    Using a box designer program, I created a pinhole camera with a removable film back holder.

    Behold! Pinholio V.1.1!

    Currently still in the prototype arena, but I'm constantly modifying ideas to make it dead simple to use. Next will be a film magazine a-la large format cameras, as well as a primitive shutter and tripod socket. Currently uses one frame of 35mm or a 1.5 inch square of print paper.

    Any ideas are appreciated.

    As a side note: The embossing-like effect of the laser treatment on the plywood is intriguing.

    Love the 35mm emblem on the top, too. I'd love a 4x5 one.

    About 3x3x3 inches. Pinhole distance is different because the removable back has a little frame type thing to hold the paper/film in place. I could post the pdf of the design if I hadn't left my flashdrive at Techshop.

    There's only one so far, it's in the same Flickr stream as above.

    Also, I'm currently working on a 4 inch one that will have a tripod socket, interchangeable pinholes, and a magnetically locking back.

    After that is a 5x7 :D
