Cardboard Box Camera

Two 8x10 images taken recently using a cardboard box, gaffer tape, black paint and a 450 micron hole drilled in a piece of brass shim stock. Paper negative developed in highly diluted paper developer.

"8x10 Rules"


  1. Wow! Great images. I've been thinking about making an 8x10 pinhole but was worried about loss of light intensity in the corners. What sort of focal length have you used with this pinhole camera? I definitely want to have a go at it now. Do you paint the inside of your box black?

  2. Can I ask you what you use to hole the paper negative in place? Do you use an 8x10 darkslide?
