    Shift pinhole camera (progress report)

    ...and the shutter pre-assembled for testing. The four bolts will be attached to the front standard later. Not as nice as originally intended, but working :-)

    Hi, I continued to postpone this project for a long time, mainly for not being satisfied with a viewfinder idea. The viewfinder I originally intended to use would be pretty exact but really clumsy and I always wanted to keep the camera as compact as possible. Finally, I adopted another viewfinder idea (more on that later) and yesterday I have assembled the camera. So the project is now about 95% complete -- just waiting for the viewfinder, which will be independent and versatile, and for a cold shoe.

    Front view. 6x7 cm, 37 mm, f/165.
    Vertical and horizontal shift 20 mm.
    The shutter is controlled by a cable release.

    Nice progress you've made, looking forward to seeing first light images. It's fun to come back to a project that's been sitting around incomplete for a time, gives one a sense of accomplishment.

    Just feeling I am owing something about this project. The camera was finished as presented, but I was kind of disappointed with it -- I cannot say why exactly, it was rather a feeling of "overengineering"... Ended up dismantled, some parts will be recycled.
