GrabCAD Lomography Camera Accessory Challenge Winners

7

Late last year, we partnered with GrabCAD for the Lomography Camera Accessory Challenge, a competition that encouraged creative minds to conceptualize accessories for the Konstruktor DIY camera. A do-it-yourself contest for making accessories dedicated to a do-it-yourself camera proved to be a fantastic idea.

There were over 50 entries, and we were able to narrow it down to 15 finalists for the three categories: lens, grip, and holder. The jury has made its final decision, and so without further ado, we present our winners for the GrabCAD Lomography Camera Accessory Challenge!

Lens Cap Category

5th Place

Lense cap by Dimitar

Interesting take for those that like a little lens cap surprise!

4th Place

Lens cap by Alexandria

We cannot put it in better words than Alexandria herself: “Looks easy, bright, unique. Sense of the idea: do not lose the lens cap, I mean, it remain on the lens”.

3rd Place

Lomography Konstruktor Pinhole Lens Cap by Alan

This pinhole design introduces overlapping tabs via a lever so that you can change the aperture as you please. Sure to be fun to use!

2nd Place

Lomography DIY filter kit by Ashleigh Adams

Filters are a mainstay in many a photographer’s arsenal and it is only right that the Konstruktor get some filter love as well.

1st Place

Lens Cap + Bokeh Filter + Pinhole by al dean

It’s almost heinous why this isn’t a thing yet. A lens cap that doubles as a pinhole and bokeh filter is a perfect accesory to suit your ever changing photographic moods.

Grip Category

5th Place

Grip for Konstruktor by Konrad Jakubiak

No more dropping your camera again with this comfortable grip accessory. That’s always a plus! And there is still a good sense of style, too.

4th Place

Simple single piece grip by Hari prasath

This design blew us away, as it’s something we’ve never seen before. Adding stability with the help of the wrist seems such a natural thing for a camera to have!

3rd Place

Konstruktor grip by Andy Nicholson

This is another impeccably designed accessory for the Konstruktor, offering 2 grips for 2 hands, making each shot stable as a rock.

2nd Place

The grip for the Konstruktor by Branko Stokuca

This design looks exquisite and extremely professional. Blurred photos will be a thing of the past with this accessory’s added stability.

1st Place

On-Hand Grip for Konstruktor by Chuma A

Having a camera to wear around like a watch, which would add support for long-ish exposures is a nice idea that’s worthy of exploring.

Holder Category

5th Place

LomoHolder by Imprenta3D

Shooting 3D images are usually 2 cameras side by side or one on top of the other. This particular accessory gives you the best of both worlds!

4th Place

Photo 3D - Lomography by Kevin

This design creates a different approach in shooting stereo images but you would need to manually trigger both cameras, though.

3rd Place

Lomography 3d holder by sam

Simple, but straight to the point. This no frills design is all about functionality and getting the job done.

2nd Place

3D photo rig concept1 by Jonathan

Shooting stereograms or 3D images with a Konstruktor will be a breeze with this rig, as it features a clever arm system that allows you to trigger both cameras simultaneously.

1st Place

Konstruktor attachment range by Brendan O'Connell

If you ever find yourself wanting to do a LomoMatrix style shoot by yourself, then this design is for you, as it combines clamps for secure side-by-side shooting and a remote that will trigger everything at the same time.

We also have a wild card winner: one that didn’t quite fit exactly into one category, but impressed us nonetheless with an such an innovative concept and impressive design.

First Place Wild Card Winner

Film Pack Rack by Tommy Mueller

No need to fumble around for film with this bad boy, as it will let you store up to 4 rolls of film at the base of your camera!

Thanks to everyone who joined the competition. You all did a great job!
