    So, where does one buy these cameras ? eBay doesn't list any around here, and the website has prices, but doesn't seem to have an ordering page...

    That 4x5 sure looks good!

    As a followup on this; I tried to email the company a few days ago, and never got a reply.

    I have a Zero Image on loan, but I don't like it that much:
    + You can't put the camera on a table in landscape mode (the two elastic band pods are in the way)
    + You can't put the camera on a tripod in landscape mode with the fairly common Manfrotto quick release head -- doh! These elastic band pods again...
    + 25mm is a bit too wide for me, and I don't want to use a permanent extension to reach 50mm

    8 banners

    Hi,

    I just bought an 8-Banners pinhole camera (multi-format model Mb) directly from the company (http://www.8banners.com/). Received it in 4 days in Vermont, USA directly from Hong Kong. I did not have to pay any customs duty. Oliver Chan, the contact, is responsive and friendly.

    The camera is awesome - a true beauty of functionality, simplicity, design, engineering, manufacturing, and eye for detail.

    I just shot my first roll of film and developed the negatives using the "instant coffee and vitamin C" developer described on http://www.frugalphotographer.com/fo...edeveloper.htm

    I scanned the negatives with my HP 2450 flat bed scanner and enhanced, cropped, etc using the "gimp" program. Really good. The images are very sharp using the 0.2mm pinhole plate.

    How fun!

    I highly recommend these cameras.

    Steve

They are similar to the Zero Image cameras, of which I have both a 2000 and the 4X5. I've Googled and Dog Piled it and can't come up with an answer. Any ideas? Bill Barber

    I have purchased 2 cameras now from them, the Dragon II, and the Ma. The first one I found on eBay, then I got one directly from them. They are some very well built pinhole cameras, and unlike the wooden zero2000 I own, I don't have to worry about hurting these as much!
