I'll like to make my own pinhole camera, and I had a great time browsing through the other threads seeing what the rest have done. I'm quite a greenhorn when it comes to woodworking and heavy duty tools, but would like to give it a try. I've decided on making a wooden camera that uses 120 film. But what should I use to make the film transport system? In addition, I'll like to make it a panoramic camera if possible. I also want the camera to double as a bag when not used as a camera, as I'm quite a bag lady. :P What is the easiest way to create such a bag? What must I remember to do? I'll appreciate any hints for a newbie like me. Many thanks in advance!

I'm not sure about doubling as a bag, but you van still try to cover the thing with suede, alligator leather or I don't know what. Anyway, it' a panoramic wooden 120 rollfilm camera, the one of Marie-Noëlle Leroy! Have a small first look here:

or contact Marie-Noëlle directly, she is a member here.
Succes,

Thanks, Taco, for the link. I'm wondering if it'll be a good idea to use an existing wooden box/bag instead. Does anyone know whether there are any articles on makinf rollfilm pinhole cameras? Thanks.

Go to this link:

and scroll down to nearly the middle (The latest experiment.....). If you find a suitable wooden box, you just need a little work to transform it
