With alchemic illustration and snippets from Corbis' extensive stock images library, the design firm Fwis has created downloadable, DIY pinhole camera patterns, available online. With a roll of old-school film, a printer and a fewoffice supplies,users can make their very ownartypinhole cameras, primitive devices that use a tiny hole as a lens and a manual shutter to capture light images on film, the old-fashioned way. Users canalso choosefrom a variety of vibrant, image-smattered patterns and camera shapes. The print-and-built concept extends from Fwis' previously designedReadymech toys.

Direct email andmentions on Corbis' Web site and in its newsletter drive traffic to the site. The cameras are part of the stock image company's larger interactive efforts, with a special nod to the history of photography and the tradition of hands-on artistic creation.
