Here’s a sharp looking papercraft pinhole camera you can download, cut, and build. It’s a design that was published in a 1979 issue of “ABC mladých techniků a přírodovědců” (“An ABC of Young Technicians and Natural Scientists”) and translated for digital download by the Linatree photo printer and virtual gallery.

DIY iSight Tripod Mount

Isight I was just making one of these when MAKE pal Steve sent this in! – “Well, as you may know I like to shoot a timelapse video now and then… I’ve been using an earlier version of this iSight tripod mount for about a year, so today I thought I’d share the new and improved version: It consists of a couple of pieces of hardwood braced at a 90 degree angle… I have one piece of wood with two holes in it (the mounting plate), and then a piece of wood that is 90 degrees to the mounting plate for the iSight bracket to grab on to, and then two triangles (with the corners cut off)… “ Link.

Seeing that we use a lot of iSights here, maybe this would be helpful for Carlo — and others :-)
