simply functioning ancient tool is used even in our days likewise
it was used many hundred years ago. This magic box
is one of the most useful tools to get familiarized with the
of photography, but many photographers who have been photographing
on a deeper level, explore it and enjoy it. As simple is its
operation and usage, as easy it is to construct, even at home.
My intention is not to deprive anybody of the joy of photographing
with his own made pinhole camera, I only would like to help
making photos with a camera obscura that is more practical,
versatile, and controllable. Furthermore my customer will
have an aesthetic, precisely built box.
cameras are made in any, even fully customized size along
with the accessories if necessary. Most common format is the
4x5 inch version that's back is constructed to be compatible
to the wide spread sheet film holders (Fideltiy, Lisco etc.),
and roll and Polaroid film holders for 4x5" format cameras.
that projects the outer world in the box is drilled in a very
thin metal film, so that it will have an orderly formed circular
shape, and its diameter will be optimal to the distance between
the plane of the pinhole and the film plane, thus insuring
the smallest circles of confusion, that is excellent picture
quality. The mount holding the drilled film is also for mounting
color filters. The depth of the box, which sets the camera
obscura's angle of view, must be determined by the costumer.
The F stop of the camera is precisely countable,
so even the first image can be exposed correctly.
