Original Pin: The Customizable Pinhole Camera Kit

Pinhole cameras are fun and fascinating tools (and toys) for anyone interested in photography. And Kickstarter has been the source of some fantastic new pinhole designs. Last year, we saw the awesome Pop-up Pinhole Project. And now comes Original Pin, the pinhole camera kit that’s also a 3D puzzle.

Backers of the project get a kit of laser-cut wooden pieces they can use to build a sturdy, and fully-functional 35mm pinhole camera, “that won’t crush in your backpack, or melt in the rain, like cardboard.”

Parts can also be mixed and matched to create a unique design that’s yours alone.

For more on the Original Pin project, check out Kickstarter and the video below.
