Christmas in . . . January?

Yesterday the mailman brought me two packages which both serve to highlight the wonders of film photography in the Internet age.

On the right is my ONDU 35mm pinhole camera. Funded by Kickstarter and produced in Slovenia, it's a simple wooden thing of beauty. Initial reports from other ONDU owners have been favorable, and I cannot wait to try it out.

On the left is a bag of plastic parts. Black ABS is not especially beautiful, but what it represents is incredible. This is the P6*6, a 3D printed pinhole camera. I read about it on Twitter and purchased it from the creator. I hope to assemble it this week.

Two cameras from opposite ends of the technological spectrum, both produced by enthusiasts in their respective fields, both brought directly to my doorstep from opposite sides of the world. Modern life can be amazing.
