Tell us something about yourself.
I am C.C., I started using film cameras in 2010. I am an editor. I like photography, movie, music and traveling around.
How did you find your Konstruktor experience?
After I tried the first roll of Konstruktor, I was shocked by the photo quality. It is nice and easy to use. It took me some time to get used to the camera viewer. Because the image is reversed, it’s a little difficult to do composition at first.
What do you like best about the Konstruktor?
The camera viewer. I can easily shoot low angle through the viewer. I can even put it on the floor and easily do the composition, no need to lie on the floor.
Share a funny or strange story while using/building the Konstruktor the camera.
I was taking one photo with the Konstruktor in a train. It was crowded. I put it on the door and used the B shutter. Everyone in the train behind me were looking at the camera. Their faces were the same and maybe they were thinking, “What’s that?!”
Any tips for the future Konstruktor user?
Do more doubles. Try the lower angle view. Use the B shutter to take night photos.
