The Art of Romance

Zero Image camera, the handmade pinhole camera with its antique design, is an objet d'art ideal for private collections, and makes a perfect gift to celebrate the new millennium.  Our camera's revolutionary design helps you take pictures with special effects, and connects you to the boundless creative and artistic world of photography.

Our cameras range from 35mm format to 4x5 format, in order to satisfy our customers differing requirements.

All our cameras are made of selected high-quality teak wood. More than 15 layers of coating are applied by hand to each camera, to insure maximum protection of the wood. The metal parts are hand-turned solid brass with a coating applied to prevent them from oxidizing. The mechanism and the structure of the camera make it work like an ordinary camera, but it is capable of taking extraordinary pictures!

We use 0.001" brass shim to make the pinhole conform to a more accurate film stop number and create sharper images.

All the pinholes and zone plates are installed by our camera designer/president Mr. Zernike Au. Every camera is checked and tested by him to ensure the highest quality.

Every camera has its serial number etched on a beautiful brass plate, complete with a signed certificate of authenticity for its original design.

Each camera is sent in a beautiful gift box and accompanied with an instruction manual, including detailed illustrations drawn by our designer.

By year of 2010, we provide name engraving service, you can have any name engraved on the name plate of the camera by our camera designer/president.

We also provide some specially-designed accessories for you to upgrade your Zero cameras to expand your creativity.

In the past ten years, we have shipped our cameras to nearly every corner of the world, including the USA, Canada, France, Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, Finland, Greece, South Korea, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Russia, Thailand, the Philippines, Macau, Australia, Austria, Argentina, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, China and we have received very positive feedback from our customers. We will continue to develop additional specially designed pinhole cameras, with more coming soon.

Enjoy Pinhole Photography, and don't neglect to add one of our special cameras to your collection.
