    Pinhole Lego Film Transport Assembly

    I've been messing with my junction box pinhole for about a year now and was unhappy with the clunky film transport I had originally designed for it.

    I took the first version and rebuilt it using Lego technics pieces - works oodles better and film movement is so much smoother.

    Here's a couple of shots - both loaded and unloaded and one of the complete pinhole camera

    If anyone needs the parts list, let me know:

    I was also shocked how well it worked - the box as well was pretty easy - just one of those weather sealable junction boxes - I replaced the screws with studs that would work with wing nuts - the orange cylinder on the top is a magnet for stowing the wing nuts - also up top is a bi-directional bubble level.

    You can download a free software to design your camera with existing lego parts. When the design is over , you can buy whatever and how many parts ever used in your design. This is fully automatic order system within their website.

    Only pinhole camera I can invest time is the pinhole anamorphic camera. Your second camera could be that. I liked the box very much and the pinhole with a shutter and release cord.

    May be you could glue every part to protect it from impacts.

    I reallly loved this lego camera. Congrulations.

    Very impressive! such a simple and thought out application of lego parts and 120 film spools. I also dig the electrical junction box. I might have to make one soon!
