If you enjoy building Lego, Technic or Meccano then chances are you'll get a kick out of the Konstruktor 35mm single reflex camera.

The front of the box reads "Build your own 35mm SLR camera in 1-2 hours!" and while this is true (for the most part), we found ourselves spending a lot more by having to retrace our steps and disassemble troublesome parts.

That's not to say that our experience with the Konstruktor was not enjoyable - it's the perfect project for anyone with even a smidgen of interest in Lomography or photography to dabble in. More so it teaches the keen photographer the essential workings found on the inside of a camera.
