How do I make my camera?
Make this amazing 3MP (2408 x 1536) camera and enjoy taking brilliant shots with flash, timer, panorama and even 3D photo options. No need to worry if you run out of power whilst you’re out and about as the camera has a hand crank to charge up the battery on the go. Get fields of view ranging from 80 degrees for panoramic, 40 degrees for regular photos and 16 degrees for stereo (3D) pictures. Just like a standard camera you have a 1W flash and a 1.4 inch LCD screen to view the images. The camera even has internal flash storage for up to 120 JPEG photos.

What can you see in this kit?
This is a perfect kit for those who are fascinated by cameras. Delve into the inner workings of digital cameras as you assemble it from 43 parts and learn about optics with lens and prisms to capture the image. The camera is also a great introduction to mechanics with its hand crack dynamo that is assembled from gears, axels and a dynamo so you can see how all the moving parts come together. Look through the interactive book to get an understanding of the underlying concepts. No solder or glue is required with this clip together kit.

How do I get the pictures from the camera?
When you’ve assembled your camera and taken some great shots you can then show them off. The Bigshot camera can be connected to a Window PC or Mac and you can transfer you pictures to share, store and print using the free software from the bigshot website. This is the perfect camera for enthusiasts to build and find that perfect shot.
