I designed and built this camera with a lot of help from people in this forum and in the pinhole-discussion mailing list. *Thought I'd post some images of the finished box as a thank you and also let everyone know that sharing information is helpful. *Now for the real test - will it image?

Specs...
4x5 sheet format
83mm focal dist
homemade .38mm (or so) pinhole
ZeroImage cable shutter assembly (great stuff Zernike!)
Mahogany box with magnetic catch back
Brass hardware

Man, o man, o Mancer - if you make pictures half a well as you make cameras, then we are all in for a treat. Nice work. Now go out and shoot some film! Or some paper. TXP 320. J&C Pro 100. HP5. Ilford MG IV matte. FP4. Ektachrome. Bergger BPF 200. We need images. We are starved for art from Mancer.
