Pinhole Factory MDF DIY 5x4inch cameras - Two new budget priced 5x4inch flat packed cameras, with focal lengths of 50mm f/180 and 90mm f/300.
These cameras are great for either newcomers, students or experienced photographers who wish to enjoy large format pinhole cameras at a modest cost.
The PC50 and PC90 have been very accurately laser cut out of 6mm MDF and can be assembled by almost anyone, to make these very robust 5x4 studio/field pinhole cameras.
Both of these cameras are supplied with brass mounted, double etched 0.3mm pinhole lenses, a sliding shutter, two tripod mounts, laser scored sighting lines to gauge what is in the field of view and an exposure calculator.
These cameras will accept most double dark slides and Polaroid backs for instant results in B&W or colour.
The PC50 and PC90 are available now at a cost of 55 and 60 respectively, with postage and packing included from P&L Solutions.
There is a prize every month for the next three months, starting May, of a Brass Exposure calculator worth 20 for the best decorated/painted PC MDF camera kit from the Pinhole Factory. To enter just email a picture of your camera to P&L solutions with your name and address. The draw will take place on the last day of every month.
WWPD, World Wide Pinhole Day is almost here, 30th April, so get your pinhole cameras out, take an image on the day and email it to www.pinholeday.org
