I agree. The assembly of the camera is quite impressive especially since the parts were made from a 3D printer. One feature that puzzles me is the touch panel. What functions does it allow the user of camera to perform? I'll read the writeup to see if that information is provided.

You're in the zone regarding the look and operation of this camera with a Kodak Instamatic device. It also reminds of a high tech spin on the old pin hole camera as well. Nice video!

Cadman-LT, there's been a lot of press about that recently. Clearly, it has to do with specific materials and temperatures, but I'd guess it may also have to do with performing what are industrial operations by inexperienced people in limited, probably unventilated spaces.

Anne, I know we always talk 3d printing so I wanted to mention this to you. Have you ever heard of people printing indoors and the fumes causing problems?

I am not sure. Is this like building an old kodak instant that spits out a photo? Like in the olden days...lol

madaeon, thanks for that info. I'm curious about the relative times for different methods like 3D printing and laser cutting.

Thanks for the hint about the feeder, i didn't think about the retate belt... The autofocus is made moving with a servo the paper plane, not the lens, that has no internal af and doesn't move.

I used a 3d printing and laser cutting making hub, so i can't give you the exact time needed, but based on earlier experience, 3d printed parts are small so i think 3-4 hours, and maybe the same for the laser cut.
