    What brand of pinhole camera do you have?

    I have a very simple one - a Daylab 4x5 pinhole camera. I saw it at the Photo Expo in NYC one year at the Daylab booth and ordered one. It takes the Polaroid i545 back. I thought it would make a good intro into the pinhole world.

    I remember making a shoebox pinhole when I was 10 or 11 for the school's science fair - how many of those have been made, eh?

    So whatbrand of pinhole do you have?

    Various. Zero Image, Lenless, Leonardo, as well as a pinhole shutter mounted in a lensboard for a 4x5 camera.

    Ultimately it's not about the camera us use, but whether the camera is the correct tool to achieve your vision. They are all good if you get the image you want. They are all bad if you can get your vision on film.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I have a handmade 4x5 camera made from a cigar box, built by fellow APUG'r Gustavo.

    'Brand' may be a bit tenuous :

    Canon (drilled out SLR body cap)
    Minox (modified Minox film box)
    Imation (the brand of floppy disc used for the shutter on my Horsehole 6x9 pinhole 'lens' panel)

    thebanana, what brand of cigar ? (extra points if Cuban )

    Great point.
    I started with a body cap on a Hasselblad, but wasn't satisfied. I feel a lot better with lensboards pinholes on the 4x5 or 5x7.
    I'm waiting for a new Satin Snow for my 8x10, but I'm convinced I'll end up using that for most of my pinhole shots.

    I made my pinhole out of a miniature, replica (replica of nothing, there was no similar original) Howdy Doody lunchbox.

    Ecuadoran, since Gustavo lives in the US, although a Cuban box wouldn't be hard to find up here

    I use one of Bryan Dahlberg's PhotonBox 4x10 cameras here . I have used paper negatives but generally use 4x10 Efke PL100 that I was able to get from J and C before they closed.

    Burke & James -- with an authenticke Dave Thomas pinhole lensboard.
    (See it here)

    If I can roust up some discipline and start cutting parts instead of designing it to death, I might have a Bronica SQhole by WPPD 2007. I was a bit afraid some interlocking might prevent operating the film advance with a mere body cap on my SQ-A, but a recent test with a roll of backing paper says it should be OK.
