Ikea’s released the manual for that cardboard digital camera!
It’s called the KNÄPPA.
I would totally buy one of these.
It doesn’t sound like they’ll be sold (they were giveaways at a show in Milan), but there’s always eBay.
Does this make you as starry-eyed as it does us?
Just about. It’s a funny thing, nowadays I would be torn between seeing a vintage Graflex flash handle as the basis for a rad lightsaber, and seeing it as a beautiful piece of photographic history.
To have such a problem!

Tiffany made this neato stop-motion of her building the camera.
I really want to pick one of these things up. They’re so cheap, too!
Of this well-known photograph of sunlight streaming into New York’s Grand Central Station as commuters make their way across the concourse, Stalman says:
The lesson is that this is something you can see anywhere — when you wake up in the morning, or walking down a hallway in a museum, or just working in a backyard shed. Everything that the light is hitting here is being lit up. So you don’t always have to think of your subject as being lit. Sometimes the light itself can be the subject. After all, none of the people here are doing much at all, they’re kind of just acting as background. It’s all about the light, the light, the light.
Photo tip #2: Light Can Be Your Subject, Not Just a Tool
Wellllll, technically it’s dust particles floating through the air that are the subject here. But that’s not the point, is it?
More importantly… I’LL BE THERE IN A WEEK! I can’t wait!
This photo was made to be seen with 3-D glasses, but we think it looks pretty rad as it is!

Cute, but it’s apparent this was composited after the fact, because the plane of the ground angles the wrong way! The horizon appears to be near, and the edge at the bottom of the photo is far away. Also, the clouds appear to be on a flat plane “ceiling,” without any verticality to them, and the giraffes are not 3-D at all.

Pentax announced the Q today, making it the world’s smallest interchangeable lens digital camera.
The sensor isn’t as big as a micro four thirds camera, but you still get to play with lenses.
p.s. Photojojo’s hiring!!! Both in & outside of SF. Web developers, photographer, store buyer, and freelance writers.
Definitely want! Hipstamatic got me hooked on playing with different lenses, though I know it’s not the same, and real lenses are not $.99 a pop.
A Lego Leica!
