Broken vintage cameras repurposed as nightlights


It's never nice to see a camera which has stopped working, destined to life out the rest of it's years unused in the bottom of a dusty old cupboard.

And it's with this in mind that Jason Hull has embarked on a mission to give a new like to old cameras from the 50s and 60s.

That's because Jason is converting cameras he finds at flea markets,  garage sales and on eBay into working nightlights which plug into the wall and give a nice glow.

Writing on Flickr he said: "I'm not modifying cameras if they are in prisitine condition or if they're rare, i'd rather they stay usable as cameras in those cases.

The ones i've chosen are lightweight plastic, produced in huge numbers and easily found."
