I agree w/ AGX, We all could get a nice 35 SLR for the asking price of the konstructor. I would wait awhile till the price comes down just like the other lomo DIY cameras that average $14.00 new in box, not the $35.
I bought one, it was fun to assemble, and actually works OK. I am surprised by the image quality and found that I was willing to snap the picture without worrying too much about the result. Lots of the shots came out much better than I expected. I am very happy with this one:
I really like the swirly background.
I have better cameras that I have paid less for and take them out much more often, but I still enjoy the camera. It is ripe for modifications.
First time posting an image here, let me know if there is a better way, I cant seem to find a guide...
Yeah, I spent $10 on my miranda F at the flea market, less than $2 on new seals and cleaning. I still get to use the wlf and have better image quality. Plus, it wont explode if i drop it. I'd rather have a 6x6 or bigger build it yourself camera.
I was thinking of building one of these Konstruktor cameras and I was wondering if I could adapt it to use a Leica bayonet to screw adaptor ring and thus use it with a 3.5 Elmar. Can anyone suggest how this could be done, if at all possible?
