A few days ago, we gave you a glimpse of what photography and tech websites are saying about the newly-launched Konstruktor, Lomography's latest analogue offering. If you're itching to find out more about these first impressions and insight, we have some more for you to check out!
Lomography, the purveyor of funky-but-usable analog film cameras, introduced the “world’s first 35mm do-it-yourself camera,” called the Konstruktor. As both the name and claim suggest, it’s a plastic SLR camera you build yourself.
This isn’t just a cool gift to your favorite tech blogger either (although I know you want to say thanks for all the bad puns over the years). It is also the perfect gift for a kid, who can learn a little bit more about light and optics than she’ll learn by using her iPhone camera.
If someone asked us to build a camera, we wouldn’t know where to start. With The Konstruktor from Lomography it’s actually quite simple.
Elevating analog love to a whole new level, The Konstruktor takes an estimated one to two hours to build and by construction’s end, you have a fully working SLR camera that you can say you know from the inside out. Putting the pieces together may seem daunting at first, but an easy step-by-step video and tutorial, as well as an included screwdriver(!), can help you conquer your DIY doubts.
The Konstruktor is not that 35mm pinhole kit you usually buy on eBay, but a full fledged SLR camera with an interchangeable lens system and a top-down viewfinder to see what you shoot and to focus. And more accessories in the pipeline.
If you missed it, you can also head over to What tech and gadget websites are saying about the newly-launched Konstruktor to find out what websites like Engadget, PetaPixel, and Hypebeast think about Lomography’s newest camera!
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.
