DIY TLR Recesky

I was so happy to see this deal on CashCashPinoy:


In various online camera shops, I’ve been looking at photos of and by this DIY twin lens reflex camera – the Recesky. It was, in fact, in my 2010 Christmas wishlist along with a Fuji Instax and a Polaroid printer. And yes, at PhP799, it’s the cheapest deal I’ve seen so far.

Why DIY?



It’s delivered in a box, unassembled. So there’s the thrill of building it from the million plastic parts. Smile 

Once built, slap on a roll of film, and then wait. Wait until you get the 24 or 36 shots, and wait again until the film is processed before you can finally see the fruits of your labor. Smile 

The deal is still available on CashCashPinoy. They have 3-days priority shipping (free) from the date of payment confirmation. What are you waiting for?

Edit: I received the box a few minutes after publishing this post. The next day, Alfred worked on putting the camera together. He couldn’t sleep until he finished. With this, and putting together the Lego Ferrari, he’s becoming more and more interested in DIY projects, at least those that don’t take too much time and effort. I wonder if he’d be interested in beer making kits too? Winking smile
