another camera in the making....Cinco-Seven
I'm making it out of some plywood scraps in my wood shed/workshop and hope to have it finished by the end of next week and early enough to practice a few shots with before World Pinhole day rolls along..
It will be about f/250, with a depth of 4.5 inches. This should give me an exposure length of about 90 seconds for Harman Direct Positive paper, and about 4 seconds for ASA 100 film.
Anyway, a couple of thoughts came to mind today during construction:
I really wish someone made spray on felt...in black of course!
Cookie dough looks just like wood filler...dare I say I used cookie dough today to fill a hole in a void in the plywood!
You can NEVER have enough clamps.
Sanding surfaces smooth is my least favorite part of woodworking.
My router scares the bejeebies outta me.
I can still hear the phone ring over the sound of the table saw.
I wish tripod sockets/inserts came pre-installed in boards.
An emery board works great as a fine file in tight spots.
I still have all my fingers!
Here's a shot of the camera so far.
