    From my new camera

    I recently converted a cute little bakelite 127 Baby Brownie camera to pinhole. I used a .200 mm ems aperture on the 50 mm focal distance for f250. The first roll that I ran through it was some long expired Sears panchromatic B&W film (made in Belgium). It was rated at iso 100, so I metered it at iso 50.

    The first image is in my living room.

    The next image is my breakfast with a high school acquaintance that I haven't seen for 40 years. This exposure was more than one hour.

    And finally, the mandatory double exposure for a sheet film guy who is trying to operate a manual roll film camera.

    127 film is as scarce as hen's teeth, so I have cut down 120 and also have used 35mm

    I found the Sears film as a single roll on ebay. Next I will be shooting some Efke R100, purchased from Freestyle. As far as I can find, there is only this b&w, one IR film, and one color slide film available on 127 spools. I hate to resort to slitting . . . . . I don't think that would be worth the trouble.

    Pretty nice look to the photos. It is interesting working between sheet film, pinhole roll film, digital auto focus/exposure and a lens roll film camera. The Pentax 6X7 won't let you multiple expose but doesn't autofocus; the 6X7 pinhole will double expose but doesn't need to focus or a meter; the sheet film pinhole is a lot like the roll film pinhole but is easier to remember not to double expose. The digital? Fun for photos of the grand kids and birds.......

    Marv, you forgot that digital is essential for photos of our pinhole cameras!

    Nice photos Earl, the breakfast one is real nice.
