    For anyone who is interested in another 4x5 pinhole camera. I am also trying the one from Zero Images. I do like the modular approach with simply adding "frames" for longer focal length. I also like the possibility of attaching a cable release which allows for slightly shorter exposure times. What I am not too impressed with is the longevity of the rubber bands - better always have some spare ones with you. But the quality of the files is really excellent - I think ;-).
    In general I feel that starting with 4x5 by using pinhole cameras is a really nice and easy (and not too expensive) way to find out if Large Format is for you - it definitely is for me :-D.

    Here some examples taken with 50mm focal length - so one additional "frame".
    Both TMAX100, developed in DD-X, scanned and finally processed (dodge&burn and tone) in Lightroom

    Excellent images, Isabel. I tried a 35mm pinhole camera, but it was quite limited. It makes sense to use bigger film. Thanks for your thoughts on this camera. It's useful to hear of actual user experience.

    @Alex: Thanks :) I also tried a 6x12 cm panorama pinhole which was quite convenient as you could use 120 film but I have to admit that I much prefer the 4x5, just gave the best quality.
