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
8Banners web site:
i recently purchased an Mb. terrific... can even be used hand-held with their shutter.
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.
I highly recommend these cameras.
