On Kickstarter, the Ondu III wooden pinhole camera by Ondu brought in more than $100,000 in pledges. Ondu only had a goal of $20,000.
The camera, featuring no lens, focus, mirror, or batteries, goes all in on simplicity and minimalism. Ondu sought to create a camera that runs smoothly, makes shake free exposures possible, allows for short exposures, makes a clicking sound, and that makes filter use possible.
The camera is mostly made of CNC-machined ash or walnut. Nineteen variations of the camera are available, featuring different colors and features, and a choice of bright ash or dark walnut. Learn more on the Kickstarter page.
