Hipsters Rejoice! A Build-It-Yourself Plastic Camera
There’s no denying the growing popularity of Lomo photography in recent years – especially if you’ve ever visited an Urban Outfitters. The motto for Lomography is, “Don’t Think, Just Shoot,” – which is kind of ironic considering their newest offering requires quite a bit of thinking. The Konstruktor is a $35 build-it-yourself camera that should give hipsters a better understanding as to how their ‘antique Instagram machine’ actually works.
The Konstruktor takes one to two hours to assemble – depending on how many of the included stickers you add to your camera.
Lomographic cameras are inherently designed to produced images with “oversaturated colors, extreme optical distortions, rainbow-colored subjects, off-kilter exposure, blurring and alternative film processing, all things usually considered bad in photography.”
