Analog photography enthusiasts, this one’s for you! PetaPixel has partnered with Dora Goodman to give away more than $2,900 worth of 3D-printed cameras, including a custom-designed Goodman Zone medium format camera.
Tradition + Tech = Unique Take on Analog Cameras
Film photography is coming back! Beginners and avid photographers alike are picking up analog cameras, embracing the limitations and imperfections that make film photography so enjoyable.
Dora Goodman’s pinhole and medium format cameras are making the entry (or re-entry) into film photography both affordable and enjoyable. Goodman started out in 2016 by re-skinning film cameras with materials like wood, glass, and leather. With her unique designs, she quickly gained a following among analog enthusiasts looking for personalized and eye-catching cameras. Today, Dora Goodman Cameras is a boutique camera maker with a team of six people who design, 3D print, and handcraft beautiful and innovative photography gear.
The Goodman Zone medium format camera is making a splash among analog and film photography enthusiasts for being inexpensive, customizable, and producing quality images. Available as a fully assembled camera, DIY kit, and even as print-at-home design files (for free!), the Goodman Zone has inspired many photographers with its lightweight and quality build, low cost, and opportunities to customize and accessorize.
Where the Goodman Zone is all about accessories and personalization, Goodman’s SCURA pinhole camera is all in on simplicity and ease of use. The SCURA is available in both 35mm and 6×6 format. It’s designed with a curved film plane to produce sharper images without vignetting. Just like the Zone, you can purchase SCURA assembled and as a DIY kit. Or, you can download the design files (once again, for free!) from GoodLab and 3D print the camera at home.
