Just because photographers are locked down indoors, doesn't mean they can't be creative – in fact, it's forcing them to express their photographic creativity in all new ways. Case in point: Olympus has just released a printable papercraft template for a life-size camera and lens.

The downloadable template enables you to print and construct an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and Olympus 14-42mm EZ Pancake lens, both at close to their actual dimensions (Olympus recommends printing on 8.5" x 11" paper "to get a feel for the size and portability" of the camera).
