Antique Cameras Made into Night Lights

Minneapolis-based maker Manny from the Light and Time Art Etsy shop works a lot with vintage and antique cameras, converting many of them to mains-powered nightlights such as this 1950s/60s Kodak Brownie Starflash:

Original Kodak Brownie Starflash Camera – modified into an innovative working 120V nightlight.
This is a very distinctive camera with some signs of years of service.

This camera night light is a great present for the collector of antique memorabilia and retro artifacts, giving them a chance to display a real antique camera.

The incandescent light bulb at the flash center is a play on the bright flash that once came out of this vintage camera while it was in its prime.
