Make yourself a camera!!

The design geniuses at FWIS have created a series of Pinhole Cameras for World Pinhole Camera Day. The greatest part is that the cameras are available at Corbis as downloadable PDF’s – so you just print them off your printer, and assemble your very own, functioning, pinhole camera!!!

Did I mention they look stunning?

Take a look at the four other cameras after the jump!

Go make yourself a camera!

I found this over at the amazing Mint blog.

    i’m all for crafts that are useful and thought to myself, maybe i’ll try this out….and then i went to the site. i don’t think i can do it. will you be making one? because really, how could you tell us to and then not make one yourself? so i’d like to see some pics of it on here soon. i’ll need some inspiration. :)

    Yeah, Jeff. Take pictures using the pinhole camera you build of a mass manufactured digital camera

    what does that even mean?

    bec, i think that first one with the explosions is the hardest one to make – i’ll take a look at the pdf’s but from what i can see this other little red guy is alot simpler
