Ilford 1174029 overview

  • 1Description

The Ilford Obscura Pinhole Camera Kit 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. This kit includes 10 sheets of 4 x 5" Ilford Delta 100 Professional film, and 20 sheets of 4 x 5" Ilford Multigrade IV RC paper. 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.

Also included in this kit is a simple exposure calculator, a set of stickers to decorate the camera, and a 3-tray light-tight box for your exposed film and paper.

    Obscura Pinhole Camera Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't stay on the dark This is not a camera for an usual purpose. But if you are looking to capture an impression, it is the right tool. Ilford has put the right materials on this kit. You'll just need a good dark bag in addition for a proper use. Then you will be able to push your imagination to an other level.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Fun - but buy a changing bag This is a great product - but you have to be willing to work at it. I love how simple Ilford has made playing around with old photo techniques. Truth be told, anyone can make one of these - but it's nice to know there's a company that is out there making these in one simple package. IT's great to explore this type of photo making.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Easy to learn Pinhole Photograph The makers at Ilford got this model right. It was simple, fun and easy to operate. Explanations were clear and easy to follow in the supplied booklet. Would be good if they offered a complete set with all the processing chemicals in crystalline form with dilution instructions.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and simple A great design except its hard to reload in the changing bag - you really need a tent to be at all quick and effective.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly disappointed The camera is great, shipping very fast, but in the the package the promised direct positive paper was substituted with another bw paper.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect for beginning the pinhole camera experience. Timing is everything with this. Make sure you research before making a purchase. Pinhole cameras are super fun but developing and then scanning a useable image can be a bit tricky. There are some nuances with available light, and the exposure time that will take practice to get a truly spectacular image. This type of imaging is trial and error and lots of learning along the way. The product itself is super easy to use and seems very well built. The kit comes with paper and film and a decent guide to getting started. You pretty much have everything's you need to get started. Just make sure you have the means to develop soon after exposure. The guide leave she a little to be desired and should honestly have more details regarding exposure timelines and reciprocity. This doesn't have to be detailed just something that can provide a bit more insight. The exposure wheel needs to be cut out and assembled and is a rough guide to exposure times. Keep in mind it does require tweaking here and there and is by no means a perfect tool to use. This kit however is perfect for anyone looking to get in to the pinhole camera game without building one on your own.
