Anamorphic experiment: part II

So I made this design for an "anamorphic pinhole camera": I made the camera, shot a roll of film with it, and finally got around to developing the film. Here are the results.

To start, here is a new anamorphic picture from a one off mini camera. This is the kind of picture I hoped to archieve with my anamorphic camera.

And here are some pictures of my design in different stages. I trew it all together over breakfast, so it’s a but quick and dirty.

So did it work? Weeeelllllll…… no. Sort off. The entire roll yielden one (1) decent(ish) picture:

The rest of the roll looked more like this:

I guess I didn’t make it light proof enough, and I messed up most of the exposure times as well.

Back to the drawing board!
