If you are pretty good at building model things, then you could easily build your own 35mm film DSLR in about 20 mins with the Lomography Konstruktor kit. You get to assemble the lens, film cartridge, spools, optical waist-level viewfinder and housing. The video shows the use of lots of tiny screws, so you’ve been forewarned (and I hope they include extra screws in the kit). Once completed, you get to decorate it to your taste (and Lomography should run a contest). The Konstruktor will take pictures and its simplicity might just free you from the tyranny of modern technology. Perfect gift for a photographer dad who also likes to build things? Happy Father’s Day!
