The iPhone turned your old cameras into relics. Why not turn a relic into a piece of art for your wall?

Outdated but still pretty, those old cameras can again see the light of day with Hangie, a discreet metal wall mount that gives something classic its rightful resting place.

It is a sturdy, L-shaped bracket that takes two screws to mount to the wall, with a third that fits the camera’s tripod mount.

You could hang one camera or many to establish the evolutionary timeline of your photography tools. The Hangie, or several, could go into a studio as a handy way to store cameras still in use.

The Hangie solution was designed by LaudWorks and printed by Shapeways, a 3-D printing company recently mentioned by Cult of Mac in a profile of Charles Mangin, who uses Shapeways to print his miniature replicas of retro Macs.

One Hangie will cost between $21 and $25 depending on the material you request. Bronze-infused stainless steel, polished bronze steel and matte bronze go for $21. Hangies in polished gold steel, matte gold steel, polished nickel steel, polished grey steel and matte black steel cost $4 more.

Wondering about the weight? The Hangie was tested with a Canon 7D holding a 17-55 mm zoom lens, which weighed in at just over 3 pounds and was secure, according to LaudWorks.
