    My name is Trond Kjetil Holst, I have been using pinhole cameras since 1984, so I have my 30th anniversary as a pinhole photographer this year. I live in northern Norway where the summer is light and the winter is dark. I have built many cameras, mostly of cardboard or foamboard, but a few of wood as well. Most of them use 4x5" film holders. I use film all the time. My biggest camera (so far) is "The Giant Mobile Camera". Image size 125x250cm (50x100").

    I hope to become more active here at APUG, to be honest I have been "sleeping too long".

    Auto-focus? Pleeze. But I am wondering, where is the pinhole?

    I would rather say ALL-focus camera.

    The pinhole is in the center of the black dot:

    In fact it is an aperture from an old non-working Compur :smile:

    How do you get out without exposing the film?

    Just don't go out. The camera is big enough to stay inside during exposure. Best of all: you see the picture. No problem at all :smile:
