Ilford's Pinhole Kit

Did you know that Ilford came up with its own Pinhole Camera? Read on to find out what this $254 photography kit comes with. If you don't have that much moolah for a pinhole, you can make one using household items too!

To be objective, Ilford’s business hasn’t been going too well in the last decade. As most of us know, Ilford specializes in making film, photographic paper and developing chemicals. With the coming of digital cameras, Ilford, like many others including the now bankrupt Eastman Kodak, has struggled to keep the business going. They can rely only on conservative photographers who didn’t abandon film and, as certain articles put it, the new-born tribe of hipsters obsessed with anything out-of-the-ordinary. Possibly to intrigue and stimulate the latter consumer group, Ilford launched its own Pinhole Camera.

The Ilford Harman Titan Pinhole Kit features two plastic panels which make up for the body and the “lens,” a DIY cardboard exposure calculator, and 2 packs of negative and positive photographic paper (10 sheets per pack).

The camera itself features two spirit levels for even horizons, a tripod thread, and a smartphone holder which can be used for better framing of the shot.

Despite the rather simplistic features of the kit, it is valued at $254. The quality of the pictures is that of a typical pinhole—strong vignettes and not too sharp. The design and decorative factor, however, are impressive.

April is Pinhole Photography month and surely the best time to try it out if you haven’t already! Look around for tips on how to make your own camera or get one from the Lomography Shop!
