Learn The Mechanics
In the digital world in which we take the complexity behind inventions for granted, there is something deceptively simple about an analogue camera. But how exactly does a film camera work? How are you capable of capturing an image on a film roll by simply clicking a button? What are the inner workings which make this possible?
The Konstruktor F allows you to demystify the process of analogue photography by building your camera from the ground up. In constructing it, you’ll begin to understand the intricate mechanics behind the analogue photos you shoot and have a ton of fun in the process. Building the Konstruktor F is very easy; it can usually be completed in 1-2 hours and, by the end, you’ll have a fully working SLR camera in your hands!
A New Creative Toolbox
The Konstruktor F is a bundle of tricks indeed. Once you have finished building your camera, you’ll be in possession of an awesomely simple yet tremendously clever photographic contraption. Firstly, the Konstruktor is equipped with ‘N’ and ‘B’ mode for regular and long exposures; of course, it has a tripod thread for keeping those long exposures steady. It is also equipped with an uncoupled shutter release and advance, so you can easily produce multiple exposure photos. To shoot flash photos, you can purchase Konstruktor Flash Accessory Kit and a Lomography Flash of your choice.
See What You Shoot
The Konstruktor F is Lomography’s very first SLR camera. SLR stands for ‘Single Lens Reflex’; with this type of camera, it’s possible to focus and view exactly what you shoot. All you have to do is look through the top-down viewfinder and focus using the ring on the lens. The viewfinder also has a handy magnifier so you can get a better view of what you’re shooting.
Customize Your Creation
Once you’ve finished building the Konstruktor F, it’s time to decorate! The camera comes packed with a selection of stickers that you can attach. Bored of your current camera look? Just peel off the stickers and try a different set. Of course, in true Lomographic spirit you can also decide to forget the rules and decorate your Konstrucktor F in a totally unique style!
