The DIY Camera Kit is an attempt to use the Olympus Air with Paper Craft in a more fun way.
Here is what I most noticed when shooting with the Olympus Air. The camera, finder, and controls are all separate, so you can freely choose your own layout. I made use of that feature to create a kit that could be made into multiple, different types of camera.

Two of those types, the Instant Camera Style and the Twin Lens-like Style, were inspired by the film cameras of the past. You can create different photographic experiences by changing the way you look through the finder. 3D Stereoscope Style uses the Micro Four Thirds 3D lens to capture 3D objects as 3D photographs. And the simplest style is Canvas Style, which is based on linking with Ototo.

Linking the Olympus Air and Ototo makes for even more fun. Anything that can conduct an electric current can be turned into a shutter. For example you can connect it with a doorknob so that it takes a photo when the door opens!

The layout possibilities are really limitless. None of the kits requires electrical knowledge, so you can build and start using right away. If you have kids, it’s a great kit to give them some fun engineering challenges!
