    This camera is the most exotic of my collection.

    I bought it in a boot sale for one euro and I love it.
    Built with the metal recovered from beer and soda cans it is unable to take photos but ...what a cool look. If I believe the seller, it was manufactured in Madagascar.

    It is presented here next to a well known camera to give the scale.

    Nice find Dan.
    Gives me some ideas for a scratch built working pinhole rig as a Winter project. Strap doesn't look too comfy though.

    Pretty nice Ensign pseudo TLR too.

    Hi Smithdan,
    A working pinhole camera is a good project.
    I am currently searching for working cameras that were made from sardine cans like this one : http://www.collection-appareils.fr/x/html/camera-1329-Irwin_Lark.html to bring some fun on my collector's shelves full of "serious" vintage items.
