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!
