Have any of You made or seen a LF camera made of LEGOs ?
Could be an interesting project - start off doing just a tailboard style with fixed front standard. I'd be a bit concerned about light-tightness though. Legos are not precision-machined, and I think it would be pretty easy to have light-leaks between the blocks, especially on the vertical faces.
They are also not truly opaque.
Not LF but still interesting: http://www.foundphotography.com/PhotoThoughts/archives/2005/10/medium_format_p.html. Maybe someone will do a LF in Lego Digital Designer to see wich bricks will be needed.
in my school, we once made pinhole cameras of LEGO.. large format too.
you have to put some black thick cardboard inside the "camera" to keep it light proof....
but it is FUN
somewhere on the innernet, I saw someone with a pinhole lego. I think it was a link buried deep in www.toycamera.com/forum (or onfal.com older forum)
I've made a pinhole out of LEGO about a year ago. Surely is a ***** to lightproof. I wanted something worthwhile and was kinda nice (aka didn't fall apart), so I gave up. But I came up with some cool designs of cameras!
could You post some of Your designs ?
I made one from foamcore. Gaffer's tape made it light-tight. That's probably easier to work with than the black cardboard.
