    Photos of 8 X 10 pinhole camera

    I posted some images in the standard gallery and have had a question or two about the camera. I thought I had posted completed pictures here, however guess I didn't. Camera was made as a 3-D printmaking project. There is a woodcut on the front and three silk screens on three of the sides. Pinhole and tripod socket by Skink. Bill Barber

    All to often these homemade cameras lack some personality, and connection to the owner. This one has both. The camera is a work of art in itself.

    That's quite a nice piece of work, intriguing to look at as well as use.

    I confess to some thoughts about stepping up to 8x10 myself. But so far I've been working with either 4x5, for which I have a dozen holders owned since dinosaurs roamed the earth, or roll film. That allows me to go out and take a dozen or more shots on a major trek. If I do a big one, I'd like to use 8x10 holders, for which the going rate is a bit off-putting -- but then, it's a hobby, so it might still happen! (I've been looking at ePrey occasionally.) I figure this year I will try and hone in on the paper negative process which has been a little dodgy for me so far, and maybe next year do some heavy construction.

    Your results definitely offer some inspiration.

    I really like the chevy... the light leak is minimal not very noticeable. What a great looking camera! The one I'm working on will be incredibly boring compared to this work of art!

    love your camera ( and the work made from it ! )
    the woodcuts and silk screens are beautiful ...
    the eye means so many different things,
    all seeing, all knowing, window to the world
    and it also keeps away evil spirits ..

    very cool !

    Beautiful, Bill!
    Question... (though I think the answer is no...) Does the graphic on the side depict the actual angle of view of your camera? The reason I ask is that even though when I built my camera I knew intellectually and theoretically what its specifications were, I found it really helpful to sketch the angle of view along the top of the box. It is one thing to stand behind a camera with the understanding that you have 133 degrees coverage, but it immensely more helpful to have actual sight lines to follow in the field.
    Great work. It is very inspiring.
    Cheers,
    Tom

    The angle of view is almost exactly the same as a 28mm on my 35mm camera, so I use one of my spare bodies and lenses to estimate where I need to be. So far it has worked pretty well. Bill Barber
