DIY Dirkon Paper Camera
The story behind this paper camera is an interesting one dating back to the seventies. This site gives a brief synopsis of said history, and provides downloadable PDF templates which can be used to build your very own Dirkon camera out of paper.
The name Dirkon is a play on words based on the combination of the parts of two words: Dirk- is the beginning of the Czech word dírka – pinhole, and -kon is the end of the name of a well-known Japanese camera which needs no introduction.
For all you new-schoolers - sorry, no LCD viewfinder here.
