Banksy's CCTV Baby Mobile

Here’s a commentary by Banksy in terms of how much privacy we are afforded in our daily lives. Unfortunately, there is a lot of truth to this.

Sugru for Photographers

A while back we posted about Sugru, the bondable material that enables you to fix or customize anything you can think of. In the realm of photography, it can be used to create a custom grip for your camera, it can fix a broken tripod, or it can mount a camera to virtually any surface. They currently have a holiday special where if you buy 4 multipacks, you get the cheapest one free. Just use the following coupon code at the checkout: “YAYCHRISTMAS”. Offer good until December 19th.

Justin Olsen and his Chest Mounted Camera

While many people turn to GoPro cameras to film their extreme sporting, Justin Olsen wanted more. His customized solution was a vest that securely holds a DSLR at chest level. Not only is this a better vantage point when shooting while riding a bike, but it also allows him to capture high quality stills and video. I still think he is pretty gutsy however, as I would be afraid of falling while riding and wrecking the camera.

Vintage Cameras Turned into Night Lights

Jason Hull came up with an incredibly creative idea: turning vintage cameras into night lights. I like the fact that he is taking an unused item, and re purposing them. Don’t worry, Jason only uses cameras that are either in poor condition or ones that are not considered rare.

The Twin Lens DIY Camera

Do you love photography? Are you looking for a fulfilling project? If so, then you might want to get your hands on the Twin Lens camera kit. Not only will you feel proud because you built something, but you can reward yourself by taking some photographs. Hit the jump to see what it looks like fully assembled.

Aperture Glasses

There’s a tutorial over at instructables.com that shows you how to create glasses which have apertures for lenses. There’s even a PDF in which you can cut out all the pieces needed. Total construction time: 3 – 6 hours. Geeky, but still pretty neat.

DIY DSLR Viewfinder

Photojojo has a tutorial on how to create a viewfinder for your DSLR. While it’s admittedly pretty straight forward, this can actually be a very helpful accessory when you are shooting outdoors on a sunny day, and can’t see your viewfinder due to the glare.
