Create your own digital camera at the Avant-Garde Art Space


Build your digital camera at Avant-Garde Art Space

Even though Instagram and TikTok reign supreme, film photography has had its moment lately. And they are often associated with artistic types. Now you can DIY your own digital cameras from scratch to Avant-garde art space at the Katong mall.

Not only will you have camera gear that you can truly call your own, but you can also score some cool indie film points. It’s time to have your main character moment like Juno Where Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Customize your own Paper Shoot Camera

The digital cameras in question are from a company called Paper shooting. They’re made from eco-friendly stone paper, so it’s also durable. We can’t think of a better canvas for your Van Gogh aspirations.

And no, the photos won’t look like they were taken on a potato. The camera produces 16 megapixel photos and even 10 second 1080p videos for your IG or TikToks stories. But that’s not all, there’s even a time lapse function for your sunset shots.

You don’t need to edit your photos on VSCO afterwards, because the cameras come with 4 different built-in filters you can choose from: B&W, sepia, blue and color.
