Tools The Camera Design Page

Camera design can be from the simple to the complex. On these pages I'll explore some ideas for building your own working cameras.

Camera #1 This is my first pinhole camera. It is made from an oatmeal box and can take pretty good wide angle pictures.
Camera #2 This is another pinhole camera. It is quite complex and features a hinged back for changing the film and a sliding front that can give a zoom effect.
Camera #3 This is my first homemade camera that uses a lens. The back is the same as the one in Camera #2. It uses a lens that was procured from an old copy machine. The sliding front handles focusing. It also has an accessory focus screen.

The easiest portable darkroom that you'll ever build.
