    Really cool! That unitas is a great hand wind watch movement. I wish there were more pictures to show its tied into the shutter speed. I cant seem to find the shutter speed adjustment on the camera either in the pictures.

    very beautiful. Newt, i don't think there is a definite, shutter speed dial, more than likely, it was along the lines of two twists equals 30 seconds...

    link ^ shows he's made several cameras and their respective photos, although i'm just guessing and may be incorrect.

    also, i don't think you can buy it, or maybe for several thousands you can, (tens of thousands?) seeing as the watch it self is 800, at least the heartbeat 1 was... and that was only part of the camera.

    The Compass came to my mind too.

    In both cases mechanics who had to much time... or clientele with too much money...

    I would invest in putting a screwmount for accepting leitz glass and get best image. Engineers are strange. I am member of grabcad and they invest hundreds of hours to computer model of non functional engine drawings but lots of rendering and coloring. Its meaningless job.
    Form follow function , if function follow form , at least it might function as time invested to form.

    leica lenses make nice pictures, yes, mustafa, but that's sort of beside the point here, which is to make a very elaborate pinhole camera,a tour de force of camera building -- pinhole cameras are all about doing it the hard way, but ending up with unique images anyway.
