Emma Watson has revealed she had a disaster when she attempted to capture the last instalment of the Harry Potter franchise for posterity.

The actress turned her hand to photography to document the making of the film finale, but she was crushed when her hard work was later wiped out in a dark room.

She said, according to Empire magazine: "I wandered into a second-hand camera shop, and this very nice gentleman persuaded me I needed an old black-and-white film camera. I realised I hadn't taken any photos of the last 10 years, so this time I've been bugging everyone."

She added: "Takes me about 10 minutes to take one because I have to work out the aperture, the shutter speed, the focus and everything. But the girl who was helping me develop the film accidentally turned on the lights in the dark room and wiped everything.

"I couldn't talk for about three days. I was devastated. Forget the arty cool effect of using old film cameras. It's absolute b******s. Digital cameras and Photoshop are the way to go."
