Noon Pinhole 5x4
The Noon Pinhole cameras are handmade in Poland from Jatobá (Hymenaea courbaril), also known as Brazilian cherry, a tree common to the Caribbean, Central, and South America and Brazil. Fitted with a 0.3mm laser drilled pinhole individually microscopically examined for roundness, the focal length is 50mm corresponding to a f number of about f/152. Image capture angle is 116 degrees.
The camera accepts a standard Double Dark Slide in a rather unusually ingenious way: instead of a conventional slot, the DDS is placed in the back of the camera and held in position by a ribbed wooden dowel which slides down angled guides – push the dowel down firmly to hold the DDS against the light trap. Simple and effective.
