A high quality 4x5" format pinhole camera, made in the UK, complete with exposure calculator and 30 sheets of film and paper. The front part of the camera slides into the back and holds the film or paper in place and a magnetic shutter gives precise control of exposure. A great way to discover the fun of pinhole photography, with a product which is built to last.
Made from robust expanded PVC, the Obscura consists of two parts. The front part slides inside the rear to hold the film or paper in place, and is retained by a magnet. This also creates a neat black border around the image. 1/4" tripod connection.
The 0.3mm pinhole is chemically etched on a stainless steel plate, and has an effective aperture of f248 with a focal length of 87mm. This accurate forming of the pinhole gives a high quality image with even illumination.
Exposure is controlled by a swivelling shutter, held in the open and closed positions by small magnets. Operation is thus positive and smooth.
Only one picture may be exposed at a time, and to facilitate taking several shots, a spare light-proof box to store exposed pictures is also supplied. You will need a changing bag to transfer film or paper to and from the camera - we recommend the large Kood bag which gives plenty of room.
Keep your Obscura plain and simple, or customise it with the supplied sheet of transfer logos.
The camera is supplied with:
* 20 sheets Ilford Multigrade IV RC paper (gives a negative image when processed)
* 10 sheets Ilford Delta 100 black and white film (tank process)
* Self-assembly Exposure Calculator
* Spare light-proof storage box
Also available again is Harman Direct Positive paper. This is the same 4x5" format, and when exposed and dish developed produces a positive image. Ideal if prints of this size are what's required.
