Model Camera – DIY with Kids

Haven’t taken any photos by wet film for about a decade. But buying a film camera is not an economic option until I saw this model camera and ordered it online.

There are some sample photos on the box.

Eventually, we finished the roll of film and brought it to development.

It is unbelievable. The shop needed five days to develop one roll of film. The one-hour development had long gone.

I will post the pictures by the next week.

Wish me good luck.
