Glad you guys liked them.

Sorry was a little tied up the past few days, here's some photos of the camera:


This is the inside of it, you can see the foam that splits the 6x7 frame into 2


The front with the "patented spring activated shutter" that has jammed ;p


Here's a side view to show how compact it is...


Assembled view..

Oh yes, I omited the red rubber band that makes sure the pinhole section doesn't fall off..

wooohoo, finally we're seeing the images from the cute little gaffered cams u shown us at Red Dot Museum.....more images please.

The images look very soft. I guess it's due to the hole that is made by poking through with a needle.

yar its 99.9999999999999999% due to the non-lasered cut hole.

but in a sense, i quite like its soft effect. but this roll was testing the exposure so that i'd have a rough guage.

I'm going to run a colour roll thru it maybe tomorrow ;)

Stay tuned :D
