    Design Features
    Our 4x5 cameras can accept most film holders available in the market, e.g. 4 x 5 sheet film holder, Polaroid Type 59 , or Polaroid 545.....just to name a few. It will also accept 120 roll film holder for 45 camera, like Horseman or orther brands' 6 x 9 roll film holders.



    Our simple and unique design for the film holder and multi format. The rubber bands are specially ordered from rubber band manufacturers. This clever design already copied by many other pinhole camera makers!



    You can load and unload your film, change from color film to black and white, whenever you want, or you can take a Polaroid proof before the final shot.



    With our specially designed built-in turret, you can easily alternate your camera between a pinhole or a zone plate version. The world's only pinhole camera with such special and original design since 2001!



    Size of the basic camera is just 30mm (D) x 155mm (H) x 135mm (W) (excluding the knob). Carry it in a jacket pocket!



    For basic version, we have a simple shutter with low-pressure spring to prevent it from opening suddenly when carrying. A stop pin that stops the shutter while closing or opening. The operation is smooth enough to avoid any vibration when opening or closing the shutter.



    We use 0.001" brass shim to make the pinhole conform to a more actual film stop number; and to render a sharper image.



    This camera works best with a tripod. The 1/4" thread tripod sockets allow you to adapt it to nearly any tripod available in the market.



    Both the size and bottom of the camera comes with the tripod socket, this allow you to take pictures in either portrait or landscape orientation. A total of 6 socket in included in the Zero 75 camera system.



    Our exclusive cable release adaptor lets you choose between manual or remote shutter activation. Price of US$69 if purchased separately.

    This cable release adapter is pre-installed to all our deluxe version cameras. A must for speed pinhole photography!!!



    All Zero 4 x 5 cameras come with our practical exposure scale, which helps you to calculate the actual exposure times (including reciprocity correction) quickly. It's larger size makes it easy to read and can be use with any of our cameras.



    The wooden parts (fashioned from quality Thai teak wood) are first kiln dried and then machine milled into correct size. Matte black paint is applied to the interior of the camera to prevent internal reflections. All inner edges of the camera are covered with a black velvet lining which helps to prevent light leaks even in bright sunlight.

    More than 15 layers of coating is applied by hand to the camera, to insure maximum protection of the wood.

    Now very very few pinhole manufacturer willing/able to product camera with this kind of coating because of the far higher requirement in skill and the very long production time.



    Even a screw inside the camera, we use matt black Baking Paint to coat the bolt and the bottom of the nut in order to reduce internal reflections.

    The structure and joints of the camera are specially designed, with reinforced bonding which allows the camera to shrink and to swell without affecting the performance of the camera when the weather changes.



    The mechanism and the structure of the camera make it work like an ordinary camera, but it is capable of taking extraordinary pictures!

Matte black paint is applied to the interior of the camera to prevent light leaks. More than 15 layers of coating is applied by hand to the camera, to insure maximum protection of the wood.



    We use hand-turned solid brass for all of the metal parts, with a baked antioxidant coating.



    The structure and joints of the camera are specially designed, with reinforced bonding which allows the camera to shrink and to swell without affecting the performance of the camera when the weather changes. We use specially made clamp and white glue instead of cheap hot melt glue which is only for fast and cheap production.
