When I was in high school I got my first camera, the venerable Pentax K1000. I learned all the principals of photography with that camera, and it holds a special place in my heart. So to see it (or at least a generic contemporary) in brick form from one of my favorite builders was a total squee moment this morning (luckily no one was around). Powerpig presents his latest addition to his mini camera series, the SLR. And the best news is a building guide is in the works so we can all have this little baby on our shelves.

Update: Chris revealed a little secret included in the kit he'll be selling soon, the back opens to reveal the film! The special printed bricks by customBRICKS really completes it.
