Here is my pinhole Hasselblad from Spain.
It took me all weekend to finish it but I finally made it, although I made some changes, basically removed the folding box of the roof.
Apart from that as I was building it I realized how practically flawless the design was, just wanted to make a suggestion: I think the back part of the camera should be a continuation of the main body at least in one point to prevent light leaks.
zakontach3ny asked: So is this pinhole camera made entirely out of paper?
And is it very flimsy??
If you watch the video and download the PDF you will see that the print-out needs to be backed onto 300gsm black paper. So no, it isn’t flimsy.
notawholelot asked: I just finished the body but I'm seeing some major light leaks! Mainly from the main part of the camera and the back not fitting together tightly enough. Might make for some interesting pictures but I'm concerned its there's too much light coming through. Suggestions?
Yes cover anywhere that is having light leaks with a layer of black electrical tape- should sort out the issue. It is very important that you check carefully for areas where light could get in at the film mechanism and make sure those areas are covered with tape too.
today I finished my Pinhole-Hasselblad. I uploaded a few pics of it at Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lmgz/sets/72157626443004084/
all of the pics are cc-by-sa - so take them ;)
in a few days I will upload some photos I made with that camera.

adventuresinfilm asked: Hi Kelly,
Great timing - I'm currently involved in running a week of darkroom-based photographic activities, and our plan for Friday was to make pinhole cameras. I was thinking shoe boxes (and we probably still will), but we've *got* to make a few of these!
Thanks for sharing,
Brilliant! Well if you do make them please send pictures and results to me- would love to see them!
bltgd asked: I LOVE this fabulous idea, and thanks so much for posting the plans.
Do you have a PDF of plans for the corrugate model as well?
Thank-you- please do submit your images if you do make the camera!
I’m afraid there are currently no plans to release the 120 model- it was a personal project and would require significant financial backing to release (anyone?!) not to mention the all clear from the Hassleblad company.
Thanks for your question,
neonvalleys asked: Ms Angood, I just wanted to point something out and I don't know if it's just me or if it happens to everyone, but the download link from your Tumblr Blog is:
I visited that URL many times looking for the download link and never found it. I looked everywhere. I even looked at the page source in Firefox thinking maybe I am just blind or stupid. :-p Anyway... it wasn't until I took off the 'www' from the URL that the link appeared, like so:
Very similar page... just the stills replaced by a video and the link added. Anyway, thank you for making the instruction pdf and video available. I can't wait to put one together and try it out. :-D
Glad you found it in the end! A few people have been having this issue if they have visited my site before because the old site was still stored in their cache when the update went up. So clearing the cache usually resolves this problem.
Please submit images when you have finished the camera!
