Pinhole Camera

Filed under: Uncategorized — cabenelson @ 10:41 pm

One of the many gifts that Kimba got me for my birthday (thanks again hon!) was a classic style Pinhole Camera.

This isn’t the Pinhole Camera that you put together in elementary school. This camera is serious.




The back of the box says, “PUT TOGETHER IN UNDER 2.5 HOURS!!!” WOW! THAT SUCKS! But you know? I’ve never thought I would be one of those nerdy types that likes to put complex things together… Like my friend ADAM. But I’m loving stuff like this lately!


It’s made entirely of tape, paper and 5 small plastic pieces. It says on the box, “MUST KEEP AWAY FROM ANY MOISTURE” This is going to be awesome! I can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out.



BOOM! D-U-N DONE! You load in the film negatives (YES THEY STILL EXIST!) in the back and wind them manually. To take a picture you lift up on that tab, it exposes the negative and then you slide it down to shut it! CRAZY! It’s going to be awesome, now I just need to scan in the pictures I take on this to post up here.



  1. haha, can’t wait to see how they turn out! What a cool gift!

  2. Jealous! (Though not of the putting together. I have ZERO aptitude for putting things together.) I can’t wait to see what you do with it! 🙂

  4. WHATEVER! I’ve been wanting to give that to you forever! She stole my idea. Idea stealer.

    Oh, well, I guess she’s your wife, and she can do crap like that.

    Can’t wait to see what the pics look like!
