    Wrebbit Paper camera.

    I have seen these on ebay and was wondering if any members have tried building one. Guess I,m kind of envious of the folks who talk about about making their own wooden LF cameras.
    Thought it might be a good winters day project.

    Thank You,
    Mike

    it certainly looks fun ...

    I'd give it a go if I were you.

    Does it actually have tilt and shift ? I imagine tilt would not have too much effect but shift would be interesting

    hmmm, and does the focusing rack work ? (ie. is it a zoom of sorts)

    If anything it would act as inspiration for further homebrew cameras
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...

    I've got one that's half complete. It will take more than an afternoon. especially considering drying time.

    35mm. No tilt or shift. some zoom, the front standard slides out a bit.

    hmmm, maybe I should go finish it.

    actually if you want to build a pinhole camer you'd probably be better off starting with an old 120 folder. It would be less work and a more usable camera.

    But if anyone is interested I'd sell you mine for whatever the shipping costs.
