Ondu – working art

I love photography and I love my digital cameras. I also love my little kit built Recesky 35mm TLR and quirky things.  So, it’s no surprise that I was smitten by the beautiful looking wooden pinhole cameras designed and built in Slovenia by Elvis, Beni and various family members and friends, with the intriguing name of ONDU.

Many months ago I backed this project on Kickstarter and have been eagerly following the trials and tribulations of the team as they sourced the wood, imported technical equipment, installed machinery, broke machinery, repaired machinery and finally produced and shipped their wonderful products. My two ONDU cameras (the 135 and 6 x 6 versions) arrived a few days ago and I have to say they are everything that I expected, and more!

Eat your heart out Apple – these cameras are a work of art: Organic, tactile and just plain wooderful to look at (intentional mis-spelling!). They even come with cloth carry bags stitched by the boys’ mum!


I have ordered my 120 film and 35mm film and am now looking forward to field testing these beauties over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

  1. Thank you! It was a really long wait for these but I am pleased with how they feel and look. I should be able to start on the 35mm one this weekend so I am looking forward to experimenting again!
