Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Adventurous photographers can go old school with this guide. Photographer Keeney offers specific instructions for a wide array of pinhole cameras. The gallery of pinhole camera photos is brief and will leave readers wanting more. Since specialized supplies are required, a list of possible resources would have been helpful. While Keeney provides a variety of camera construction projects, his coverage on film development is insufficient. Brian J. Krummel's The Pinhole Camera is less detailed but presents better general coverage in a more attractive package.

I purchased this item for myself with a gift card. So disappointed when it arrived and was bound upside down. Now have to deal with a return. Wish I had just gone to the store.
