I’ve always wanted to build my own camera. In fact, I bought a 3d printer at the start of 2020 with that intention. While that particular project is ongoing I decided to do something a little easier.
I spotted the Haynes Classic Camera kit in Waterstones while Christmas shopping, and managed to persuade my wife to get it for me as something to keep me busy on Christmas Eve. Although I didn’t get a chance to build it then, I did put it together one evening before the New Year.
