    From the PepsiCam

    Shot some expired Velvia through my pinhole camera (the PepsiCam). I think it worked out pretty well.

    very cool little project.

    i'm impressed by how sharp the last picture is too actually.

    Thank you, I saved what I thought was best for last. I was quite pleased with the way it came out. I have five more rolls of expired Velvia 50 in the freezer, and I believe they'll all be going through the PepsiCam.

    What about the star? I'm curious what that cam looks like!

    It's just called the PepsiCam because I finished a can of Pepsi Throwback and then decided "I'm going to make a pinhole camera." I used the Pepsi can for the metal.

    Wow. It's pure genius. I thought only brass shim stock will work, not Pepsi cans.

    I did take some emery cloth to the inside of the can to get it as thin as I felt comfortable with before drilling the hole with a pin tip.

    Very cool job! The shot with the car really shows off the depth of field available.

    Thank you, my next project will be a 4x5 pinhole camera with about a 75 degree FOV. My enlarger is an old Beseler CB7, and I have 4x5 negative carriers, along with a Jobo tank with 4x5" reels so clearly I must get myself a camera to put that to use. College kid on the GI Bill budget dictates a pinhole fill the role until I fall into the right deal on a field camera.

    I made a 4x5 pinhole camera this spring for WPPD. I already owned some 4x5 filmholders and shim stock, so my bigger expenses were a (lifetime supply of) brass blackening liquid and two T-nuts for horizontal and vertical tripod mounting. (The store was out of zinc plated nuts so I bought stainless!) A basement and garage/workshop full of miscellaneous miscellany supplied scraps of birch plywood and other material. I think it was some careful attention (and unusually good luck) with making the actual pinhole, but I believe this year's effort gave the best results I have ever gotten with a pinhole camera.

    Anyway, it's fun stuff.
