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.

Thanks Ricoh and Papercut. Pinholes react nicely straight into the sun.
Some great work here - Steve, Mike, PRJ.

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.
Cheers, JC

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

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.
