Thread: Ikea camera hack

    Ikea camera hack

    There's a DIY subculture called Ikea hacking...taking stuff from Ikea and using it for other purposes.

    Here's a nice looking LF pinhole made from a plant holder. There's a link to the photog's gallery at the bottom.

    I like the guitar, too: http://ikeahacker.blogspot.com/2007/...gain-zach.html

    Yeah, there was just an article on it in the New York Times.

    You can make a pinhole camera out of any enclosed, light-tight space. A room, a 35mm camera cannister...Why the heck would the NY Times find this newsworthy?

    The Times probably found it noteworthy not because someone made a pinhole camera, but because they wanted to report on the social aspects of Ikea hacks. I thought it might be of general interest.

    I think it's really cool. The guitar is pretty special, too. The purists are sure giving him a bad time over that one, though. I commend the Times on reporting on something other than war and politics.

    The times was more interested in the "IKEA DIY subculture" than the photography aspect (although there was one picture of a guy with a homemade box camera).
