British set and prop designer Kelly Angood has a hobby on the side: He has "created a range of functional replica objects. Their creation stems from my desire to own them despite never setting eyes on them in real life. Having always wanted to own, but never being able to afford a Hasselblad all the astronauts used them during Mercury through Apollo , the pinhole alternative is interesting. Angood has made the plans, instructions and video a downloadable design that actually works with 35mm film.

I came across a cap that I was considering getting and would like some advice. Has anyone tried this particular cap? Does it for any reason hinder the functionality of the camera body or film back? Here is a link to the model in questions.

Also I would be up for any other suggestions as well. Feb 21, 2. Messages: 1, It will fit and will work fine. Viewing through it will be pretty tough, the zone plate is better for that. They will tell you what the effective f stop is so you can use that to calculate exposure. Feb 24, 3. The only down fall is that it gives a focal length of 73mm and I really would like something wider than that.

I wonder if retro fitting something for my crown graflex would be a better solution. Any thoughts? Feb 24, 4. Messages: I turned my Hasselblad into a pinhole camera using a piece of mat board cut to fit within the lens mount with cutout to hold a piece of foil with the pinhole.

To prevent light leaks and make the fit tighter, there is some electrical tape wrapped around the edge. It works pretty well and I haven't had any problems with light leaks. Viewing is difficult, but if the scene is very bright you can see a very faint image on the ground glass.

Feb 24, 5. I have thought about doing something like this; I have an extra Holga lens and a Mamiya But why? Why should I try to get my Mamiya to take Holga pictures? I have a Holga for that. Feb 24, 6. Holga and pinhole is two different looks. Feb 24, 7. How about mounting a pinhole on the film back? A shallow box could be the "camera body", you can decide how wide you want it to be.

Feb 24, 8. Yeah I was thinking about just using the film back and then rigging a body of some sort to maybe get a wider angle. Maybe it might be fun trying to design something that would fit. Feb 24, 9. You don't need much, just some cardboard and tape. You can get fancy if you can get a hasselblad mounting plate to lock the magazine onto. I did one with a polaroid back and a sheet film box. Worked great, while the film lasted. Feb 24, Feb 25, Messages: 7, RB backs with the advance lever are convenient.

The mirror is the limiting factor with any SLR so the 73mm is about it with the Hasselblad. I think what I am going to do instead is take one of my 4x5 film backs and make a box for that. This should allow me to get the focal length I am looking for and the bigger neg to boot. I need a project anyway. Feb 26, Messages: 3, Ditto what John said, the RB backs are great for all manner of Diy projects, they are easy to advance, the only thing they're missing is the Hasselblad "V".

Yes, you can use the bellows to adjust focal length, tilt shift can be used to change the framing, but it won't have the effect of controlling the plane of focus, as there is none with a pinhole image, that is an aspect of lenses.

Cardboard Pinhole Hasselblad Is Short On Megapixels, Long On Cute

Yes, you could make a pinhole camera from a shoebox. In fact, as a highly skilled and likely highly attractive Gadget Lab reader, you could probably chop up some cardboard and glue it into the shape of a real camera. But would you first screen-print the corrugated cardboard, and then cut the sections with a precision that almost matches that of the Hasselblad camera your model mimics? No, you wouldn't. But Kelly Angood would. Kelly is a prop and set designer, and also makes replicas of real objects.

Beautiful Cardboard Hasselblad Almost as Well Made As Real Thing

Sometime in I came across a post on an online photography forum discussing software that could be used to make an image look like a soft-focus pinhole photo. It talked about the dreamy, ethereal qualities of 19th century pictorialism but I wondered how much time and money had been invested for the photographer to do this on a computer. Cheaper to do it for real, I thought. I made a small wooden box for paper negatives that I could scan, and tested out making needle holes on some copper sheet. And then a second, larger box the Neretta for a Mamiya Polaroid back I'd picked up at a second-hand store. I was able to get more information from the forums, but a copy of Adventures with Pinhole and Home-Made Cameras by John Evans provided both information and insight into the value of experiment.
