My favorite pinhole camera was hacked from an old Agfa Billy Record.

Really like Barry's sunrise shot too.

And Mike's hacked Agfa is great! What's the effective focal length of this, Mike? Gives great results and I bet the camera takes up almost no space. Tempting to try doing this myself for a pinhole I can slip into a bag (taking up less space than my boxy zeroimage).

I think the hole to film plane distance is about 38mm. Adapting a film camera for pinhole use takes care of a number of functional issues including film advance and shutter release. I've also gotten pretty good results from putting pinholes in little plastic p&s cameras.

Thanks! It's a nice fov from those images above. You put the pinhole behind the leaf shutter, I assume?

Might have to go troll eBay for one of these to play with.

I did have the pinhole behind the shutter initially, but got some vignetting from the lens mount. So, I moved the pinhole out front after those pictures were made of the camera. I also do not any longer use the accessory viewfinder. The built-in finder on the camera doesn't show much of what will get on film, but it does help me find the center of the view I want.

Was thinking of an RSS 6x6, but inspired by mconnealy's modified Agfa Billy I may well take a look on eBay myself. I need to do my homework, I'm wondering if a MF folder would work.

Just to clarify a bit, the Agfa Billy is a medium format folder. I removed the bellows from mine, hacksawed a hole in the front cover and mounted the shutter there. I used some foam sheets on the inside to seal up any possible light leaks. The cable release and tripod sockets are helpful with exposures which are usually around a second or two on sunny days.

I made a lens cap pinhole for my Pentax 6x7. It hasn't been very impressive:

Excellent work! The Mottweiler produces nice images. Tempting! (I'm a sucker for custom pinhole cameras.)

Thanks Kevin, yes the Mottweiler cameras are a work of art, expensive, but if you want something unique and heirloom quality you can't beat Kurt's designs.

Amen to that. Really nice, Steve. 35mm film I assume?

A few more of mine, same camera and film as above: Fog and Sunrise, Barjarg; Dusk, Barjarg; Amanita muscaria.

Thanks Kevin and Barry. I'm currently using a Skink Pinhole Pancacke 0,18mm on an EM5 MFT camera. I have another Skink on order for my Leica M. I use both analogue and digital Ms so it will be interesting to see the results with film. At the moment I'm using the digital experience to help me align my vision to pinhole scenes.

Love your photos you've just posted Barry. Stunning atmospherics in the first one.

A friend made me a pinhole camera with an equivalent focal length of 11mm. I was absolutely blown away trying it for the first time yesterday. Shot on 4x5 Bergger Pancro 400 semi-stand developed in Rodinal 1:100 for an hour.

Nice work, Charles. Can I ask what diameter the pinhole is? The image has lovely central sharpness, and the expected light fall-off toward the edges from such a short pinhole-film distance. Incredibly wide for 4x5 format, but the wideangle effect is marvelous.

Thanks Barry - I'll ask Jim Lycett who made it what the size is, the aperture is f170 and focal length 37mm. He makes them deliberately to be as wide an angle as possible - that one we were at 2 metres from the front of the engine and could probably have been one metre closer!

Edit - just used the formula in his book and the hole is 0.22 mm in diameter.

A forest dam formerly used for fire fighting, now overgrown with algae and pondweed. A delightful spot. Same camera and film as above.

Steam engines featuring a lot on my first pinhole outing - I need to get closer than 2m next time!

The Rotunda at Stowe. Only 2 second exposure so there is an artefact of my finger opening and closing the shutter (interior of the dome), but little could be done to stop that. I'm learning what I can and can't shoot with this and the distances. Shot on Bergger Pancro 400 4x5 and developed in Rodinal 1:25.

My WPPD submission, taken on 28 April 2019.


Ransom Road by KevinL, on Flickr



Taken on the same day, but not submitted to WPPD.


Flowers in the Breeze by KevinL, on Flickr


Both images made with an Agfa Clack that has been converted to a pinhole. I used a commercial laser drilled pinhole (0.34mm) for this conversion. With roughly a 67-68mm focal length, that puts the camera at f/194. I really like the curved film plane in th Clack; it does a great job of keeping a more even exposure. The Clack is fairly compact too, which is another bonus. It also has a super-smooth film advance. I'm quite pleased with this camera and this may become a regular user.

Great images, Kevin. My first camera was an Agfa Clack, a great little camera. I've often thought of getting another one for reasons of nostalgia.

Here is my WWPD entry for this year, an old country cemetery now with a busy freeway beside it. I made the camera to take 5x12 inch dental x-ray film a friend gave me. To prevent light falloff at the ends I decided on a curved film plane. And because any tilting of the camera causes the horizon line to curve, I added 15mm rise and fall to the pinhole mount.

0.5mm pinhole, 130mm from film plane, f/260. Kodak Panoramic Dental Film film developed in Pyrocat HD.
