The Baltic Birch 11 x 14" Pinhole Camera from Lensless features a 6" 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 focal length imitated 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 or Polaroid film holder, there is no need to load the camera in the dark.
This is a Baltic Birch, 11 x 14" Pinhole Camera, with a focal length equivalent of 150mm, which is a super-wide angle for this format.
- Simplify photography to its basics: Composition and Exposure.
- Depth of field is of no concern; everything in front of the camera is equally in focus.
- Use cut film holders, roll film holders or Polaroid, Fuji, or Kodak film holders. No need to load the camera in the dark.
