See our fellow lomographers take on the Konstruktor challenge!

2013-07-03

Have you already ordered a Konstruktor for yourself and would like to find out what the build-your-own camera challenge entails? Some of our fellow lomographers have already gotten their hands on the kit and shared with us their experience. Come and take a look!

If your Konstruktor is on its way but you can’t wait to find out what the build-your-own camera experience will be like, we bring you some news from our fellow lomographers who have gotten their hands on their kits and took on the challenge. PopPhoto was among the first to share with us their Konstruktor experience — video included — but we know you’d also like to hear from our very own community members as well.

So, without further ado, we bring you the time lapse video shared by stratski on her blog post:

Here’s another from scarygami, which was also posted on his blog:

Once you get your Konstruktor Kit, you should definitely take a video of you taking on the challenge of building your own film SLR camera, blog about it (via your LomoHome blog), and share it on the ongoing Konstruktor Construction Rumble, like stratski and scarygami did! The 3 best articles each get 10 Piggies!

Did the first-hand accounts of our fellow lomographers get you excited? Share your thoughts — and even your own videos and stories — with a comment below!

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.

    Running Away From God: A Rumble with Astronautalis

    "The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album. We found that pretty inspiring, so we teamed up with him for a Rumble competition based on that idea.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
