“OpenReflex” Open Source 3D Printed Camera #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Check out Leo Marius incredible open source 3D printed camera project, “Open Reflex.” More photographs at his project site, model files on Thingiverse, and an Instructable for how to make it:
The OpenReflex is an Open-Source analog camera with a mirror Viewfinder and an awesome finger activated mechanic shutter (running ~ 1/60°s). What’s more, it’s compatible with any photographic lens with custom mount ring.
All the pieces easily printable on an recent RepRap-like ABS 3D-printer without using support material ! Everything should print in less than 15h and anyone should be able to assemble it within 1h.
All parts are separate ( Film receiver, Shutter and Viewfinder ) to simplify builds and modifications.
