The modular aluminum structure of the Eikan is constructed from high-grade anodized aluminum, meticulously cut using laser technology and shaped with specialized CNC brake press machines. To enhance durability and minimize scratches and wear, all aluminum components undergo a hard anodizing treatment, which fortifies the outer layer.
While we employ 3D printing in certain areas, such as the front and back standard, as well as the rotating back and ground glass focusing screen carrier, it is done purposefully. The utilization of 3D printing provides an unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio and allows for swift modifications and future upgrades, such as roll film back add-ons. These 3D printed parts are constructed using Carbon fiber reinforced PLA filament.
To maintain a high level of quality control and ensure a seamless user experience, we meticulously source all components and manufacturers within the same valley. With the exception of standard screws and magnets, nearly every component of the camera has been designed and fabricated from scratch. This deliberate approach eliminates technical compromises and delivers a product that surpasses expectations.
