    do i all!!!!!!!!!!! damn it!

    hello


    If you are doing it, do it all! you can build a camera obscura and do some pinhole or even use a ruined retroprojector, use it´s lens (around 300mm) add a diafragm to improve quality and luminosity, to the fotosensitive support you can do a calotipe or even better a wet collodion, then print it on cianotype, albumine, gum or something similar then you should get really fullfilled as a photographic image producer! strangely if you do it more or less wright you´ll get some good quality pictures, or not...
    vive la resistance!

    You're welcome!

    On the other hand, if you want something pinhole specific, the spamera is also interesting.

I thought a perfect match would be some of your pinhole cams, but I expect they would be difficult to use on a pitching sailboat.
    Great!!! Found it:

    Well, we might use a garbage camera with a real lensset to a fixed focus.

    Disposable cereal boxes are the classic building materials for pinhole cameras:

    The Populist (made from cereal box cardboard)
    Quaker Oats pinhole camera (made from cylindrical oatmeal boxes)

    What I love about the Populist is that it looks like garbage. It might be the most theft-proof camera around!

    Hah, fun idea! You could then toss your pinhole camera into a pile of trash (or on the street somewhere) and let it photograph its surroundings for a suitable length of time before retrieving it for processing. Maybe a photograph of the camera taking its photo to accompany the image from the camera itself.

    The 'Plastiki' is a modern take on Thor Heyerdahl's 'Kon-Tiki' . If memory serves, he built a papyrus craft, and sailed the Atlantic, to prove that ancients had the capability to explore the Americas(or something like that).
