Lucus Landers A camera enthusiast, recently created a very unique product: the world's smallest operable folding camera named Mini View Camera.
Landers (now 27 years old) is also a Brooklyn-based photographer, creating this camera to compete in the Bantam Tools lathe manufacturer's competition, with the rule of creating products of size. less than 1 square inch and has a logo of its rooster.
The factory built by Mr. Landers in the last few years
The production of this camera costs about 100 USD and about 30 hours of work (spread over 2 weeks).
"The hardest part to do is definitely the belly." – Mr. Landers shared. This abdomen must be made thinner than conventional cameras, so there will be light exposure, limiting the use of the device in dark conditions.
This is a 4-minute video about the process of creating a Mini View Camera camera:

And here are the camera images when it is completed:
This machine uses film, but is a miniscule cut from regular movies. Of course, with physical limitations, image quality can only be stopped at 'viewable', but at least enough to prove the machine's usability.
