    This was posted over in rec.photo.digital but I thought you guys would
    get more of a kick out of it than the digital crowd.

    I can't believe they are making a negative unless they are planning to
    build the world's largest enlarger :) Can't believe you could even
    contact print it. Must be an error in the article. Seems like they
    would be going direct to positive, doesn't it?

    Anyway, you've got to admit is one heck of a big camera.

  2. Pat spake thus:
    Nope; all signs are that they're going to make a fabric negative.
    Shoot, once they get that negative, I'd grant them any prize for their
    accomplishment; they could just take a digital picture of the negative
    and invert it (and probably will). Still takes nothing away from the
    audacity and scale of the project.

    And a pinhole camera, no less. Though in this case the hole is rather
    large to be called a pinhole. Another big one is here:

  4. Turn a hotel room into a pinhole camera ... well, obscura ...
    and take a picture of the projected image:

    I sure hope they get the exposure right. No second takes.

    Presumably, they could use a "test strip" or two.
