    A great introduction to pinhole photography

    For many the pinhole experience started with photographic paper and an oatmeal box. This is a step-up, the kit providing a means to easily create your own camera that uses 35mm film. The book is actually more of a companion publication, covering several forms of experimental photography instead of devoting itself to the DIY camera. In addition to the die-cut parts included, you'll need a little white glue, small spring clips and rubber bands. Once built, load a roll of 200 ISO film and go out on a sunny day. Experiment with different exposure times, and make a note for each frame so you'll know what worked best. What I like best about this camera kit is that it is designed to change pinholes, easily inserted from the inside of the front. So if you don't like the ones included, you can experiment with those you've made yourself from aluminum foil, pie pan or soda can material. Enjoy.

    A few flaws make it useless for beginners.

    The book is good but mostly irrelevant to the kit. The kit would be great with better instructions and properly-punched plates, but as-is, it's not plug-and-play at all.

    Half the book is examples of artistic and creative pinhole photography done by experts, (which sets sort of unrealistic expectations!) The rest of the book is practical information, but too technical for someone looking for advice on how to shoot with the included kit. The kit is not mentioned in the book at all.

    The kit comes with a few pages of instructions. The assembly instructions are good and it is easy to assemble, but it is supposed to come with two pre-punched pinhole plates (and one blank to make your own.) BUT the copy I bought had three plates, all a good deal smaller than the apertures listed in the directions (and not labeled at all). So the exposure tips on the back of the camera weren't even close. There's only a paragraph or two about how to actually use the camera. Recommended exposures for ISO200 film (why not the more common 100 or 400?) are listed on the camera itself, but totally wrong because the pinhole isn't as specified. Exposures listed in the book don't help if you don't know what size your pinhole is, and the pinhole sizes listed in the book don't even include the sizes that theoretically came with the camera. The book does explain how to determine the size of your pinhole, but it's a complicated procedure that involves a slide projector and blank slides. I only bought the kit because I figured the pre-drilled pinholes would eliminate the mystery of the pinhole size and shooting several rolls of film to figure out proper exposures. As it is, I shot 24 exposures in bright sunlight at a wide variety of exposures and only a few several-minute exposures are even visible on the film (the back of the camera says it should just be a couple seconds in bright sunlight!)

    So if the kit had come with the right plates and better exposure tips, It could have been five stars. i'm a bit of a photo nerd so I still like it, but I would never recommend it to a beginner, especially knowing that the plates may be mis-drilled.

    Great book, and great kit for anyone who has a slight knowledge

    Great book, and great kit for anyone who has a slight knowledge of how film works. Its pinhole photography, so don't expect perfection it is half the fun.
