The ‘new normal’..

Things with my material suppliers and La Poste (my preferred shipping service) have returned to a reasonable level of service. 

I’ve been posting pinhole apertures almost daily as I can print my own stamps from home and just pop them in the letter box in town. I think there was a lot of pinhole cameras built during this lock-down!

For EU packages I can place them for collection in my own letter box.. this has been a god-send to keep things going over the last 8 weeks. Shout out to the friendly french postmen and women! 

Packages destined for outside EU require me to go to the post office and queue up around the block with the rest  of the ‘undead’… but I am still happy to have these orders.

During this period I’ve also added a new CNC machine to my workshop and have some plans to use it to do some cool new pinhole stuff.

Thanks and best wishes to all my customers!

Corona Virus Update

Due to the virus the shipping dates listed on the site may not be possible.

Post office access here has been limited and there are also problems getting deliveries of raw materials. This is understandable of course as we all try to socially isolate.

If you do place an order please bear this in mind and be patient. 

I hope we all get through this safely and look out for one another.

James.

improved film transport..

All the curved panoramic models (6×12, 6x12F, 6×17, 6x17F) now have an improved film transport as the fixed posts have been replaced with rotating posts with the addition of precision bearings at each end.

Previously the 120 backing paper had to slide over the surface of these posts and this created resistance due to friction. This friction has been eliminated resulting in a a more satisfying wind-on experience.
