Thanks to Graham for supplying details for the second stage of this project (the lens)
Poor weather and boredom so a bit of fun.
Was going to try this with a crinkle cut CMOS chip but Mc Cains catering warned me off.

Start point print outs from materials supplied by Graham. I added a super control panel to the LCD before printing.

Second pattern supplied the 14 - 42 mm 1 : 3.5 - 5.6 Lens

I added a super control panel read out from my OMD E-M 1 to the screen before printing.

Great fun to make I used photo paper and super glue for this one, Pritt stick glue would not hold the gloss surface ( other glues are of course available)

Might make the other pattern OM lenses supplied by Graham. I will then have a good range of very lightweight kit.

Will have to design a paper OM to mOMD adapter to fit them or use double sided tape!

Graham and I may branch out into lightweight camera sales, offers welcome.


Comments welcome

Brilliant Ed.

You made a cracking job of that, I'm impressed.

Have you thought of applying for a job as a Blue Peter presenter?

The addition of the SCP is a very good idea. Well done.

I'm tempted to use one to "bait" security guards in London... :D

Thanks folks, Graham seems a plan for shopping centres also, that working all paper camera seems a real challenge! May take up the challenge.

Very similar but the control wheels on mine stick up a bit more.:D

I'm now producing screen protectors for anyone who wants one,

Also a lens hood as that is not supplied... :D

Nice one Alf I am told the pin hole is very important and some people make a bigger hole in the card then cover with foil and make the pin hole in it.

Graham lens caps are needed will you sort them out? The impossible to loose flash cover ( as used in this demo model) patent has come through.

... I added a super control panel to the LCD before printing...

You should have added simple guides so you could change the picture.

Or change them using sticky backed Velcro as suggested earlier?

Hi Ed -

All well and good but you haven't mentioned storage yet! *cameraicon

Check Graham's first post I did mention special bags are available for only 5 pence each from local supermarkets. If you are referring to digital image storage with this model is almost unlimited!
For this just cut a bit of CARD and write whatever size you want on it, just pull a fold open and drop the card in and away you go!

The use of re-positionable double sided sticky tape provides the facility of the camera being flat packed for storage. ;)

An A5 white envelope can be printed on to serve as a suitable storage bag. :cool:

Graham forgot to mention a brown envelope can be used if you are worried that white may be an obvious camera carrying envelope.
