The Lux: A DIY 3D Printed TLR

Who could have imagined that we'd have the technological know-how to print a working, non-pinhole camera? Let us introduce you to the Lux, a fully functioning 120 TLR!

3D printers have been all the rage lately, and with good reason. There’s practically no limit to the amount of things you can do with one! All you need is a vision, and lots of trial and error. In this case, we have Kevin Kadooka who slaved away to create something special.

Kadooka recently unveiled The Lux, a 100% open source project, so that men with similar minds can put better improvements and modifications. If you have a 3D printer or have access to one, why don’t you try making your very own TLR?
