I have been thinking about making a curved film plane camera using plumbers pipes. Then why not test the layout by making a Guinness-Cam.
Stage one buy a can of Guinness and drink the contents .
Most of the can cameras use paper negatives, I didn't want it that easy..
Don't like the idea of paper negatives,some modification to the can will be needed, .
The focal length would only be 65mm if the pinhole was on the outside of the can . I wanted 90-95mm , so some creative woodwork will be needed.

Would a can of Fosters work?
The beer in the 24 oz can? That might be fun to empty a few of those puppies. :)

Try green x-ray film. ASA 200, and great tones in HC-110 1:50 for 5 mins
Frankly if I need the can I'd prefer to avoid filtering the contents through my kidneys first, and just pour it down the toilet. But then it's been at least 20 years since I've had a Fosters.
