  Founder: Ari Melenciano   Ojo Oro is a line of experimental and experiential cameras that merges the experience of digital and analog/film photography - unleashing a world of possibilities with the emergence of design, technology and photography. The current iteration of the camera has no screen, as a film camera wouldn't, and immediately sends each photo or gif that it takes, straight to twitter.
