Do you have a cool photography idea that seems impossible and out of reach? Check out the campaigns of these successfully crowd-funded projects and see what kind of big ideas get funded on platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

The Pixelstick light painter

The Pixelstick is a LED 'bar' that reads images created in Photoshop (or the image editor of your choice) and displays them one line at a time, creating endless possibilities for abstract and/or photorealistic art using light painting & long exposure techniques. The project raised $628,417 from a target of $110,000.

The Pop-Up Pinhole Project

The Pop-Up Pinhole Project successfully raised funds for the ‘Videre’, a DIY camera that works without a lens. Instead it uses a simple pinhole to take photographs onto medium format film. It comes in a beautiful and hardwearing do-it-yourself kit. The kickstarter raised £35,164 from a target £15,000.

New55 Film

Meet the future of ‘professional darkroomless analog photography’. The New55 FILM is a new instant 4x5 film that produces a superb negative, and a positive print too. New55 FILM is based on a similar single-shot architecture as old Polaroid type 55, but the New55 FILM will trade upon its own unique tonal characteristics. The project has raised  $108,573 of it’s $400,000 goal, so there’s still time for you to make a pledge here
