HARMAN TiTAN Pinhole Camera
ILFORD PHOTO announce the introduction of the ILFORD Pinhole Photography Kit
The HARMAN TiTAN PINHOLE CAMERA has been designed in conjunction with, and manufactured in the UK by Walker Cameras who are well known for their range of Titan large format film cameras. The body is made from injection moulded ABS, finished with a very durable non-slip coating. All fittings are made from stainless steel. This combination of materials makes the camera exceptionally robust to withstand extreme natural elements, and rough handling. The camera, which can be used with any photographic film or paper, takes a 4 x 5 film holder and features tripod mount positions, built-in spirit levels, and an accessory mount. The kit comes with a 72mm wide-angle pinhole cone, which is interchangeable. Separate cones of 110 and 150mm, which is the same focal length as the standard lens on a 4 x 5 camera, are planned as optional extras.
The camera is supplied in a kit that also includes 10 sheets of 4 x 5 inch HARMAN DIRECT POSITIVE photographic paper, 10 sheets of 4 x 5 inch ILFORD DELTA 100 Professional film, 10 sheets 4 x 5 inch MULTIGRADE IV RC pearl finish photographic paper and a Pinhole Exposure Calculator based on a design by Richard Koolish, all contained in a recognisable iconic ILFORD white box.
Users need only a 4 x 5 inch film holder to get under way. New film holders are readily available from dealers selling the camera, with second hand ones often available at very reasonable cost.
Kits are expected to be available from photographic dealers from early December 2011 in Canada, with a list price of $245 excluding Tax for the full kit.
