The 100 Cameras Project is a truly visionary idea
Now and again you come across an idea that just makes you want to say ‘wow’.
The 100 Cameras Project is such an idea. With awe-inspiring simplicity, it’s doing amazing things – and we are delighted to be contributing to its success.
One hundred disabled people throughout America are being provided with switch-adapted cameras to capture their vision of their world, sharing the sights they love.
Who would have thought that a team from a small town in Shropshire could play a part in this innovative and creative venture? But we have! Some of the switch accessible digital cameras have winged their way from right here at Excitim.
This was all the dream of a photographer called Courtney Bent. She appealed for $10,000 to pay for the project from the community GoFundme site and money raised surpassed this total.
There’s a brilliantly eloquent account from Courtney herself all about the 100 Cameras Project here:
Help support The 100 Cameras Project: 100 cameras. 100 people with disabilities. 100 new voices.
The 100 Cameras Project will put modified camera systems into the hands of 100 people with disabilities ranging from Autism to Down Syndrome to Alzheimer’s to Cerebral Palsy, throughout the U.S., bringing the vision of these new photographers to life while building awareness of disability, diversity and inclusion through art.

So far, Excitim has contributed five complete photography kits. Each kit includes:
• Canon PowerShot A810
• Switch interface box
• 2 memory cards with the switch software installed
We can’t wait to see the results!
