    More like "Three minutes on how to build a Polaroid camera."
    Everything looks easy when:
    A) you know how to do it,
    B) you speed up the process with stop-action video.

    No taking away from the amazing thing he has done, but the bellows alone is beyond many of us- and I've worked with my hands all my life!
