It seems as though everyone is a photographer these days, but not everyone has built their own camera. It's time for you to change that with the Konstruktor DIY SLR Camera by Lomography. Much more fulfilling than mindlessly thumbing a retro filter on the latest camera app and no need to add a zillion hashtags to every photo (you know who you are).
The kit contains everything you need to create and personalise your own 35mm film SLR camera, a bit like a model aeroplane kit, including sticky backed leather patches and a vinyl sticker sheet to truly make the Konstruktor your own. The instructions are miles clearer than a Scandinavian furniture manual and within one to two hours you will have built something worth building - without any swearing, wonky shelves or nails stuck in your arm.
All you have to do then is go and use the sexy thing. Snap, snap, snap. You're so old school and analogue it's frightening!

What an amazing little camera. It really is simple to build with videos on the official website if you get stuck! I have taken sooo many pics already and it is a bit strange not being able to see my pictures right away but is fun waiting to see how they all turned out. I thought it would be difficult to find film but almost all supermarkets have it. I recommend this little camera for a laugh! Graeme Martin, Glasgow - 4th August 2013
Was skeptical at first but am truly amazed with the quality of photos. Plus it was really fun to assemble and super easy to use. Definite WIN for Lomography with this product. Excellent value for money. I'm definitely getting lots to give out as xmas presents. :). Melissa, London - 23rd July 2013
