The camera-shaped everyday carry (EDC), multi-tool by Kikkerland Design allows users carry bulky, cumbersome tools in an easy-to-carry form that fits into a wallet.
Kikkerland Design claims to have one of the largest collections of everyday-use items in the world that combine fashion and function. The company was founded in 1992 and supports independent, self-producing designers around the globe. It also uses its 15-member in-house design team for new product development and design. Kikkerland’s products are available in museums and stores around the globe, as well as through its website.
Kikkerland created this compact, stylish multi-tool after realizing that photographers need multiple tools to make the most of their camera and accessories.
This small, stainless steel tool measures 7.6 x 3.0 x 0.02-centimeters. It includes a blade edge to cut, a Phillips and flat-head screwdrivers, two wrenches, a prybar nail puller and bottle opener, butterfly screw wrench and ruler.
Everyday carry items can be useful in all situations, but this credit-card-sized, camera-multi-tool by Kikkerland is more handy for photographers because of its versatility and fun design. The multi-tool is ideal for creatives who shoot film. It has a circular cavity at the center that allows users to pre-visualize the angle and help them choose the best one. Screwdrivers and wrenches can also be used to adjust tripods and grip equipment.
These tools are often found on larger multi-tools such as a Leatherman but are much larger and more cumbersome. This camera-shaped tool by Kikkerland can be used to replace more expensive or more specific tools, and it is small enough that it can be carried around.
Although a single tool that is designed for a specific purpose will be more intuitive, having multiple options at your disposal is a great way to stay on top of things.
