Electronic instant camera

Niklas writes

My ‘Electronic Instant Camera’, is a combination of an analog b/w videocamera and a thermal receipt printer. The device is something in between a Polaroid camera and a digital camera. The camera doesn’t store the pictures on film or digital medium, but prints a photo directly on a roll of cheap receipt paper while it is taking it. As this all happens very slow, people have to stay still for about three minutes until a full portrait photo is taken.

    Loved it!
    I’ve been toying withe the idea of buying one of those printers, I’d like to make something like this, but if I do, I’ll put an SD card or something for temporal storage so people don’t have to stay still 🙂

    PD: I had to cheat to pass the resistor reading “captcha” as I’m color blind… but I discovered that the “silver” color of the fourth band is a different color in the resistor (0xB4B4B4) and in the selector (0xB3B3B3), maybe you’d want to correct that 😛
