The Flights of Fancy Pinhole Camera Kit is an ideal science kit for enquiring young minds.ï¾ Children get to build a camera, then take and develop photos with it just as it was done when cameras were first invented!ï¾
Slot the grooved squares of wood together to form a tight, light box (either glue or hold together with the elastic bands provided), attach the shutter cover to the front, then assemble the interior box from the pre-folded black card and insert, finally carefully create the pinhole (pin provided!)
Then comes the fun - load the light sensitive photographic paper into the camera in total darkness using only a red safety light for guidance which the kids can make by covering a torch with the piece of red cellophane included in the kit.
Next, choose a subject then take a photograph by opening the shutter keeping the box perfectly still for the allotted time.ï¾ Now it is time to get back to the dark room to develop the picture using the developer and fixer fluids provided.
A fun science kit for older children that makes a great gift and may just inspire a life long love of photography!ï¾
Includes clear and concise instructions and a fascinating booklet on the history of photography.ï¾ Suggested for children 12 years old upwards or adults can enjoy this as a joint project with younger children.
