    Wide angle with filter attachment.

    Been working on building a camera that is easy enough to use that I could loan it to fellow photographers with no pinhole experience and get a minimum of phone calls about using it.
    Getting there.
    Recently Decided I am tired of holding my bw filters or taping them to the front of the cam so here is the result of that.
    Uses a 52mm step-up ring.
    It also comes close to being simple enough to be a loaner.
    25mm fl. 0.2mm hole. 6x6 neg.

    Will post a few shots from the first roll in a bit.

    Nice camera. I take it the shutter is just a lens cap? How do you change the filter without exposing a frame?

    The shutter is a thin piece of copper in a channel on the inside of the camera.
    Has a routered slot on the side to accommodate it.
    Here are a couple of pics. I'll see if I can find one from the build.

    OK here are some from the build.
    The track that the shutter slides in is a playing card laminated to two pieces of a cereal box then cut to fit.
    Hope this makes sense. Sorry to bother you with all of the details. My wife likes to remind people not to encourage me.

    Many thanks for showing the details of your camera. The camera is built very well and looks great. You have to design and build a lot more nice cameras! :-)

    I love your shutter design. Lovely! I'm interested to see images taken with a filter.

    That is a neat shutter design; simple, ellegant and completely internal. Well worth a look at.
