    when they tell me to go shoot a pinhole this is what I use... Its a 620 rollfilm ansco ready flash with a grafted kodak brownie shutter with a pin hole lens .0177 of an inch in diameter. This shutter has I no use, B good for short exposures i guess, T the most valuable thing on the camera. Must be used with the gurkin bean bag sock for stability..[​IMG]

    Oh yeah this is from a paper negative....

    Its sad but true my newest pinhole camera had to be demolished, well some of it. the shutter would not work as a penhole it vinyetted the image. Darn shame.

    So its back to the steel and pinhole lens plastered to the body aw well always a fall back possition.

    Let me just add this one thing.... I hate pinhole when they have light leaks. It is almost impossible to find them. The tiniest leak will fog because the exposure is sooooooo long.

    Yes I did and no i didn't find it.

    Ive never been able to shoot a roll of 12o film in a cardboard camera. Otherwise I would make them out of typing paper.
