116 Pinhole Camera

I'm going on a trip overseas soon, and decided not to take one of my large format cameras due to weight limitations. So, in lieu of that, I decided to make a 116 pinhole camera out of an old Kodak Autographic shell. I stripped all the leather off of it (since it was gross and crumbling anyway) and recovered it in some fabric. I detached the bed of the camera and the bellows from the insert, and instead made a removable front from black foamecore. I salvaged the pinhole from an old pinhole camera I tore apart for some reason, and held the front of the camera to the pack with velcro strips and a rubber band. It turned out a little lightleaky, but not too bad. It doesn't weigh much at all, is flat, and takes roll film, so I'm good to go!
