    Self built "box" camera because I didn't like the angle of view for any of the "commercial" built cameras. About 140mm FL on a Mamiya 645 film back, so I can do 645 and 135 films with the backs that I own. I've dropped pictures of the early version in here before. Haven't used it in many months now and need to find the motivation again.

    Holy pinhole GAS Joe! That is one impressive collection. Post some images in the gallery when you get a chance. I think we'd all love to see some of them.

    Also don't forget the World Pinhole Day Print Exchange.

    They have "brands" now ?!?!?!?
    I make my own. I currently have a 4X5, a 5X7, an old Kodak 6X9 folder converted to a 70mm FL, a 3 1/4 X 4 1/4" Spamera (Spam can) and an anamorphic number made out of an aluminum salt shaker. I've made others, out of old box cameras and such, but have given them to others to enjoy.

    Sorry for the poor editing! It should read:
