During the long pandemic quarantine, I bought a laser cutter the size of a small Volkswagen to cut ventilator prototype parts, Brooklyn Film Camera Polaroid scan trays, and a number of other photographic equipment parts. I bought the largest cutter that I could fit in my shop, because I had been dreaming of the 20×24 […]
A few months ago I was catching up with CAMERADACTYL’s Ethan Moses when we got to talking about projects that would have the most impact on the film photography community. I happened to mention my pet peeve: the lack of a modern equivalent to the Kodak Pakon, an automated full-roll film scanner. Fast forward to […]
“Are you drilling?” asked my bleary-eyed wife, coming out of the bedroom of our small apartment at 1:30am. My desk was cluttered with tools, plastic shavings, and a half-completed CAMERADACTYL Brancopan 3D-printed camera. Of course I was drilling: the Brancopan has 27 fasteners with 1,094 thread revolutions, and there was no way that I was […]
Well, here it is. My second 3D printed camera in all its glorious plastic glory, with a Mamiya universal press lens again. Actually, the same lens as the one on my Goodman One, the 65mm f/6.3.

My name is Ethan, I make cameras at CAMERADACTYL. I 3D print film cameras and ship them all over the world. If you haven’t heard of me before, here are some links to articles I’ve written about some of my previous projects, the CAMERADACTYL HOMONCULUS 69, OG 4×5 and 4×5 Field Camera. Now that we’re […]

My name is Ethan, I am the stable genius behind Cameradactyl. I recently published a video with some simple tips and tricks, and a few products guaranteed to take your photography to the next level.
For the last few months, I have been working tirelessly at destroying my anonymity for the purpose of selling cameras.
I wrote a whole long blah-blah about this camera I made here.
I have always built cameras, machines and models for fun.
