The kit is laid out for printing on a manageable A4 size. It yields a fully functional camera, which takes 35mm film and 12-24 images per roll.

Kelly Angood keeps track of the images captured by other people with her Hasselblad design. You can check those out at pinholehassleblad.tumblr.com.

The Hasselblad is an old Swedish brand of medium format cameras, intially produced for military use. Today, it is still a popular choice among professional and serious amateur photographers.

For medium-format paper pinhole camera capability, Paper Pinhole DIY Cameras are available at the shop.

    What kind of paper would I need to make one? I'm thinking something a little thicker like card stock? What works best?

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
