With the holidays approaching, Herschel, Alex and Jana got together to discuss useful gifts for the pinhole photographer and offer a few personal revelations for the season.
It all begins with a discussion of gifts we’d like to receive this year. Jana hopes for the perfect, travel-friendly tripod, Herschel makes a wish for a Zero Image 4×5 camera and Alex welcomes any listeners to send the Supersense 66/6 Pinhole Instant Camera his way.
The conversation then turns to gifts for those new to pinhole photography which of course generates some lively banter and useful suggestions. While Alex and Jana consider 35mm pinhole cameras like the Viddy or ONDU 35mm a good start, Herschel does one better and offers the gift of building a custom pinhole camera and developing the first prints.
Our thoughtful discussion continues on to topics such as the revival of film, converting Polaroid CB-70 (or CB-72) into instant pinhole cameras, eBay sob stories and Herschel’s use of The Force to meter exposures. Do you have gift suggestions, an eBay sob story of your own or feedback from this podcast? Be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
