New Box camera developments!

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





Cut outs ready for gluing





View of OMD EM10 Mk ii camera from front right




Camera from front left







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?

Re: New Box camera developments!

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

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

If you are feeling really adventurous then there is:

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

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.

Re: New Box camera developments!

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.

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