About this project

I wanted to challenge myself by selecting a 3D hard surface model with a complicated surface and small details to recreate using blender and substance painter.

About the camera

I decided to 3D model the Canon P rangefinder because it follows many principles I myself follow as a designer including the belief that form should always follow function. The camera design is heavily inspired by the minimalistic aesthetic which is one of my favorite design styles. This film camera design was far ahead of its time when it was released in 1959
