Osbock writes – “Pinhole camera constructed from an eclipse mint can. Inspired by the Matchbox camera by alspix. I must say, the Eclipse brand had something to do with the inspiration too. I made a few mods, though, I decided not to mask the frame, as I’ve always wanted to try “perf” images. I totally miscalculated the image circle. I imagined little 38mm vignettes, so I advanced the film 8 perfs. It looks like the image covers the entire back, more like 16 perfs. It was very difficult to decide where to cut. There were, of course, neat serendipitous multi-exposures.”Link.
