The Konstruktor Construction Rumble

14

Have you ordered your very own Konstruktor kit already? Before you get started going crazy with it, prop up your camera and maybe even your videocam first - we want to see your building process!

The Konstruktor is the world’s first Do-It-Yourself 35mm SLR camera, so it is only fitting that the community be part of history as well! We want to see you guys put your hard hat on, roll up your sleeves, and start constructing. Show us your best photos and/or videos detailing the assembly of your Konstruktor – from the unboxing up to the finished product.

After you’ve finished your Konstruktor and wiped the sweat off your brow, send in your article to User Blogs, and place the link on the comments below. The 5 best articles each get 20 Piggies for their hard work! Good luck and start konstrukting!

The Konstruktor is the world’s first Do-It-Yourself 35mm SLR camera. With it, you can easily build your very own camera from scratch. It’s the perfect tool for having fun whilst learning the exciting mechanics behind how analogue photography works. Get yours from the Online Shop or Lomography Gallery Stores Worldwide. Find out more about the camera on the Konstruktor Site.

    This is a little disappointing to me because I was going to make a video of me assembling my konstructor camera for another one of your competitions. This is a weird coincidence!

    Fourth of July Celebrations Throughout the Years

    On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.

    A Salute to the Masters: D-Day in Como? (A Tribute to Robert Capa)

    This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
