120 film is a roll-film that has a paper backing to protect the actual film. The film is wound tightly onto a spool that is designed to protect the film from direct exposure to light. To use this film, we will also need an empty take-up spool.
Now that we have a pinhole, we can install the shutter. In the last post, we created a sandwich from the pinhole brass and the black construction paper. By now, it should be plenty dry.
This is the seventh of a number of posts that will be devoted to the construction and the use of my 120 Matchbox Pinhole Camera. In the last post, we created our pinhole. In this post, we will attach it to the inside front…
The only thing I knew at that point was that that a large size matchbox has the same height dimension as a roll of 120 film. I also realized that 120 film which does not have a cassette, would require a much more robust system to make it function in this setup.
