Product Description

Combining the fun of an airfix model with the art of photography, Find Me A Gift's Konstruktor DIY SLR Camera kit is a superb gift for teenagers or adults!In the days before digital photography, we actually used film in cameras and waited excitedly for up to 7 days for our photos to be developed before we could actually see what we had taken. Remember that? Well Konstruktor will slap your nostalgia senses one more time as you build your own camera, and create wonderful effects with full instructions. All you need is the 35mm film!It takes around 1 to 2 hours to create your special camera and the box even includes a little screwdriver AND stickers to personalise your creation. You can create Instagram style images the old fashioned way and relive the amazement of opening your envelope of pictures to see what awesome photos you have taken.The camera is easy to operate with a focus ring, a fixed aperture lens, shutter mode switch and shutter button. What a fantastic way to get into creative photography! It certainly makes a brilliant Christmas or Birthday gift for him or her!P1: The Konstruktor Kit lets you build your own SLR Camera : P2: It takes 35mm film (not included) and can be built in 1 to 2 hours : P3: Features a PC socket for flash photography : P4: Includes instructions, screwdriver, stickers and parts : P5: A great Birthday gift for teenagers and adults : Warning: Small parts, keep away from young children : Min Age: 14 Years

We have been constructing these cameras in a photography class. Some bits are a little fiddly, but the end product seems very solid and they seem to work (if only students would stop opening the back!) A great way to teach the parts of a camera.

I've just finished building one of these, so this review is about the experience of building it, rather than the quality of the pictures it takes. I had great fun building it, and it was really satisfying to build a working camera. Note the camera is a bit more limited than a typical, manual, 35mm SLR; see notes at the end of this review.

Personally I found it fairly straightforward to build. There’s the odd fiddly moment, and I had to sometimes study the manual quite carefully, but overall it was a fun experience. There’s only one bit I found really fiddly: there’s a tiny spring for the shutter button that’s tricky to fit. Happily they supply two of those, and also spare screws (which are also pretty small). The only tool you really need is supplied: a jewellers cross-head screwdriver. I also found a craft knife handy once or twice to trim plastic where the part hadn’t come cleanly out of the plastic frame that a lot of the parts come on. They stickers to put on the camera, including 3 different sets of leather-effect stickers to put on the case (red, white, black)

Overall, a really impressive and fun kit, particularly for the price. I can’t wait to run some film through it.

Here’s some notes on the camera you get; it's pretty basic, as you'd expect for a £30 DIY kit:

-It has a fixed aperture (f10) and shutter speed (1/80).
-It has a 50mm lens (no zoom), but it can be focussed. The lens has a bayonet fitting, so it can be removed easily. No filter thread.
-Winding on the film doesn't reset the shutter; you have to recock it yourself.

I got this item for a friend who is photography enthusiast. The item was very well packed in impressive and well thought box.
Clean instructions were included and good piece quality, As expected this works as a camera. Dont expect anything great but you will get a better understanding on how film cameras work. Great for present.

Build you own! Like the concept and this is at reasonable price. My son comments that the focus ring is a bit stiff, otherwise, it seems OK and looks cool as it is very different from any off the shelf camera you can buy.

My son was very pleased when he received this camera. It kept him occupied for a few hours to build, the tiny springs were a challenge. He enjoyed building it and now using it when he is out and about.

A friend bought me this for Christmas 2013, knowing that I am a keen photographer and collector of unusual cameras.

I am not the world's best engineer by any stretch, so it took me about three hours to build the camera - the upper estimate in the instructions. The instructions were very good, and I don't remember getting stuck for long with any step. I ended up with a functioning 35mm SLR camera and had fun building it.

Since then I've tried it with various films, from standard 200ASA colour print film to a range of B&W films. The plastic 50mm lens exhibits a bit of vingetting at the edges but is actually capable of producing quite sharp images. With colour film the "Lomo" effect from the lens results in retro looking images with slightly shifted colours. With B&W the camera is capable of producing quite sharp photos close up and dreamy landscapes.

It can be a little difficult to hold it still even with the 1/80s shutter speed. Winding can be a bit unreliable with non-standard distance between the frames causing issues for labs. I tend to scan colour negatives after having a lab process them, and hand process & scan B&W films myself.

The features are pretty basic, a 50mm f10 lens and shutter speed of 1/80s (or B) so you need a sunny day and/or a fast film. The waist level viewfinder means you can hold the camera at waist height for a slightly different view compared to most cameras and that will have an effect on your photos especially if you try street photography.

What you get is a basic but functioning 35mm SLR camera. I believe close-up lenses and a flash are available as accessories. There are some coloured stickers included to "customise" your camera after you've made it. Nearly two years on there's no sign of defects or of any light leaking into the film chamber. It's fun, and actually works. Better than the "Radionic build your own camera" kit I had as a child in the early 80s.

Well presented packaging and a great gift for any fan of 35mm film. The only thing worth bearing in mind is that it will almost certainly overlap frames, leak light and produce poor quality images, that being the selling point of the crazy world of Lomography! And ironically without them and their arty approach, 35mm film may have virtually disappeared altogether. Keep snapping.
