    Thanks, it really only took 2 hours to make.

    I didn't really go off of any design, I made it up as I went "well I need a board (since I couldn't get someone to sell me a cheap one) so I'll make this cardboard and tape the film" ok good, "now, what if I move the camera and the board falls over? Better make side supports to hold it steady" hmm "what if it's on the ground, I'll want to elevate it slightly for a good view, so let's add this raising board and move the pinhole to match the higher board position" hmm "it's cardboard but it still might reflect light, especially that shiny tape, guess I'll have to spray paint it flat black"

    So that's where I am now.

    I'm the first non-engineer in 4 generations, so... I tend to find ways to make stuff happen even as an artist that kind of thing comes in handy...

    Looks good! You might be surprised at the detail in an 11x14 pinhole. Have fun!

    ( BTW I finished building those simple MDF filmholders, and almost finished the camera they go in. The camera itself was inexpensive/free but it has a nice lens so it won't be for this MSA )

    Thanks, that's assuming the calculations are right... I've seen a lot of pinhole images and I wasn't paying much attention but most seem to be in the 1-2 hour long exposure...

    But this one is only 6 minutes... According to the chart thing I found...

    Hope I didn't miss any light leak spots...

    Hope the paint fumes don't kill it either LOL

    (Sorry to drag along the MSA through my epic journey but I'm excited).

    It's definitely not sharp though, or doesn't seem to be. I still have to let it dry, then strip one side, then wash and dry again, THEN I can see how it looks, but fairly certain it's a little fuzzy.

    Not sure if that's the pinhole size or my measurements, or the wind... Will have to read more.

    But whoa! That neg is huge! I'm officially an Ultra Large Format Photographer!!!!!

    ULF Pinhole!!!!

    11x14 x-ray film ($30 for 100 sheets= $0.30 per image!!)

    Cardboard box, tape, flat black paint, FREE courtesy of my parents.

    20cc's of Rodinal ($13/ 500ml bottle = $0.52 per image!!).

    $0.30+$0.52= a whopping $0.82 camera!!! In 11x14!!!!!!

    Beat that!!
    Hi Stone,
    That sounds like a challenge ...

    I posted in the pinhole thread an answer to your question about the calculations.
    One other thing: there is a lot of plastic tape inside the box. This might cause some severe reflections at long exposures - even if painted black. You could get some black paper to cover the tape up.
    Good luck and welcome to the pinhole world !!!
    BTW: make contact prints with your paper negative instead of scanning it.

    Well, it Ain't pretty....

    Cropped to 5x7 ratio because it was scanned in 2 parts and merged (took me an hour to even figure out how to do that and still the scanner only does 10 inches so I was off a bit and had to cut the top and bottom.

    Also, my aim was off, I meant to expose more of the river and less of the snow...

    ALSO the image is totally out of focus... and has what appears to be uneven development? and also tons of scratches (many I think happened when loading the film into the holder in the dark bag). Help! so much to correct! anyway what the heck, submitting this shitty photo... ironically the river exposed properly-ish but my aim was off.

    11x14 cardboard Pinhole camera - X-ray film - Rodinal 1:50 for 6 minutes in rotary cibichrome tube, rear emulsion clorox bleach stripping after development, scanned, merged, a mess, but done.

    Nice work Stone!

    This marks one month into this challenge and what people have been doing so far is blowing my mind.

    Another couple, already in the gallery. Taken with the Holga WPC (wide pinhole camera)
    These were taken during our recent indulgence, a week on Maui. I shot a couple of rolls of B&W, but mostly colour.

    When I went to the local store (that will be sending the film to Custom Colour in Vancouver) and poured my little pile of 120 film on the counter, the woman behind the counter, who is my age, and has worked at the photo finishing counter for years and years, looked startled - "what are THOSE?" Luckily the manager was close by, had a few dozen more clues than she did, and stepped in.
    It'll be a week or more, before I get those back. I'll share whatever's worthy.

    It was a blast to have such a fun and lightweight camera while holidaying. The WPC, gorilla pod, and Pentax digital spot meter, all fit in my pockets, and weighed much less than the towel and lunch in my bag.

    Thanks Stone! I like the pool too. It was big enough to swim in - almost as long as the community pool here. They have been having an usually dry winter, so the falls were just a trickle.

    Here's another one. We were staying on the wetter, more jungly side of Maui. The tourist strip, is on the drier and more deserty south west. That's where I found a field of aloe vera, in Makena Park.
