DIY 35mm Pinhole Hasselblad Camera – download and make your own awesome camera


This DIY 35mm Pinhole Hasselblad Camera made out of cardboard is a work of genius, and the plans are soon to be available as a free download which can be printed out on any home printer and put together on your kitchen table. Or other suitable surface. What’s more the thing actually works.


Sure, you’ll have to sit there patiently for a while to allow the image to generate on the 35mm film stock, but look…it’s a Camera! It’s been lovingly crafted by UK designer Kely Angood, so say thank you when you see her next.

 I have developed my pinhole Hasselblad into a downloadable version that can be printed on any home printer and made using just the print-out and a few household items. The downloadable pinhole takes 35mm film and takes 12-14 images per roll.
