    My "Dragon" arrived last Monday and I promptly set about running a couple of rolls of Tri-X through it. This is a feature packed pinhole that is fun to use. Compared to my Zero Image cameras, it does have the same "fine furniture" kind of fit and finish, however lets face it this is a tool use to produce a particular result. It is a great tool. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with these camera and they do offer great bang for your bucks.

    Attached is an image made with the camera. End were cropped very slightly as they aren't perfectly straight. Bill Barber

    I meant to say it does not have the same fine furniture fit and finish as the Zero Image cames. It is a very nice camera and a great bargain. Bill Barber

    Cool. I too think these are a bargain considering the price.

    Do you mean it's the same quality as the Zero? I have their Sky model and while it's very nice, it's not nearly as 'fine' as the Zero. That said, it does seem more robust.
