    Excellent. It's not a pinhole camera, however. It has a lens.

    Best,
    Helen

    LOL, looks like fun to do!

    However, he talks about his random compositions and connects this to his personality, well, I would say, he honestly just faces a problem here regarding the logistics needed to set up his cam in places and perspectives, which allow for some more controlled compositions.

    He is not the only one using cameras of this size BTW. I have seen other people. Seem to remember one where just creating one image did cost 5-10K because setting up the cam on his very special locations was very costly. Sorry, no link, need to dig in my memory, maybe I will remember names ... :(

    Oh, and this guy here, I mean, it's like, you know, it's like he uses it's like way too often :p

    Alex, yeah, there was a gal (or guy?) in here asking about using a shed as a camera... I guess it's about the same deal.

    Pretty cool to see a video of it tho! :thumbup: Thanks Mr. Not!

    But I kinda wonder why he can only see "points of light" for focusing. Shouldn't is be a fairly vivid image in that setup? Hmmm...


    So I wonder if there's going to be a digital version anytime soon? :D

    Hmm, not sure, but it seems that the aperture here is pretty small compared to the size of the recording film, well, f is pretty large. So the image should be rather faint and you need long exposures. Maybe while sitting in the camera, point-like highlights are the only thing you can really judge focus with then.

    Would have a good s/n ratio since sensor pixels could be rather large ;)

    That's pretty cool, although I think a Nikon FM would be a bit easier.
