    Putting it in is easy... either put light-sensitive papr in via a changing bag or in a dark room. I usually put mine in darkroom lor. Film a bit more difficult.

    The other way to do it, is to modified existing camera and load and unload film as normal. I have three of such cameras with me... but not as satisfying as a canned pinhole.

    What is light-sensitive paper? Not film?
    Where to get it?
    Does it mean that it will turn black when exposed to light?
    What do you do to stop it from turning to a black piece of paper when you are done with the capturing of the photo...
    I'll guess that the exposure timing is trial and error... Is it?

    Light sensitive paper are just photo paper that we use for darkroom lah! It's really dirt cheap, and both me and quekky have a lot of them lor... hahah~!
    The paper like film are coated with silver compound that are activated when light falls on it. After exposure, basically take them out in a darkroom, and process them directly in trays lah! Very simple, if you have access to darkroom! Hahaa~!

    If not, just convert cameras into pinhole camera lah! If you're interested, I can show you my modified cams...

    And yes, the exposure are through guessing. It's also in pinhole where you'll understand what reciprocity failure actually means. Don't believe me? Ask Khairi!

    There is supposed to be some compensation for it right?

    I'm not sure if this is the place for such a message, but couldn't find a more suitable thread. *cough*

    I'm new!

    Hah. Been lurking for some time now, finally getting my own camera for school (or that's my excuse, anyway). Just wanted to say that the forums have been a huge help! Now I realise how much I don't know.

    It's like I've learnt enough to tell me I know nothing. How depressing. -.- Heh.

    hi podeam....here's a secret.

    none of us really know all that much about photography anyway.

    so, don't be depressed!
