There’s a camera on your phone, yes, but there’s something about holding an actual camera that’s still pretty special.
For one, legitimate cameras take better photos, because it is their sole purpose, and not a factory add-on.
But picking out a camera for a loved one is kind of expensive, and even if you love someone a lot this Christmas, it’s a gift that can break or seriously dent the bank.
But what if it wasn’t? And what if it was more than just a camera? What if the camera was a puzzle as well? That’s definitely the idea behind Bigshot, a handy, make-it-yourself digital camera that’s sleek and not “crafty.”
You actually build this entire camera from the ground up, making it perfect for kids interested in photography or hobbyists looking to make their lives a bit more arty. And the photos taken with this camera will be art, because Julia Roberts said so.
Who it’s for
Artists; hobbyists; people bored of Lego; selfie-takers; loved ones who tend to break expensive things.
Where to find it
Available at Bigshot.
