“Battlefield” Pinhole Camera Shoots with Three Rolls of Film

Steven Monteau is a French photographer who creates wild do-it-yourself cameras, including “the Jaw” and “the Guillotine”. His latest creation, the Battlefield pinhole camera, uses 3 rolls of 35mm film and exposes them simultaneously to capture unique looking images.

Here’s an example of what the Battlefield camera can do. It’s a photograph taken by Monteau titled “Meriadeck under attack !!!”:

The best part is, you can make one of these things yourself! The complete do-it-yourself tutorial for this extensive project is posted over at DIYPhotography.net, but be warned: the project likely requires countless hours, loads of patience, and existing skill with your hands.

If you do end up making one of these bad boys, don’t forget to leave a comment sharing your resulting photographs!

    if you're making it yourself, why not make it take 4×5 sheets instead?

    Cos you cant get three different emulsions on one sheet. The interesting part of this is the three different types of film and therefore three different images.
