Paul Kohlhaussen, a Richmond student, decided to create a fully-functional 3D-printed camera, when he realized his dream cameras were way out of his budget.

This custom-built creation combines the features of the Mamiya 7 (medium format photography), Hasselblad XPan (panoramas), and last, but not least, the Leica M Series. What he ended up with, is the "Cycloptic Mustard Monster," which is designed to shoot 6 x 14 negatives on 120 film, and features an 8-part modular design that easily pairs with camera gear.
