The Olympus Air camera is the commercial version of the Olympus Open Platform Camera (OPC), which people are making all kinds of hardware and software projects for.

A strange new one is the Open Platform Grip, a 3D printed gun-style grip that lets you point and shoot a “camera pistol” to take pictures.

The creators say that the design is perfect for the viewfinder-less Olympus Air, allowing photographers to aim and frame shots without having to look at any display.

You can even add a tactical sight to the top as a composition aid:

The grip also allows you to carry your camera around on a gun holster-style attachment on a belt.

This grip was given a special jury award at the OPC Hack & Make Awards 2015. If you own an Olympus Air and would like to print a grip for yourself, you can buy the files over at DMM.make.
