You no longer need to pop to the shops to buy your camera equipment – or even buy them online and wait for them to ship. Now you can simply print your cameras in the comfort of your own home! Dora Goodman, the Founder of Goodman Camera, has created a business out of selling 3D printed customizable medium format film cameras – and she even gives the open source files for free if customers have their own 3D printer!

Dora Goodman uses 3D printing to produce various types of medium format film cameras, such as pinhole cameras and one that shoots with RB67 film holders and Mamiyah lenses. Medium format cameras tend to be quite expensive when compared to other formats, but Goodman and her team have aimed to produce a more affordable option with plenty of customization opportunities.
