    This is fantastic, thanks so much. I could do without the music. I mean, could we observe nature as it is, without ascribing any quality, in this case sound? Thanks again. Best wishes.

    • Ya i feel the same way i wish it was just the sounds of the lake

  • Teshka

    I have seen a few murmurations and this is brilliant. Must have been a really special moment.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
