Lensless WA3B overview

  • 1Description

The baltic birch 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 baltic birch, 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.

No Bells or Whistles
Simplify photography to its basics: Composition and Exposure.
Focus-Free
Depth of field is of no concern; everything in front of the camera is equally in focus.
Easy to Load
Uses cut film and Polaroid holders. No need to load the camera in the dark.

    Lensless WA3B reviews

    4 x 5" Pinhole Camera (Baltic Birch) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the simple box fool you. Prior to this camera, I bought the another brand 45 pinhole camera that proved to be a disappointment. When I opened the box on this LENSLESS CAMERA MFG pinhole camera, I was struck by how brilliant the design is of this camera - yet it is almost stone-age technology. I ran out and shot 4 images right away, ran home and processed and scanned the images. The images are fantastic and the angle of view is ideal. The manual is limited,they could have spent a few more minutes explaining for beginners. OVERALL I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA FOR PINHOLE!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple and beautiful bought this camera to start a new project and chose it mainly because it looked sturdy, had 2 tripod mounts (bottom and side), and it took 4x5 holders. so far it has performed wonderfully and has taken great pictures. the shudder is easy to move, but stiff enough to stay in place when open and the adaptable back is really easy to use with the holders or putting the film directly in. its constructed well, a little smelly from the stain, but that disappeared in a day or two, plus it looks really good while in use and sitting on the shelf next to all my other cameras.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera This pinhole camera has a nice, simple design, is well made and takes sharp photos. It's sturdy, light and easy to use. Film backs fit easily into the back of the camera and are held in place securely with wood rollers. There have been no issues with light leaks. The camera comes with very little in the way of instructions or technical information, though, you can find more info on the company website.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this camera! Was considering this over another major brand and I'm glad I chose this one. You will need to have 4x5 sheet film holders to use this camera. Yes that requires that you spend a bit more money but the convenience of loading a few holders keeps you from having to break out the changing bag after each exposure. The seal between the holders and camera body is light-tight and I can see that the strip padding would be easily replaced if it becomes worn out.An added plus is that there are two 1/4-20 tripod sockets so mounting in landscape or portrait orientation is easily done. I can't speak to the light-tightness of the lens cover as I always keep my dark slide in place just before the exposure but it appears to do the job.If you are looking for a pinhole camera to shoot large format and are not interested in making one of your own then this is the best bet. Great construction and a great conversation piece when you are out shooting as it catches a lot of attention!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Put Together Pinhole Camera Recently purchased a Lensless 4x5 Pinhole and was pleased with its construction. The camera is well build easy to operate. So far my exposures have been accurate and while still giving me the look I expect from a Pinhole photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased indeed! Received my Lensless 4X5 Pinhole camera in excellent condition. It appears to be very well made with tight joints and beautiful finish that looks much nicer than the photos of it on the website. My Fidelity/Elite film holders fit perfectly. I cannot find any flaws at all. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I really love the old technology when it comes to photography. This is one of the most simple and most creatively exciting. I hope to continue to play on such a simplified camera. Keeping me humble and creatively agile. Thank you.
