AND PLANS

SCURA is a pinhole film camera with a special curved design that results in distortion-free shots.

We use laser drilled pinhole plates with microscopic accuracy, as well as a magnet powered shutter for maximum functionality. Due to a convenient experience, the camera makes the perfect gift for both beginners and professionals.

SCURA is available in two versions. A 35mm pinhole camera that shoots 60x25mm panoramic images, and a 6x6 version which works with 120 film. Choose your preferred model and order it in a DIY kit.  

LIGHT AND POWERFUL

When working on this camera, we have focused on combining the design and functionality of 3D printing, resulting in a minimalist approach to pinhole photography. 

Along the laser-drilled pinhole and the curved design, we have managed to achieve a distortion-free, yet amazing picture quality.

FUN AND EASY

Although assembling the camera is straightforward using the available online guides, it is designed to be an intriguing journey on the way.

The kit consists of all the necessary tools, equipment and elements, there is no need for further additional parts or purchases. 

 

On the other hand, the freely accessible open source package consists of all the necessary files and documentations you need to build your camera from scratch.

CUSTOMIZE

The SCURA kit comes with a self-adhesive stock skin, however you can freely customise your camera along our cut-out sheets and tutorial videos. 

Challenge yourself and share your results with us, as all our projects are inspired by the different approaches of our community.

LASER DRILLED PINHOLE

The cornerstone of pinhole cameras is the precisely drilled hole. The best picture quality can only be achieved if the hole is exactly the right size, and it’s perfectly round. The laser drilling technology we use works with a high frequency and low energy beam, resulting in a perfectly even and smooth cut.

CURVED DESIGN

In most pinhole cameras the film lies completely flat, which gives the pictures distorted edges. In case of the SCURA, however, the light reaches the film evenly, which results in distortion-free images. Furthermore, we increased the framing to obtain a beautiful panoramic field of view.

MAGNET POWERED SHUTTER

Pinhole cameras have very few and very simple moving parts. Still, our biggest challenge was to fine tune the feel of exposure. After several shutter prototypes, we chose to use magnets that give you a smooth yet precise control over the exposure.
