The Ilford Obscura Pinhole Camera allows you to get back to the basics of photography; shooting with limitless depth of field and no focusing. The Obscura accepts either 4x5 sheet film or photo paper. The camera's unique design slides together to ensure a light tight box and holds film or paper in the rear of the body and positions it as such to create a small border surrounding the image.
It features an 87mm focal length to provide a wide-angle perspective similar to that of a 26.1mm lens on a 35mm-format camera. The 0.3mm, chemically-etched pinhole provides an approximate aperture of f/290 and a magnetic, locking shutter allows for controlled exposures. The shutter rotates either clockwise or counter-clockwise for right or left-handed operation and a tripod bushing is incorporated into the camera body for use with any standard tripod.
