3D-printed cameras are fast poised to grow into the next big thing in photography, and this is perfectly understandable when you consider the wonderfully innovative models that individuals are coming up with -- the aptly named Lux Camera is the perfect example of this.

Designed by Thingverse website member ApostleofColour, this particular 3D-printed camera features a complicated design and is targeted towards DIY 3D-printing enthusiasts who already have a bit of experience behind them. However, the great thing about this camera is that it is designed to be totally open source, allowing users to make unique changes to it by harnessing the Arduino computing platform. The camera's 7.9 x 9.4 x 11.7 cm dimensions make it easily portable and convenient to use on the go.

This 3D-printed camera is proof of the growing relevance of open source computing in the camera design realm.
