    6x7 pinhole camera made from koni omega 220 back... my first try

    Ok so i've wanted to make a pinhole for a while but I wanted to do it the "right way"... It came to me that i could use a junker back that doesn't work on the camera anymore... plus it's 6x7 so that's pretty convenient... So I measured the length to the film plane and it was about 35mm so I used a calculator and calculated I needed about a .24mm aperture to cover the 6x7 area...

    worked out pretty well... I can use the dark slide as the shutter or i can use a piece of tape up front... plus the back has a counter on it and an advance knob to measure precisely to the next frame...

    If anybody has used a koni omega film back you know how cool the film advance is...

    Check it out: (excuse the lone piece of tape at the bottom i'm glueing a tripod socket as I was taking the pics)

    Excellent! Looks as though you've got a very good result. I too have enjoyed adapting "real" cameras to get decent film handling.
