Craft Camera is a simplified D.I.Y digital camera.
It is established of a carboard case and an electronic system runned by Arduino.
All the elements are Open Source, allowing users to master the use and the life expectancy, or to build it as Do It Yourself.

This project has been initiated by designer Coralie Gourguechon as part of a personal project graduation in product design, on the thema "Low-Tech VS Hi-Tech".
The objective was to counter planned obsolescence and complexity of electronic products.
It answers to the specifications established at the beginning of the research: accessibility / repairability / sustainability.
The design of the electronic system has been done by electronics engineer Stéphane Delbruel, as well as the writing of the Arduino code.
The logo and the graphic design on the camera have been done by graphic designer Laura Messaglio.
This project received the support of the hackerspace Tetalab and Snootlab society. Craft camera's concept has been showed during the Open World Forum (24/07/11), Toulouse HackerSpace Factory (26&27/05/12), Tu imagines? Construis! (29&30/06/13), Bilbao Mini Maker Faire (13&14/07/13) and Rome Maker Faire (4,5&6/10/13).
