Archicam multi-pinhole lensboard

Archi-multi-pinhole-cam

I recently made a pair of these pinholes cameras at the request of a friend who does architectural photography. The idea had been to do a shift camera but my friend Darius finally came to me with the idea of using multiple pinholes instead. So I built this very simple 4 by 5 camera with short focal length that can either be shot as a shift camera or with multiple pinholes open at once. A steel lens board allow simple magnets to be used for shutters.

  1. Hello Kurt
    wonderful website.
    I have seen some examples of the architectural pinhole. I nee to see images where i can see the differences between normal pinholecams and this one.
    If i had it i would use my graflex 70mm back. maybe also the rb with sucking system and adapter. I dont yet have that adapter.
    Thank you very much
