Gakken Stereo Pinhole Camera


Gakken Stereo Pinhole Camera, is a DIY camera from a Japan magazine, is very simple to assemble.
This is not my 1st roll of film to try out this Gakken Stereo Pinhole Camera.

I found that is kinda long time i didn’t take out and shoot (if not wrong, the last time I using this camera is last year Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day). So, I decided to put this Gakken Stereo Pinhole Camera on my Gorillapod and shoot around in my shop.

The brightness of the light in my shop consider not too dark, so I choose an expired negative Kodak 400 to load inside my pinhole camera. Guest what? This camera come with 2 mode, it can take either a pair of 24X34 mm stereo or a single 24×72 panoramic, and normally i choose to shoot with panoramic mode.

For my experience, I set 20mins for each shot inside my shop, and the pictures comes out not bad~

Pinhole is bout long exposure, so I wondering what will comes out if I use color splash to splash in front the camera while shooting? And it will got color dot appear in the image! (next time I should try more color splash!)

And by the way, outdoor under big sun, pleaser remember not to expose to long time, if not, the picture will over expose!

Now i cant wait to bring this Gakken Stereo Pinhole Camera to outing at Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day again!!!

    I also have this cam and have felt the same, it's too precious to go out almost and not having instructions has been interesting. Good to see your results.
