Lomography Konstruktor DIY Camera Kit

Call us luddites if you want, but we appreciate few things more than completely disconnecting and doing something with our hands. The Lomography Konstruktor DIY Camera Kit ($35) contains everything you need to build a fully-functional 35mm camera (yes that precludes posting to Instagram) from scratch, combining our passion for the maker mentality with our love for photography. In only about thirty minutes, you can build your own plastic analog camera, customize it with decals, load it with film, and start shooting. Then all you need to do is find somewhere that actually still processes the stuff.

  • Brinno HDR TIme Lapse Camera

    Sure, you can make time lapse videos using just about any camera — but if it doesn't have a built-in intervalometer, you might end up clicking the camera button yourself, and in any case you're going to spend some time converting those stills into a video. Or you could just use the Brinno HDR TIme Lapse Camera ($400). Made specifically for the task, the Brinno features a 1.3 megapixel HDR image sensor that it uses to produce 720p time lapse video, with the ability to set the interval between frames from 0.3 seconds to 24 hours. It also features a CS lens mount, so you can swap out the included 14 mm f/2.0 lens for a wide range of glass. Once it's done shooting, all you need to do is pop out the SD card, pop it into your computer, and enjoy the video that's already been assembled.

  • Olympus PEN E-P5 Camera

    The company claims that "the only thing about it that's retro is its looks", and we tend to agree. Inside the classy, compact silver, white, or black metal body of the Olympus PEN E-P5 Camera ($1,000-$1,450) lies an advanced 16 megapixel TruePic VI Live MOS sensor that pairs with Micro Four Thirds lenses to become a formidable shooter. Features include fast Super Spot AF, a 5-axis image stabilization system, dual control dials, built-in Wi-Fi, a mechanical shutter capable of 1/8000th of a second shooting, 1080/30p video recording, and a sharp, tilting 3-inch touchscreen monitor. Coming later this month by itself, or in a kit with a 17mm f/1.8 lens and electronic viewfinder.
