Design Features
Zero 135 is a super-wide angle camera with a focal length of 25mm, and it accepts 35mm roll film.

Compact size makes pinhole photography handier: 4 3/4"(w) x 2 3/4"(H) x 1 5/8"(D) and weighs only 6.5 oz (185 gm).

The world's first and smallest pinhole camera in 35mm format since 2003. You can even put it into your pocket.

For the basic version, we have a simple shutter with low-pressure spring to prevent it from opening suddenly when carrying. 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. A Zone Plate version of the Zero 135 is also available.

All pinhole or zone plate are hold in position by this important and unique designed holder/housing.

This holder can not only help to hold the pinhole preciously in the center of the camera but also solve the big problem of dark circle appear in short focal legnth camera.

After the pinhole holder is preciously machined, a coating of matt black baked enamel to ensure finest protection and prevent internal reflection.

This camera works best with a mini tripod. Its 1/4" thread tripod socket allows you to adapt it to nearly all kinds of tripods available in the market.

All deluxe version camera comes with the bull's-eye bubble level spirit, you can have more control over angles and perspective when framing your pictures. It is made of solid brass and wood.

With our specially-designed cable release adaptor, you can trigger the shutter manually or with a cable release. This cable release adapter is pre-installed to all our deluxe version cameras.

A must for speed pinhole photography!!!

Center lock to secure the top cover of the camera in place. Practical design allows you to load and unload your film wherever you want. No dark room or changing bag is needed.

Film advance knob with knurled diamond pattern. The specially-designed knob allows you to advance the film without any complicated gear mechanism, and it is no need to re-wind the film after all the frames are exposed. You can't find such design details from those copy cats or imitators.

Our Exposure Scale helps you to calculate the exposure times more quickly with no need for a separate table. The polished brass displays a finely-etched rendering of the scale.

This dual-format camera allows you to set the film format to 35mm or panoramic 23mm x 45mm. Simply select your preference before the film is loaded. Carry one camera instead of two!!!

This unique design feature was already stolen/copied by most of the newly come pinhole camera makers!!!

A special material is added to the edge where the film will pass, this is a must to avoid scratches on film.

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

All camera comes with a viewfinder so you can frame your image easily. Far better than any markings/lines on the camera and is only available at our company.

For the materials, we choose only high quality teak wood which is very stable. The wooden parts are first kiln-dried and then machine milled into correct size. 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.

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

We use hand-turned solid brass for all of the metal parts. A baked color coating is then applied to prevent them from oxidizing.

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.

All the pinholes are installed by our designer, Mr. Zernike Au, who also designed all our cameras and accessories. Every camera is checked and tested by him to ensure the highest quality.

It's Collectible: A certificate signed by our designer will accompany each camera. Every camera comes its serial number etched on a beautiful brass plate.
