3D printing is all the craze lately, and why wouldn’t it be? The technology allows you to bring virtual designed objects to life, pushing creative potential into new realms. 3D designer Amos Dudley has recently utilised the technology to create ‘SLO’, his very own 35mm film camera.
The intention behind Dudley’s design is to extend the act of recording a moment to creating the recorder itself: “SLO is the speed of good design, and the feeling of capturing life with a camera you made yourself.”
Every part of the camera is 3D-printed, a process which he thoroughly documented on his blog. The result is a slick design that produces film photos with dreamy light leaks and moody grain.
Dudley is all about innovative self-design, where he previously used 3D printing to create his own clear braces instead of paying $8000 at the orthodontist. 3D printing… the possibilities are endless.
