Have you ever thought about building your own camera? The thought came to mind a long time ago when I was in high school, but the difficulty was not only the cost but also the availability of the materials, also, 3D printers didn’t exist back then. Plus, with a fisherman as breadwinner, my family was poor.
Anyway, fast forward to the present, with the rise of the 3D printers and small computers, it is now possible. So, if you’re into photography and are looking for an interesting project, here are some I think you will like.
Unfortunately the other links to the Lux camera projects do not work anymore or requires you to install an extension. I am not willing to do that so, the only place I can link to is the makers Flickr account…
If don’t have access to a 3D printer, there are services available who will print the files for you like Shapeways.com
