Photographers that have access to a 3D printer might be interested in a new project which has been published to the Thingverse website by member ApostleofColour, to create an awesome 3D printed Lux Camera.
As you can see from the image below the design is fairly complex and the Lux Camera consists of a number of different components which have all been combined to create an awesome modern recreation of the iconic classic.
My goal is to design and produce a fully-fledged camera, using easily purchased off-the-shelf components, without having to rely on anything pulled from a potentially valuable piece of equipment. A secondary goal is also to make this camera completely open source through rapid-prototyping techniques such as laser cutting and 3D printing, and the Arduino physical computing platform.
Type 6×6 Box Camera
Media 120 Roll Film
Objective 65mm f/5.6 Single Element, Coated
Viewfinder Waist-level Brilliant finder
Shutter Electromechanical single-leaf, 1/125-1s + B&T
Aperture Rotating diaphragm, f/5.6-32
Dimensions 7.9 x 9.4 x 11.7 cm
Construction SLS Polyamide (body), Stainless Steel (shutter, aperture)
