A blogging by-product has been this concerted effort to improve my photography and produce better visuals for Wottoncool. Transitioning from a point-and-shoot in 2009 to a semi-pro, to a DSLR and then, most recently, upgrading my lens. And with it, learning the lingo about apertures, bokehs, ISOs etc. Not that all the technical specifications make the most sense, but when Lomography released a new 35mm build-your-own single-lens reflex camera, that certainly had my interest piqued.
The Konstruktor is described as a world’s first do-it-yourself camera, allowing you to explore the mechanics, understand and experience the essence of photography from inside out. It has a top-down viewfinder and accessory packs for add-ons for long exposures or a detachable 50mm lens.
The camera comes craftily packaged in an assembly kit set. Set aside S$58 and 1-2 hours of construction time. I think Lomography is clever to charge you S$58 AND have you assemble to camera too!
