LIGHT AND POWERFUL

Using 3D printing technology has given us the ability to design a camera that is not only lightweight, but also a very effective photography tool. While maintaining the minimalist approach of pinhole photography, the combination of a laser-drilled pinhole plate and a magnet-powered shutter allows for optimal precision and ease-of-use. A curved film plane results in distortion-free images as the film is approximately always the same distance from the pinhole, likewise resulting in very little to no vignetting in the corners.

The SCURA was designed to eliminate the frustration of guesswork, and offer an overall sophisticated experience, affording you the peace-of-mind needed to unleash your full creative potential. For those who are more hands-on and enjoy tinkering, the fully-equipped DIY kit offered through our online store is a great option that gives you the satisfaction of building your own camera while preserving image quality.

The sense of wonder that we all experienced as children from sitting down and getting our hands dirty, building anything that our imaginations could dream up, is still alive deep within each of us.

Every DIY kit comes complete with all the tools you need to reduce the hassle of sourcing your own materials, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the ride.

If you have access to a 3D printer, our files are accessible for free through the GoodLab, should you wish to build your own camera from scratch. And for those who might feel intimidated at the thought of building a camera, or who simply don’t have the time, we also offer conveniently pre-assembled versions available in our shop.

WHAT MAKES THE SCURA SPECIAL

LASER DRILLED PINHOLE

The cornerstone of a pinhole camera is a precisely drilled perforation; it must be perfectly round and exactly the right size in order to achieve the best image quality possible.  Functioning on a high frequency and low energy beam, the laser-drilling technology we use results in a flawlessly even and smooth cut.

CURVED DESIGN

Separating the SCURA from most other pinhole cameras is its specially designed curved back, allowing light to reach the film evenly which results in beautiful distortion-free images from edge to edge.  Additionally, the framing in the 35mm model has been widened for a panoramic field of view.

MAGNET POWERED SHUTTER

Pinhole cameras are often quite simple with very few moving parts.  Our biggest challenge was to create a shutter that had smooth movements for precise control over the exposure and after testing several prototypes, we determined that by using magnetic force we could achieve just that.
