Product Highlights
  • 75mm/3" Lens
  • Wide Angle

The mahogany 4 x 5" Pinhole Camera from Lensless features a 3" lens. Lensless Cameras are constructed of different woods. Each model has a tiny hole (1/64" or smaller) precisely drilled in the front panel. The shutter is simply a small hinged metal plate that the photographer swings up and down to begin and end the exposure. The imitated focal length is determined by the length of the camera. The format is determined by the size of the back of the camera, which accepts the film holder. Since it is designed to accept a sheet film holder, there is no need to load the camera in the dark.

This is a mahogany, 4 x 5" Pinhole Camera, with a focal length equivalent of 75mm, which is a wide angle lens for this format. Average exposure in bright, noon-day sun is 4 seconds, using 400 ISO film.

      Comments about Lensless 4 x 5" Pinhole Camera (Mahogany):

      After 14 years photographing (6 of which have been doing digital) I decided to make a change for good. I have received this camera after doing some research and I really love it. It is beautifully made and works great (despite its simplicity). It is a good learning step I thought before I really build a bigger one myself.

      I have tried it with a Polaroid i545 holder and some Type 72 sheets as well as I am doing paper negatives. Still on the learning curve about exposure times, but the images I am getting are phenomenal.

      Thanks.
