    I buy them and if one feels compelled to make their own, they should certainly do so. Guess I could make my own tooth brush, however I don't. I recently bought a Skink pinhole on ebay. The camera made with it is posted in the forum on camera building here on Apug. Bill Barber

    Well, I make my own pinholes just because I'm a cheap bastard and after using some very fancy pinhole cameras, my homemade kits do just as worthy.

    ^ google "build pinhole camera" and you'll get shittons of results.

    I do both. I use a Zero Image 69 which is my workhorse but I also make 4x5 pinholes. 4x5 are easier to make because you dont have to deal with the roll film mechanism. That being said a good compromise to homemade roll film based camera would be to convert older 35mm and medium format cameras to pinholes.

    This is the 4x5 pinhole that I build:

    So far I have made all of mine. I'm not rigidly opposed to spending money, but I've been reasonably happy with my last couple of efforts. Maybe some day I'll buy a laser jobbie for one of my earlier cameras and see if it "opens a whole new world."

    ColRay, go to post #6 http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/1...periences.html

    I built that sucker for under $30 out of black Gorilla tape, foamcore, and a cut piece of beer can for the pinhole. Bout as cheap as they come, especially for 16x20
