Camera Make/Mod by [BLANK_NAME], Blue

January 12th, 2008 8:19 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Modify or create a camera.




Part I








P1050797.gif
Re-releaased on the Praxis due to a significant update

This is by no means a complex camera modification.
I merely taped a concave lens to the front of my Action SamplerTM (In case you were wondering an Action Sampler is a cheap plastic camera with four lenses that neatly devide a second into 4 different pictures. "More than a photograph and not quite a movie, you've got a permanent documentation of a snippet taken from your very own existence.")

This modification effictively made the focus point of the lens about 6.5 inches from the lens and severely limited the depth of field. This is the first roll of film I shot with the camera. Just to spice things up I threw in a couple of double exposures. Enjoy… (View as a Flickr Slideshow)

I'm a genious Aye!



I drilled a hole through the body cap on my 20d. Effectively converting this award-winning CMOS technology rugged magnesium alloy with Stroboframe bracket into a digital pinhole camera.

The most genius part about its design is that when I use the camera the chip, the latest EMOS light sensing technology(when it was released), becomes a magnet for any and all dust. As a game try added up the ever increasing dust spots in every frame.

Eventually it crossed my mind to attach a filter to the body cap with some beautifull yellow tape so as to prevent this.

@help im a bear: Basically he removed any real lens and replaced it with a cover and a single pin hole. The light is focused by the size of the hole and the distance of the hole from the light-sensor (in a film camera that would be the film). The pictures you see that he took were not made with any lens other than that little hole, and they have a very specific look, not easily made in any other way. To do this with a tin can and some film is one thing, but to figure out how to do this with a digital camera... totally cool.

Yeah, that is very very awesome. Does that mean you also made pinholes in the action sampler? or have you got some other mindbending trick planned for that?
