World's First working see-through Camera!

KOCC member Jon Legge has made a break through- a working pinhole transparent camera. Created by wrapping 'Safelight' sticky tape round a 35mm Rank Mamiya camera (a recent KOCC acquisition) as a former, cutting the sticky tape 'shell' off and fitting a pinhole. Because the red tape is designed for black and white darkroom use, the camera, while see-through, is safe for the B/W paper neg. Here are images of the camera, and a negative and positive image; the slight fogging is due to an ill fitting lid rather than any problem with the tape itself.
