What better way to make the ultimate pinhole camera than to print one? Todd Schlemmer designed his PINHE4D camera to shoot 35mm film, using Tinkercad to create the files and a Printrbot Plus to output.

A more recent version is the P5, a 4×5 pinhole camera that was modeled after the Harman Ilford Titan view camera. It was designed around a widely available 4×5 film holder and has two focal lengths: 90mm, with a 70-degree field of view, and 150mm with a 46-degree field of view.

Want to build your own? You can download the STLs from Todd’s Thingiverse page. If you just want to look at cool 3D-printed cameras, check out Todd’s Flickr set.
