Priced at AU$53 (including GST), the Konstruktor kit takes between one and two hours to build. No paint or glue is required for construction. The kit includes a detachable 50mm f/10 lens and a tripod mount and supports a shutter speed of 1/80 second with multiple exposure capability. There’s also a Bulb setting for long exposures. Additional lenses are planned for future release.

The camera will be stocked in specialist outlets that sell analogue cameras.
