Tyrannosaurus photoventris, ©2009, 6.75 inches high, Brass, plastic dinosaur, fabricated. Pinhole camera, uses paper film. The lens cap is on a ball chain. This camera takes photos of dinosaurs, mostly in the late Cretaceous. See photos of the late Cretaceous here, There is a little book of the first set of photos here,

Detail showing lens cap off. You can also barely see the pinhole inside the small opening. It's about .1mm.

The top lifts off the camera. Inside you can see the light-sensitive paper negative. I like to cut the paper long and curve it in the camera, causing interesting distortions and the image circle becomes visible on the left and right of the photo.
