    Okay I know film cameras are cheap now but I like to distroy cameras. Kind of getting even for 30 years of distroying me. So this is the latest set of builds.

    These are all built on the ansco pioneer camera body. Lense changed and a view/ uncoupled range finder added. Different lenses from a fairly modern x sync speedex to an old kodak bulb and finally to a pinhole. So here you go.

    Charlie, I love your Frankenstein cameras. I do, however, shudder at the thought of you getting your hands on a Hassy or a Leica!:lol:

    In the picture with the water coloe set in the background, is that black rubber bands or electrical tape holding the lens on?

    The tape doesn't hold it on, It covers the white plastic water pipe that holds it on. We mustn't have even the possibility that it leaks light. ROFLMAO

    The plastic pipe fits close enough that it can be used to telescope in and out to set the infinity focus. The black tape really does cover the white so it doesn't look so bad and also to black out the white simi translucent pipe.

    With out black tape photography as we know it could not exist. Well as I know it.

    The electrical tape was a much better choice than duct tape.
