If you’ve got a bunch of vintage cameras that don’t work anymore and are lying around collecting dust, this new project might interest you. A Flickr user named Jason Hull recently went shopping at thrift stores and flea markets, picking up mass produced film cameras and repurposed them into something useful: by turning them into night lights.
While no specific instructions were given, the process is basically the same for all cameras: rip out as much as you can from its internals, until you have enough space to fit in a lamp which can light up the “shell” like a regular night light. In some cases, the lights were even sticking out of the cameras to give the appearance of an oversized flashbulb. Now you know what to do with those old cameras you have lying around. Head over to his Flickr page to check out more images of his camera night lights.
