3D Printed Camera

The photographer Paul Kolchausen, unable to buy all the photos of his dream machines, did something unusual. He printed an 3D camera by imparting some of the remarkable features of his dream machines.


Ο Kolhausen created a fully functional 6 × 14 camera medium format, and without having any previous CAD experience. Designed the camera according to what he knows as a professional photographer and printed it on an 3D printer, based on a modular design, consisting of 8 separate pieces.

He named his camera PK-6142016, but it seems in the end prevailed the nickname of "The Mustard Cycloptic Monster".

The photographer combined some of the features of Mamiya 7, Hasselblad XPan and Leica M Series. At the front of the PK-6142016 he placed a Schneider Kreuznach 90 mm lens. The machine parts are 3D printed using SLS nylon using the 3D Hubs service.

Colchusen's camera pulls 6 × 14 photos on 120 medium format film. It does not have a focusing mechanism, and it's always in infinity, unless you place a ring on the camera to move the focal plane closer to the lens.

Of course Colchusen aims to turn his creation into an affordable 6 × 14 medium format camera for the general public.
