    Someone mentioned wanting a rollfilm pinhole camera. Just go to your local junk shop and buy a forty year old box camera for five euros/dollars etc, remove the lens and shutter (if there is no "B" setting) replace with a piece of foil and a home made lenscap and there it is.

    Probably it will have a viewfinder too and as the pinhole to film distance is pretty much the same as it was for lens to film, then it should work adequately - bearing in mind that it wasn't perfect to begin with of course. Visualising lines from an imaginary dot in the centre of the film area, to an imaginary film-sized shape in the plane of the pinhole will work as an estimated viewfinder, or you can do the same sort of thing with a few pieces of piano-wire to make a physical peep-frame.

    I still don't understand if this can use a 4x5 film holder. I would think that a camera that needs to be reloaded in a dark area or changing bag after each picture would be a PITA to use.

    It's not designed to take a darkslide, it's a one-shot device. The camera is in the form of 2 boxes, one (which carries the pinhole) slides inside the other & retains the 5x4" paper (or film) flat at the film plane. They're held firmly together with a couple of little built-in magnets. It's very well designed & slick, but you've got to get the decisive moment! (Or carry a changing bag).

    Ilford already has a 4x5 pinhole camera that takes 4x5 film holders namely the Harman Titan. Check it out it's a great camera. http://www.ilfordphoto.com/pressroom/article.asp?n=140

    Also check out this guy from "Jerry's handmade camera workshop". https://www.facebook.com/NatashaPinholeCamera

    I bought one of his 6x18 cm camera for 120 roll film. It works wonderful and it's a beauty. And costs much less than the Titan cameras ...

    It has a simple but ingenious internal shutter and no changing back required
    It is also possible to fix a filter in front of the pinhole.
    I'm contemplating on the Vietnamese cypress handmade 135 pinhole camera (focal length: 25mm, 24x68mm wide frame) price US$67 and US$10 for international shipping.

    He also made a nice 4x5" wooden pinhole camera once for film holders with an internal shutter with cable release.

    Dear All,

    Its a 'single shot system' and does not take a dark slide.

    One of the nice things about pinholes is the choice....lots of interesting stuff out in the market, that is to be celebrated.

    I agree and I thank you guys from Ilford & Harman for sticking to and supporting the analogue photography with films, papers, chemistry and even new (pinhole) cameras.
    I bought me a stack of FP4+ film (and chemistry) last week and can't wait for April 28th to load my 6x18 camera!!

    BTW: can you tell us if the Titan 8x10" is already available and were we can see & order this camera?
    Thanks
