Here’s your answer… a pinhole camera. A P–Sharan Wide 35 pinhole camera, to be exact. No batteries. No auto–focus. No need for either. While I wanted to update things two hours ago, I have to say that once I put the take–up spool together, I found that I couldn’t stop. And, as a result of deciding not to give up, I was able to finish building the camera in just under two hours.
I will test the camera some time next week or next month, once it’s cherry blossom season in New York. If making this camera was fun, imagine what the actual picture taking will be like.
I can’t wait.
