Using wood on cameras isn't a new thing. Perhaps you've seen a lot of camera projects involving woodworking and we can't blame you for that. It's not about the quantity of the cameras you should probably look at but rather their quality. Dora Goodman and her cameras have been getting quite the attention due to their natural beauty and overall aesthetic. Wood, brass/gold detailing, steampunk looks -- where do we sign up?

Dora is a creative. Now that we have that out of the way, it's easy to see where she's coming from when it comes to putting out high-quality work. She likes to work on things, she loves the feel of creating things using her own hands. The attention to detail that her custom cameras have are proof of that. Each piece is a labor of love. Whether it's wood plating, handmade camera cords and straps, or from-the-bottom-up total constructions, Dora pours time, effort, and creativity into every one of them. That alone deserves a round of applause and not to mention camera nerds and collectors' affection.
