View Full Version : 120 roll film pinhole camera

01-29-2006, 06:45 PM
Here's a photo of a 120 camera I made some years ago. You can see a sample photo in my reply to Jill's post of earlier today on this camera making forum. The front and back are held together with a piece of elastic running from the 2 screws visible on top to 2 identical screws on the bottom. Advancing the film requires first depressing the interlock that is barely visible near the bottom left corner, then winding the film using the wheel on the left side. It takes quite a lot of thumb pressure to advance the film. This camera works great, though I haven't used it lately.

I agree, this is a very pretty construction. The shutter is especially well done.

It is a Bronica ETRS 120 back. The amazing thing is that I found the wooden box (some kind of souvenir that one of my kids was throwing out) and it fit the front of the film back without any resizing. It was a perfect fit.
