5×4 pinhole camera

The robust HARMAN TiTAN 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 durable and able 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 accessory mount. The kit model comes with a 72mm wide-angle cone, which is interchangeable. Separate cones of 110 and 150mm, which is the same focal length as on a 5 x 4 camera, are planned as optional extras.

Included in the kit are 10 sheets of 4 x 5 inch HARMAN DIRECT POSITIVE photographic paper, 10 sheets of 4 x 5 inch ILFORD DELTA 100 Professional film, and a Pinhole Exposure Calculator designed by Richard Koolish, all contained in a recognisable iconic ILFORD white box.

Suggestions are that the kit will cost £150 and be availablr from late October full details from the Ilford web site here
