perfect for those interested in learning, understanding and experiencing how analogue photography works, lomography has created the world’s first fully functional DIY 35mm SLR camera kit. known as the ‘konstruktor’, the un-assembled photography device is designed to be easily built at the comfort of ones home;  it can usually be completed in 1-2 hours. the ‘konstruktor’ is equipped with a detachable 50mm F/10 lens and ‘N’ and ‘B’ modes for regular and long exposures. in addition, the camera also features a tripod thread for stability and an uncoupled shutter release and advance, so users can easily produce multiple exposure photos with shutter speeds of 1/80s.
