The Ilford Obscura Pinhole Camera is a 4 x 5" format camera that accepts either sheet film or photo paper to create unique imagery that exhibits nearly limitless depth of field and requires no focusing. The camera's design holds film or paper in position in the rear of the body and positions it as such to create a small border surrounding the image.
It features an 87mm focal length to provide a wide-angle perspective similar to that of a 26.1mm lens on a 35mm-format camera. The 0.3mm chemically-etched pinhole provides an approximate aperture of f/290 and a magnetic locking shutter allows for controlled exposures. The shutter rotates either clockwise or counter-clockwise for right or left-handed operation, and a tripod bushing is incorporated into the camera body for use with any standard tripod.
