A designer from Texas has created a 3D printed pinhole camera.

The camera, called the Flyer 6x6, can either be ordered already made, or users can print their own camera using STL files and printing instructions. The Flyer takes 6cm x 6cm square photos, and there are 12 exposures to a roll of 120 film. It can be loaded and used in less than 30 seconds out of the box.

The project is currently on Kickstarter, and designer Clint O'Connor asked for backing to finalise the design and printability of the Flyer. He has also created film and processing exposure tables and reference photos, and is hoping to develop additional 3D printed cameras.

The project reached its initial funding goal in just 13.5 hours, and there are still 27 days to go. Clint has now introduced a stretch goal. If the project reaches $2600, all kits and camera rewards will also include a neutral density filter.
