    [​IMG]With all this talk about pin hole cameras and new projects I thought you might like to see my 4x5 conversion of a polaroid 100 to a pin hole camera...[​IMG]

    Yes i just finished putting the adapter on for the pinhole and need to paint the lens. board todays project but after I test fire it. If you like old and nasty this one is right up there with the best of them.

    DO I WIN THE WORLDS UGLIEST CAMERA AWARD OR WHAT

    I am test shooting cameras with film today if I get a chance I will shoot a sheet of film with the pin hole and see it should be a heck of a lot better.

    God how I hate getting old... I shot the pin hole with film and it is dead on sharp and clean but... I exposed for the sky so it is so dark that it is pretty awful. If I have time and feel like wasting more film I'll do it again. I am also considering building a smaller version of the camera in a 2x3 version... Not sure yet though.

    I have a polaroid version laying about but I don't shoot polaroid film. I expect it will gather dust for a few months at least. I might just pull it and convert it to 3x4 or 2x3 not sure yet. Unless terri the only lover of polaroid film I know wants it lol.

    New rule because I'M going crazy: I will shoot only film in pinhole cameras. I will shoot paper negatives, but only in cameras with lenses. Otherwise I'm going to be soliciting rusty razor blades from my friends.
