ILFORD PHOTO announce the introduction of the ILFORD Pinhole Photography Kit
A prototype camera was shown at Focus on Imaging earlier this year and received huge interest from schools and colleges, as well as existing pinhole photographers. The HARMAN TiTAN PINHOLE CAMERA has been designed in conjunction with, and manufactured in the UK by Walker Cameras who are well known for their range of Titan large format film cameras. The body is made from injection moulded ABS, finished with a very durable non-slip coating. All fittings are made from stainless steel. This combination of materials makes the camera exceptionally robust to withstand extreme natural elements, and rough handling. The camera, which can be used with any photographic film or paper, takes a 4 x 5 film holder and features tripod mount positions, built-in spirit levels, and an accessory mount. The kit comes with a 72mm wide-angle pinhole cone, which is interchangeable. Separate cones of 110 and 150mm, which is the same focal length as the standard lens on a 4 x 5 camera, are planned as optional extras.
Rec. Retail Price (incl. VAT): ca. 199€
