Build Your Own Working Cardboard Hasselblad Pinhole Camera

You can now build you own version of the cardboard Hasselblad pinhole camera that we featured a couple days ago. Kelly Angood has released a PDF with the template and detailed instructions for putting the pieces together. The finished product is a working pinhole camera that takes 120 35mm film.

Here’s an instructional video showing the build process:

Kelly is also going to be publishing photos of finished cameras on a Tumblr page dedicated to the project.

    Those look like 35mm film cannisters to me not 120 roll film…

    Hi Michael, I love peta pixel, please don’t take the following note in the wrong way
    PP used to be a fun place filled with original content and delight. the editorial standards were high and set a high bar for other blogs to follow.
    I wonder if you noticed that over the last few weeks, the content has degraded and site focus has changed.
    There are three things that I noticed, I don’t know if they disturb you or any of the other readers, but I thought to turn your attention to them, just in case this was not intentional.

    1. There is almost no original material any more, and surfing PP approximates RSS-aggregating fstoppers, KEH , the top reddit list and a few other blogs.
    2. Some images in use (like boxing arena) are not used within their CC license, a CC image that has the no $ sign, can not be on a money making blog. CC licensing is not simple, so I thought to turn your attention to that.
    3. Lastly, lots of via tags at the end of posts are missing. I assume you surf the web too, and find interesting things to share, which is great. That said, stuff that has been all over the news, should definitely get a via.
    And the last thing, which is less critical in my mind, re-postings. No point in taking content from a different page, be it a blog post, an instructible or a reddit discussion and simply reposting it here. I mean it is already on the web, it would be more fair to let the readership know the original location of the content and provide the originator with the deserved traffic. Just saying.

    I know this may not be easy to read. however, I am positive that you can take the message and and make the most out of it for the wonderful peta pixel community.

    with respect,
    a loyal reader
