1) My "Blackbox" Pinhole Camera, back opened

My first pinhole camera. I had the pieces of wood cut by a carpenter (the only thing I didn't do myself, as I'm not equipped), screwed them together, sealed the edges with glue and sprayed the whole thing with black paint. For the pinhole, I cut a piece of a beer tin, carefully made a tiny hole using a sewing needle (only the fine tip) and polished with fine, wet sandpaper. I checked the diameter of the pinhole in my 35mm slide scanner (equals 0.32mm). The tin foil is only taped to the body so far, in order to be able to change it (not nicely looking, but convenient). The metal pieces to hold the film are "bookbinder's screws: a smooth outer, "female" part, with a "male screw. The "male" part was only used for the winder. The camera is designed for 120 films, 6x9 (56x84mm), f152, focal length 48.5 mm)
