These are very high quality Camera Obscura, handbuilt with Walnut hardwood. We use dovetail joinery for its strength and beauty and to add to the overall quality of the piece. Each Camera Obscura has a tripod mounting screw, that can be attached to any standard tripod.
Our Camera Obscura is about a 6 inch (15.3cm) cube and only weighs 1.65lbs (1.2kg) in solid Walnut.
