Digging through the archive this week we found an old-school post that we'd totally forgotten about. How cool is this creation, though? It's a pinhole camera that uses a Unitas 6497 hand-wound watch movement to mechanically control the shutter mechanism. Designed and hand-made by a photographer named Kwanghun Hyan, this mechanical marvel creates interesting images and must feel incredible to hold and shoot.*
With the original post being nearly six years old (and linking to a more in-depth article from the guys at Worn & Wound), I figure there is a good chance many of you have never seen this photographic oddity, so dig in and, should you need a weekend project, making a pinhole camera is a great idea and one can be fashioned from a number of common items. And no, you don't even need a watch movement.*
