New Camera

 The lens is extended for use

 Interesting negs!

I've been playing with Pinhole cameras again!. The joy of making a new device. This time its an old Agfa Clack from the fifties. I noticed it had a shutter speed of about 1/25 but also more importantly a B setting. So I ripped the lens out of it and fitted an F262 stainless pinhole (thanks Bayden!). This gives me a 120 roll film camera that makes circular frames! Weird. I bought the camera years ago for $5.00 so its becoming a very interesting piece of equipment. Most exposures on a good day are around 6 seconds on Tri X - so the tripod mount is essential. I haven't made prints yet but the negs look interesting.
