Build Your Very Own Compact 35mm SLR Camera

Be a true Lomographer and analog enthusiast by not only shooting with film, but by building your own SLR! Get your hands on the Konstruktor and after some clicks and screws, you'll have your own fully-working 35mm camera ready to capture knock-out analog photos! The Konstruktor has a top-down viewfinder to see what you shoot and to focus as well as a multiple exposure function, bulb setting for long exposures and a detachable 50mm f/10 Lens for even more experimenting.

Konstrukt Your Creativity
The Konstruktor is the perfect gift for DIY lovers-fun to build, easy to use and fully customizable. Each kit includes a set of colorful covers and stickers to give an even more personal touch to your analog construction!

Explore the Mechanics of Analog Photography
The Konstruktor gives you the chance to learn more about the inner workings of an analog camera as you put your own together piece by piece. You'll be equally rewarded with impressively sharp shots on regular 35mm film. Stay tuned for more options to further customize the Konstruktor as we have more interchangeable Lomography lenses and accessories planned!
