I still fail to see any relationship to World Pinhole Day.
Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!
Nothing beats a great piece of glass!
I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Well, I will go out with my 8x10 box that day and take some photographs. Too bad that some of you made so bad experiences with a pinhole exchange. I would like to share some photographs. So if someone is interested ... send a PM.
I also had disappointing experiences when I took part in the exchange a couple of years ago, although one person did send a beautiful pl/pt print.
Maybe I will try again with my 5x4 bug-eye, if I can get it working better. At the moment, one of the pinholes is bigger than the others so the images are not all exposed the same.
Tom Miller just posted an informative post regarding WPPD on 26 April this year. Look for it here on APUG.

I haven't been around for a long time due to rebuilding a house and making 2 babies. But the house is almost ready and I have a new operational darkroom up and running.
For the second time I will invite 2 fellow photography students who became lifetime friends, along with their women and children.
I just got a Skink Pinhole Pancake from eBay that fits my Linhof so we can waste some of my last Polaroid 55/59 sheets.
And I also found 3 Pola Image packs for which I will make another camera.
That way we can easily process them by putting the pack into the camera after each exposure.
Should be fun.
I'm giving my students extra credit for shooting pinholes this weekend. One has taken my cookie-tin camera and shooting panorama paper-negatives, one has a 4x5 pinhole and one has an 8x10. Should be interesting to see what they get!
