KDS version of Gakken TLR

since few years ago, i was interested in film photography, DIY lo-fi photography stuff
previously I’ve made my own camera out of acrylic boards (with holga shutter and wai wai’s lens)

due to some reasons i have a few days spare (but not too spared) time at my office,
so i spent time composing the gakken TLR camera, which is a gift from my sister for my new office.

after composing it, i found it got only 1 shutter speed and 1 aperture size.
so i’ve decided to do something more on top of this toy-cam.

the very nice boxing of gakken Vol.25 – TLR

oops, the “mirror” is broken … (it is a plastic sheet mounted with a silvery layer)
it is beneficial to use a real mirror – so the reflection will be more bright and clear

so here i’ve got my piece of mirror ( i should use a proper “glass knife”)

the core part of this surgery – adapt the shutter line
let me make some explanation – the extra screw is to hole the slider in place
the slider is used to push the shutter plate to open
and the bar below is another place holder
* everything will be keep in place nicely after u put the original “focal box” on top

drill a hole at the right place (mark by pencil)
