    Grazie! :)

    And thank you for taking good care of my films :)

    Thanks!

    Yes, this takes 120 and I used TriX for the test roll. The field of view on any pinhole is very wide, but it's more pronounced with the 6x6. This camera has no viewfinder but it does have markings on the top that help determine the field of view. The markings are helpful, but it's still very exciting when I manage to get the framing right :)

    I have the 35mm ONDU pinhole camera as well, and you're right - it isn't the same. I think it's similar to a Holga - you really need a big square to get the full effect of the pinhole (or plastic lens) artifacts, which is kind of the point of shooting with those tools anyway. Cutting the frame (either 35mm or the 6x4.5 mask on the Holga) takes away, imho, the more interesting artifacts and just leaves the softness. It can still be interesting and dreamy, just not as good, I think.

    Thanks! One of my favorites, too :)

    rThanks, Derrel! :D
