That last post of course set the wheels a-spinnin’ and, remembering that I had some expired Kodak colour film to use for something, I decided to build a new pinhole. I based it on the triple pinhole design, but with a single pinhole giving a panoramic format across the whole width of the film – sprocket holes, frame numbers and all.
I put a short roll of Pan F through it as a test, and aside form the usual first roll light leaks it did pretty well, as this shot of Hursley churchyard festooned with snowdrops hopefully demonstrates.
I’ve now rebuilt the shutter and put on more layers of 120 backing paper to fix the leaks, so the next roll through will be colour.
