Game Boy camera was launched twenty years ago, and technology has advanced immensely since then. Nevertheless, experimenting with this toy camera in the modern era is still kind of fun. Photographer Tim Binnion recently brought his to 2018 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, China. He captured the Formula 1 race with the 0.016-megapixel camera, and the results are unusual and pretty amazing.
We’ve seen Kai Wong goof around with funny cameras before. In one of his recent videos, he tested a digital toy camera you might wanna check out if you’re a Star Wars fan. He got this Millennium Falcon camera for Christmas, and he decided to test it out.
It’s a plastic “up to 5 MP” camera, but surprisingly, Kai took some pretty decent shots with it. If you ever needed a proof that gear doesn’t matter… Anyway, let’s take a closer look at this amazingly ridiculous little camera.
Fidget spinners have definitely made a breakthrough overnight. Now that every single child (and even some adults) around me play with it, I am still wondering – what on Earth does that thing even do except for spinning? Sure, it’s supposed to help you focus and/or relieve stress, but does it have any other application?
Well, as a practical girl, I decided to try and give fidget spinner a purpose in my own playground – photography. So I bought one, played with it, and here’s what I came up with.
