Which Box Camera?

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Andrew McCall, Jan 30, 2004.

  1. Hi Folks,

    I have recently started a photography course at college, and on the
    first lesson the lecturer showed us a box/pinhole camera.

    These looked great fun to experiment with!

    I have looked on eBay and they seem to be pretty cheap too, but there
    are all sorts of different ones. The web is pretty thin in information
    about the pro's and con's of box/pinhole cameras, so I thought someone
    here could help me choose one to buy.

    I am after a cheap one that will still work and that can still be used
    today for "real" photography, even though its only experimental. Is
    there a one thats considered *the* box camera to get like someone might
    suggest the Nikon F5, or D1H etc. (please thats only an example, lets
    not get into Nikon vs Canon, Pentax etc. etc.)

    Any suggestions?!

    Why not just make one? I mean come on this is not rocket science is it or am
    I missing something here. Go to the library and look up camera obscura.

  3. I was planning to do this also, but wanted a ready made one to
    experiment with first.

    Building a computer and cooking a meal isn't rocket science, yet people
    still buy computers from Dell and buy oven ready meals you know!
