Not long ago, Ilford introduced their 4×5 pinhole camera. But today, they’re unveiling their 8×10 pinhole camera–possibly making everyone else feel a little small in the fanny pack. It’s made from injection moulded ABS and then a durable non-slip coating is added. However, it stays really light at only 800gms. It sports an 8 x 10 film holder and features tripod mount positions, built-in spirit levels, and an accessory mount.
As far as optics go, it comes with a 150mm (5.9in) focal length cone with a diameter of 0.52mm (0.0205in). This optic has a fixed aperture of f288 and a 94.7 degree angle of view.
And just like the 4×5 version, the kit has the same Exposure Calculator and printed onto a waterproof material. Filmwasters already has a video review of it, and you can check it out after the jump. If you want to see samples, photographer Leon Taylor has some images already on his Flickr and after the jump. If you convert the figured, it will cost around $386 US for this monster.
