How do you buy a gift for the photographer on your list if you don't know a Holga from a hole in the ground? Nothing says you have to stuff your shutterbugs stocking with film or lenses. Why not take a more tongue in cheek approach with a camera that does not take a single picture but gets you clean in the bath or makes for a yummy snack.
