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.
Jan Schoenwiesner shot Visual Music, his graduate film, with a DV camera and a homemade 35mm lens adapter! This is what I’m talkin about! So what you don’t have Canon 5D MKII! You might not even have a DV camera! My friend Ryan made a fisheye lens for his point & shoot using a peephole from Home Depot! Quit moping around because you don’t have the latest equipment – just go out and make it happen – get creative with what you got!
