DIY Laser-Cut Camera Snaps Artsy Photos
July 8th, 2011
Have you ever thought about making your own camera? Well the KDS-POTO2 camera by Kit Man from Kit Da Studio definitely looks like it will do the job. It’s a fully functional camera, and kind of reminds me of those Lomo camera kits that I’ve seen in the past.
The camera itself is assembled from laser-cut acrylic parts and scavenged lenses, and yes, it really takes pictures. The resulting abstract photos it captures are reminiscent of DIY pinhole and Lomo cameras. If you want one for yourself, Kit Man is providing an AI template file so that you can cut your own camera.
I wish I had easy access to a laser cutter to get mine started. The whole assembly process looks interesting, but you’ll need to be precise and meticulous.
