Twenty-four year old Léo Marius has created a 35mm film SLR using a 3D printer, complete with a viewfinder and compatibility for any lens mount (once the appropriate mount is created and attached, of course). The camera isn't available for sale, but Marius provides instructions for creating your own. Click through for more details, and pictures of the homemade camera.

Canon has unveiled the Selphy CP900, a Wi-Fi-enabled dye-sub compact photo printer. The CP900 can print borderless 4x6" photos in as little as 47 seconds. The built-in screen and control interface allows you to browse computers on the same Wi-Fi network to locate your images. There are also iOS and Android apps that allow direct printing to the CP900. In addition to it Wi-Fi capabilities, the CP900 is also smaller and lighter than the existing CP800 model. An equivalent model has not been announced for Europe (though a non-Wi-Fi CP810 variant exists). The CP900 will cost around $100.
