Blinky Is One Cute DIY Pinhole Camera

If you have not noticed DIYP is big on semi-made/semi-DIY photography projects. And we are also big on pinhole. This is why we absolutely love this Pinhole/DIY/Camera project.

The Blinky is a self-assemble DIY Pinhole lens made from cardboard. Similarly to the Paper Fold Pinhole, the film chamber is kept shut with a rubber band. (Did I say this kit is genius yet?) and the film is wound with a wooden peg.

The Blinky site does not say how much each kit costs, but they provide a mail for contact.

Interestingly enough, the kit is a love child of two designers countries apart – UK and France. Here is how they introduce the project

“Hej/Hello/Bonjour! We are Liv and Léa.

We are from the UK and France.  We met while both on exchange at HDK, Göteborg, studying Design.

We have put a lot of effort in creating Blinky, our first
collaborative project together. It’s been a lot of fun designing a ’
build it yourself ’ camera, and now we both know a little more about how
they work too.

We have drunk a lot of tea in the process and a little wine at points.
