    Another warm welcome, Anthony. This one from the Great Pacific Northwest. And another sincere thank you for your service.

    I read at National Geographic Web Site that Martinez name is the most frequently used name in California.

    Wouldn't surprise me if that was true for Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas as well. Martinez and Smith both take up significant portions of phonebooks in any state bordering Mexico.

    Welcome to APUG, Anthony. I hope that you find a 4x5 camera to suit you.

    Thanks, Charles. I still have some thin brass stock, so I believe I may build a 4x5 pinhole. I've built a pinhole camera that works rather well with 120 roll film (though I need to cut a red-window for the frame numbers soon). I can see no reason why I shouldn't give it a shot in 4x5 as an entry point. Perhaps I'll do that this weekend just to see how it comes out.

    Anthony ,

    Do you know Anamorphic Pinhole Cameras record on 6x17 film ? www.f295.org is a good place to learn and check the results plus construction plans free. You need to find forums buttons and there are thousands of pictures recorded with pinhole , zone plate or what is the current technology. You dont need to subscribe them to view the results.
    120 film is easier for you and I dont cant think you will have business with the zone system , beyond the zone system while you are with 4 x 5 pinhole so why go in to trouble.
    If you buy 250 microns pinhole from lenox laser and go for the anamorphic camera , you will have faraway sharper pictures and 6 x 17 positives or negatives.
    I think your Mamiya is great also.

    Umut, I've been through f295.org a time or three. I've kicked around the idea of 6x17, but I'd just as soon enjoy one in 4x5 as well. My 120 pinhole isn't quite a full 6x6cm frame (thanks to the quantity of beer I consumed while measuring and cutting), but I like it well enough. Truth be told, I'm not particularly interested in the highest quality pinhole that can be constructed. To me, pinholes are about the imperfections that make them fun and personal. What will probably happen is I'll likely end up building a box camera 4" deep, and I'll likely take the high-E string end from my Stratocaster (.012") when I change the strings and shove it through a piece of brass stock. That should cover a 4x5" negative, yield about a 75 degree angle of view and leave me with about f/340. The results may end up worth printing, or they may end up very much the opposite. Either way it will be fun!

    Wow , You have an Victorian taste at photography , lets say impressionist. Yes , You would try a 8x10 color later. I have a French painter Monets print and I now better understand what you are talking about.
    Its summer time at texas and may be there is desert flowers bloom. Yes , You will have lots of fun.

    Best ,

    Umut
