crafted out of laser cut birch plywood, portland-based photographer and engineering student kevin kadooka has designed a twin-lens reflex camera. the set-up uses a mamiya-sekor 105mm f/3.5 chrome lens and incorporates a rotatable polaroid back for shooting 4.25 x 3.5 inch instant film. still untitled, the project utilizes a folding wrist level view finder with an aluminized front-surface mirror for ultra-fine ground glass compositions, that can be focused with a custom nylon rack and pinion on stainless shoulder screws.
