building the Zymo 127
The Zymo 127 is a pinhole camera I made to take photos in the Zymoglyphic Museum. It takes 127 film, which I often cut down from 120, to get the film type I prefer. It's made from an altoids tin and various pieces of hardware. The decorative plate holds the mechanism for the shutter. I made the plate and the shutter, then riveted the whole assembly on the lid of the Altoids tin.
