The terraPin Bijou 6X4.5 Pinhole Camera is the smallest member of the terraPin camera family. Developed after years of experience designing, constructing, and shooting pinhole cameras, my terraPin pinhole cameras are novel, versatile and reliable. Derived from my popular P66, this terraPin also uses 120 film, but with a 6 X 4.5 cm frame, in a vertical (portrait) orientation. Dozens of P66 pinhole photographers around the world provided input and feedback to help shape the terraPin. I post every photograph I make with my terraPins HERE.
I designed the terraPin Bijou to be the pinhole camera I wanted to shoot. All source files are available for download on Thingiverse, and, in a perfect world, you would 3D print your own camera. If you don't have access to a 3D printer, I sell fully-assembled cameras. I want you to be delighted with shooting my cameras, not struggling to assemble them.
The "Slider" joint between the body and extension allows for effortless changes in focal length, angle of view, and magnification. One camera body and film transport mechanism can be used with multiple extensions, each with their own pinhole and shutter blade.
Currently there in only a single complete extension option:
35mm, designed for 0.26mm pinhole f/135, Horizontal angle of view: 61.32°; Vertical angle of view: 77.32°
Frame indexing window with cover slide
Bolts secure the cap to the body during use for greater security
Dual winding knobs for precision indexing / rewinding (film swaps)
Film clips prevent unspooling of film during unloading ("fat roll")
Uses same proven exposure duration calculations as P6*6W and terraPin 35mm
3D printed in bioplastic PLA
Pinholes are hand-drilled in brass and checked for size and roundness with microscope +/- 0.01mm
