    Hi all! Glad to have found ya'll! I just purchased a Zero Image 33mm camera on Ebay yesterday, and can't wait to get it. I'm wondering if there are any special tips/tricks I should know about it? I assume I can use any 35 mm film in it, right? How do I know how far to advance the film? I've never used a pinhole before, and have cautiously approached buying one. After buying a new digital camera that gives me crappy photos, I decided to go low tech! :smile:

    thanks!

    This is a great gem of a tiny tiny camera. When it was announce, I ordered one. Turns out that when it arrived it had serial number 001. How cool is that.

    The instructions that came with the camera are pretty clear, but if this "used" model is missing the instructions, go on-line with the Zero Image web site and dig them up. You may have to e-mail Zero Image to get a pdf version.

    There's lot to learn. Where to start?

    Thanks, Pinholemaster!

    I didn't realize how small this really was until I got out the ruler. That's OK; it makes it more of a little jewel, doesn't it? That's cool that you got 001...

    Right, where to start? I can't wait!! I mostly love taking atmospherical still life photos, so will have a lot to learn about lighting, etc. I can't get the same effect with my other cameras.
