LEGO Hasselblad 503CX Camera Looks Just Like the Real Deal

by Conner Flynn

LEGO bricks can be used to create just about anything you can dream up. For instance, check out this sweet LEGO camera from Taiwan-based photographer and obvious LEGO genius Helen Sham. Some of you will know right away that it is a Hasselblad 503CX film camera, except that this one is created entirely of LEGO pieces.

From a distance, it looks incredibly real. Well, it may not be functional (yet), but the inside is just as detailed as the outside. Inside you’ll find a frame counter, film winder, and a spring-based shutter button with tactile sensation when firing the shutter.

But that’s not all. She can actually load a real film cartridge into this camera and even frame a scene with the folding waist-level viewfinder. This was clearly a labor of love for Helen. And it didn’t take her as long as you might think to build this beauty either. It took Helen only 2 hours and 1,120 pieces of LEGO elements to assemble, though I’m sure it took her much longer to actually plan out the construction.

I really hope that this will become an official LEGO set, and you can help make that a reality by voting for it on LEGO Ideas. Her next plans are to install a microlens so it can actually take photos, although it would capture digital images rather than film like the real deal. Great job, Helen. You are a true LEGO master.
