Adam @ Make: Online points us to Kelly Angood’s homemade cardboard pinhole camera, dolled up to look like a Hasselblad. It takes 120 film.

    Great idea! Only from the mind of a creative producer. You designed an inexpensively built, back to basics pinhole camera in the image of a classic icon. Maybe this will eventually get a cult following and replace the creatively unpredictable Diana camera. Get the regional and annual Cardboard Hasselblad Pinhole Photography contests going.
    In the past I turned my expensive Hasselblad camera body, prism viewfinder, auto bellows, lens-less shutter, 120 film back and a cheap piece of black paper into a zoom-able pinhole camera. You did just the opposite. And for more than $4500 less. They both achieve similar outcomes. They both make me smile thinking about them.
    I might have missed it, but did you include a tripod mounting threaded hole(1/4-20 thread in the USA) in the camera base for steady long exposures?
    Nice work!
