    Abelson Scopeworks Boomerang Pinhole Camera

    A while back I picked up one of the Five Abelson Scopeworks Boomerang pin hole cameras. Waiting for my first images to come back but this is a thing of pure beauty!

    These pics are from Abelson but one of these five is mine! All mine!!!!

    That is what I really miss about film--the flexibility in camera design. I am really looking forward to some images.

    Hmm, time to do some scanning. The downside of course of film is that last bit ... and spotting.

    Am I right in thinking that these images are of pin-hole cameras, not from?

    Thx Graham for posting. I have a friend who works with pinholes, but hers are so clunky in comparison. Iíll tell her about these - though perhaps the clunkiness is part of what she likes about her cameras.

    I have a clutch of wooden Zero Image cameras but this one is a piece of pure art. I'd equate it to being like an Alpa of pin-hole cameras. Beautiful even if you never use it in fact.
