Key Features
  • 75mm/3"
  • Wide Angle
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.

question

Do you have any instructions on how to load the film in this camera. There was not any instructions with it. I know it must be simple, but how, with not exposing the film.

On the back end of the camera there is a rectangular piece of wood secured by 2 dowels. If one isn't using a cut film holder with the camera you simply mount the film to that rectangular piece of wood (needs to be loaded in the dark you may wish to practice using a spent sheet of film in the light first before going into the dark to load). If you are using a cut film holder or other back you just leave out the rectangular piece of wood and secure whatever film back you're using with the 2 dowels (film backs should also be loaded in the dark). Below is a link to recommended/optional cut film holder on our site for you to regard:http://bhpho.to/JAO6Ss
