Summer is around the corner, and while we love any excuse to take pictures, the hot weather is prime photography season.

If you’re also yearning for a new art toy, take a gander at the new models we’ve rounded up, from pretty Polaroids and wacky Lomography cams to homemade pinhole models and DIY designs you can assemble yourself.
