    I just made myself a pinhole camera from cardboard box 4x5 35mm as an experiment to see how the photos come out. Right now I am using Kodak Professional B&W ISO 100 Negative film.

    What are some slower film speed that I could try to experiment with besides 35mm/ISO 100?
    I ask because I'm thinking of making a three or multiple pinhole camera.

    100 iso is about as slow as you will be able to obtain freely apart from Ilford Pan F plus which is 50 iso.

    It hardly matters with pinhole photography what the film speed is unless you are deadly serious with precision pinhole cameras.

    Much of the fun in pinhole photography is being able to use any old film where B&W is the easy option in that you can process it yourself.

    Adox CHS 25 and CHS 50, possibly Efke PL 25 and PL 50

    I'm unsure what format you are using as you say 4x5 35mm, but here are links where both 4x5 sheet film and 35mm cans are available

    In the UK from http://www.ag-photographic.co.uk/adox-film-11-c.asp

    In the US perhaps from http://www.digitaltruth.com/store/cart/4-x-5-Sheet-Film/

    or 35mm http://www.digitaltruth.com/store/cart/35mm-Film/

    You could even save money by using photographic enlarging paper and then scan the developed pic.

    if you want to slow it down, you could always use a ND filter with it possibly but other than that, I agree with Ken with using "any old film"
