    A short presentation... (Introduction)

    My name is Trond Kjetil Holst, I have been using pinhole cameras since 1984, so I have my 30th anniversary as a pinhole photographer this year. I live in northern Norway where the summer is light and the winter is dark. I have built many cameras, mostly of cardboard or foamboard, but a few of wood as well. Most of them use 4x5" film holders. I use film all the time. My biggest camera (so far) is "The Giant Mobile Camera". Image size 125x250cm (50x100").

    I hope to become more active here at APUG, to be honest I have been "sleeping too long".

    BTW: I never thought to see an "auto-focus" pinhole camera this large ...

    Auto-focus? Pleeze. But I am wondering, where is the pinhole?

    I would rather say ALL-focus camera.

    The pinhole is in the center of the black dot:

    In fact it is an aperture from an old non-working Compur

    How do you get out without exposing the film?
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt
