    Print your own camera with your 3D printer? Or, buy a camera from the "project" that they make with a 3D printer?? Still, it is an interesting idea and the test photos on the website look good.

    They seem to have done the fundamental work, but I couldn't figure out how they intend to sell the camera . . .as a printable file, as a complete camera like the wanderlust folks . . .or just what.

    The fact that they are in Slovakia is a flag for me.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I can't see it as coming in any cheaper than a Wanderlust.

    If we bought a file and printed locally, I am sure that would be more than the $100 we KSer's paid and likely exceed the current price of $150.

    It's a great idea, coming into an already saturated market.

    But who knows, when Wanderlust is sold out and discontinued, they may have created a demand for this type of camera.

    The advantage of the Wanderlust is it designed for cheaper and more numerous lenses.

    Unless I'm missing something here, the point of this camera seems to be that it's thin enough that you will be able to put just about any lens you want on it with the appropriate lens board/cone, no limitations at all. What's probably missing is a cheap focus helicoid, though you can buy one of those for $100 on Ebay, and be set for anything. My objective someday is to have a 47mm XL SA on a body like this one.

    Me, I'm going to hold on an opinion on what it will cost to print it until someone actually KNOWS how much it costs to print it. :-)

    Based on what I see on their site and doing some quick calculations of part sizes, that would about $700 to $1000 worth of parts on our rapid prototype machines. Where you are in that range depending on how good you wanted them to look and how robust you wanted them to be.
