Topic: TEST SHOTS ADDED--Pinhole Camera from Graflex XL Parts
Well, this thing has finally come together. It's got a light leak I'm working on, but it's pretty much ready to go.
I made it from a graflok back and 2-1 inch spacers intended for a Graflex XL.
One of the spacers was sacrificed to provide a mount for the lens board. The lens board will snap on and off (the conical buttons in front retain it). The lens board is a piece of anodized aluminum cut to fit and bolted to the spacer.
Add that to the other 1 inch spacer and graflok back and you have a versitile pinhole camera. The FL is about 45mm when you include the spacer and where the pinhole mounts on the shutter. I can add another 1/2 inch spacer if I want a longer FL.
The pinhole is a .25mm laser drilled hole mounted on a larger aluminum disk and retained in the shutter via friction and a large rubber gasket. I have other holes I could use if I wanted to match the hole to a different FL.
As you can see, it'll take a roll film back (6x9 is mounted) or a polaroid back.
Apperture with .25mm and 45mm is about f192.
The shutter is a Prontor Press. Speeds are T, B and 1-125. With the long exposures necessary, I'll use it mostly on T setting.
I have a couple of 21mm finders laying around, I just need to figure out a handy cold shoe mount. In the mean time, I just point it and use a finder in my hand to approximate the field of view.
Now all I need is an opprotunity to shoot something.
