    The Spirit

    I made this one for a friend.
    Made from the carton a bottle of Drambuie came in. The top and bottom are pressed tin, the circular carton is dense cardboard. Tripod bush in the bottom.
    Plastic angle strip is used for the film guide rails.
    Curved 5x4 film. It is not equidistant but close, average focal length is about 80mm.
    0.3mm pinhole made by dimpling and sanding in brass shim. About f260.
    The shutter is hinged to the body at one end and has a bit of tin plate glued into it and a magnet glued on the inside of the body to keep it shut.
