Clipper 6x18, a Kickstarter stretch goal design, is the first ever 3D printed panoramic pinhole camera, and one of the very few 6x18 production cameras ever made with a curved backplane. Printed in black plastic, it is strong, robust, and light - perfect for professional, amateur, or educational use. This complete camera comes with a starter roll of film to get you going. If you have a 3D printer, you can print and make your own camera.
