The other day I saw a luxury pinhole camera on sale. The uniqueness of this camera is not in performance but in price. Nothing less than $ 975 for a new pinhole camera. Want to know why? To me, honestly, I did not remove my Diana + …
While most people are trying to survive this economic crisis, there is a small industry dedicated to making items for the luxury and eccentricity. This time it is a pinhole camera made with oak and brass. It is considered the Rolls Royce of cameras. This is the P.90, made by the study conducted by Kurt Mottweiler.
As for benefits, does not offer anything new: tripod adapter, wheel drive and rear window for the exposure counter. It uses 120mm film. The price, as noted above, is $ 975. It is a limited edition and numbered to 50 units.
The camera is nice, it is true. However, there is a pinhole camera also finished in wood, on sale at the Lomography shop. This is the Pinhole Art DIY 135 and without anything to envy the P.90, flows through a fair and affordable price (50 €). In addition, the Lomography model is 35mm, which lowers enough to use. In short, I’ll buy one for a special gift.
The Pinhole Art DIY 135, Lomography:
If I think about it, I’ll stay with my Diana + or any of the pinhole cameras from Lomography I don´t need the oak and bronze. I’m already happy with my plastic toy cameras.
