In the channel will go: paper or film, followed by a window mat, followed by a darkslide. I'm going to try to seal the opening with felt or velcro material. Maybe you could make something out of matboard or foamcore? Or improvise a 1-shot setup and load it in the dark? Not sure if this is any help since I don't know what you're up to and it's probably a secret or at least a surprise....
    If I can't get a standard holder for spring lock backs, basically I'll tape a single sheet to a board or piece of cardboard and install it in the dark into the box camera... And do one shot... BUT it would be way more useful if I could take 2 shots, and re-load if necessary...

    Seeing as I don't have a darkroom, my only option is to wait till night time and load it in the attic, it's too big to fit in any dark tent so I can only take one shot a day...

    If I have a holder, I'll be able to change the film in the tent and shoot as many as I want per day.

    Make sense?

    Definitely makes sense! I have a small closet I can use for my 1-shot cameras during the day, but of course I have to come home to do that! A film holder, as you say, can be swapped out in a changing bag. Good luck and have fun!

    Sweet bike!

    Post them in the thread or the gallery, whatever you prefer (or both). I'll check both when it comes time to make a decision.

    I find the thread is nicer for posting larger than gallery size images, but that for "deciding" it's nice for the judge to be able to look through the "MSA gallery" there's a specific drop down when you upload to put in the monthly shooting assignment area... In fact, to keep it fair, I BELIEVE this gallery is open to non-subscribers IIRC

    Subscribers only in the galleries - all of them.

    Maybe it's that they can VIEW the gallery, that's so if the judge ISNT a subscriber they can still view that gallery for choosing a winner.

    Mid 1920's Ansco Goodwin #2, HP5+. Exposed a roll of 8 and got this one which I really liked. This is direct from the contact sheet, which for this frame at least exposed nicely at grade 2. The film was developed semi-stand for a half hour in Ansco 130, 1:43 dilution with an inversion at 10 and 20 minutes.

    Special features of the Ansco Goodwin #2 include a selectable aperture (choice between settings of "no idea" and "haven't a clue"), a shutter, uncoated 1-element glass lens, and plenty of black electrical tape inside and out to keep light from straying too much.

    Ok, haven't taken a picture yet with it (paint drying...) but, talk about CHEAP!

    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!!

    Now I just need to actually take a picture...

    In the mean time...

    This is my first pinhole camera so I hope I did the calculation right, it's a bit confusing to "simplify" for a guy like me...

    Might be cheap Stone but your effort is priceless!
    Good luck with the picture and look forward to the results.
