“What if a person just sent an entire camera, with film re-rolled and ready to double expose, to another person? My Pinholga is lightweight and cheap, so if it gets lost in the mail it’s no big deal.” This is an idea I had after pondering film swaps and pinhole photography. And thus an idea started to germinate. A traveling camera film swap. Two film swaps and a dead camera later, I think we are on track. This time with a new name and a new camera.
Todd Schlemmer graciously donated one of his Terrapin 3d printed pinhole camera systems to the project! Behold, The Great Transatlantic Pinhole Filmswap 2.0 begins!
A few weeks ago I received the new camera in the mail and immediately set out to shoot the roll that Todd had already exposed. I scanned the results last night and couldn’t be happier! I love how they turned out!
The camera will be perfect for the project! It has some really cool features, but the best one is that you can rewind the film in camera (no dark bag needed). This little feature makes it perfect for film swaps!
