    I saw one of these cameras at the Society for Photographic Education conference this past weekend at Harman's booth. It looked nice and well made.

    someone said "lacking a need for a dds.." what's a dds?

    and, simon, it doesn't say -- can this use a 4 x 5 film holder or is it loaded manually and used as a one-shot?

    DDS is the 4x5 film holder.

    Is there a chance that you could sometime come up with a pinhole medium format camera? I don't have the ability to develop sheet film, but I would love to try medium format and the available cameras are quite expensive for used and I really don't want a Holga, the light leaks aren't what I want to get into.

    I'm excited about this new pinhole camera. I've never purchased a commercially made pinhole, other than a recently acquired Holga, but this one I would consider.

    Simon, one feature I'd like to see included are viewing lines or dots on the sides and top of the camera, as an aid to composition. I have this on many of my homemade box cameras and it's a wonderfully simply and surprisingly accurate method of composing on a camera otherwise absent a viewfinder.

    DDS is a film holder? If you say so. What do the letters stand for?

    As to medium format pinhole -- there are many options -- ZeroImage is the high end at $200 or so for a gorgeous camera that is a real girl magnet too. Their ZeroImage 2000 is a terrific camera, one of the most popular, at about $100.

    If you noodle around Facebook for "pinhole film cameras" you will find many nicely made roll film pinhole cameras for 20 on up depending on gorgeousness and complexity --- hell, buy yourself an old folding roll film agfa or box camera or something and make your own. This way you also get a viewfinder.

    As to holga light leaks -- that's probably a whole nother subject/thread, but I actually "cured" them by covering the inside of my stereo holga with flat black paper -- and i mean really flat black -- and discovered that the so-called leaks were really internal reflections. I sprayed the inside of my Russian Stereo medium format (after covering the lenses -- duh ) and had similar results.

    i did, sorry, but didn't feel like wading thru 40 inches on grafatic holders and all that other stuff for one acronym I never use, which the article also doesn't use, even though I have a couple dozen film holders. just never ever heard the term before.

    and that article is weird -- it says a film holder "sometimes referred to as a dark slide." No, the dark slide is the thing you forget to take out of the film holder when you are taking a really cool picture.

    Stupid wikipedia.

    Not a bad trinket, Simon.

    I'll get in the queue and splash out on one for my birthday if it touches down in Australia. How unfortunate that it won't be around for the World Pinhole Photography Day, at least in the southern hemisphere...

    Appears to be a digitally-operated shutter...? Erm, I mean, a finger is used to open/close shutter, rather than a cable release?
    I didn't much like the first incarnation of pinhole camera by Ilford but this one is immediately appealing for its smaller size and clean lines.
