Clipper 6×18, a Kickstarter stretch goal design, is the first ever 3D printed panoramic pinhole camera, and one of the very few 6×18 production cameras ever made with a curved backplane. Printed in black ABS plastic, it is strong, robust, and light – perfect for professional or educational use. The complete camera comes with a starter roll of film, nicely wrapped in brown paper and green twine as a gift to yourself or someone else. If you have a 3D printer, you can print and make your own camera.

Editions

  • Current “A” model (“C” for Clipper on top and bottom) – past Flyer experience and user suggestions were applied during Clipper design, so the first production model has not changed.
