    That is so interesting, I know some people here that would love to see it. The ultimate pinhole camera. I had a friend who made one out of a refrigerator box for pinhole day but I never saw a print so I'm not sure it was a success. Looks like they aren't coming to USA though. thanks for posting.

    I would like to see someone do that with a *cough* digital camera! haha!

    Very interesting. I think there would be a better way of developing large mural prints other than laying it on the floor and taking a sponge soaked with developer/stop/fix to the surface. I wonder why they dont use tubes? Hmmm...

    I was a little surprised at his development and fixing methods too. I would have thought it would be easier to see-saw it in a tub, but that's just me. Neat idea, but not totally new. I've seen at least one two vehicle camera's like this. One used glass optics, like this fellow, and the other was a pinhole.

    What do you suppose his paper is? It looks like it could be regular roll paper coated with liquid light to me.

    I remember reading a couple of years ago how some people made a hotel room into a pinhole camera. Don't remember where I read it though. It was interesting how they developed the print they made.
