Wanted to post a quick vanity shot I took of my new A-Power Pinhole 100 Polaroid pinhole camera that showed up today. Basically, it’s a modded Polaroid film back done by A-Power (www.doctor-and.com) in Japan and sold over the internet. With the current currency conversion for Yen to USD, the camera ran about $140 which includes the camera, strap, instructions, a pack of Fuji FP-100c film, and international shipping. Time from order to doorstep was about five days, so it doesn’t get much better than that.
Build quality is quite nice and clean, and fairly straightforward. That said, it’s still something that feels like you have to handle it somewhat lightly, so assuming you can do that, it should last for quite a while. What I like is that it’s a pretty unique bit of kit, and the sample photos I’ve seen look promising and interesting. Once the weather warms up somewhat, I’ll find out for myself – and of course I’ll post the pics here to share and give a final opinion of it. In the meantime, a little gear porn never hurts.
