    Wooden Camera 6x6

    Built of compressed wood, 5mm in thickness. Format is 6x6cm, focal length 45mm. An old M42 screwmount is fitted to the front of the camera, so I can use my bodycap-pinholes (f220, f320, f450). A red window from a dead Agfa Click is glued into the back. The shutter is a magnetic paperholder on a metal ring.

    Elegantly simple and neat. That's the way a photographer's camera should be made.

    eddie, Icutted a piece of wood to fit into the spool-slot and glued a wing nut around the wood. Light leak prevention by using black leather.

    Who needs a Zero if you can build one of these? Very nice. My hat is off to you camera builders, especially after having one from Ralph Young to use.

    very nice

    How do you get all the inside measurements to get a 6x6 photo and to position the red window?
