the materials, we choose only high quality teak wood which is very stable. The wooden
parts are first kiln-dried and then machine milled into correct size. Matte
black paint is applied to the interior of the camera to prevent light leaks.
More than 15 layers of coating is applied by hand to the camera, to insure maximum
protection of the wood.
Now very few pinhole manufacturer willing/able to adopt this kind of coating because of the far higher requirement in skill and the very long production time.
use hand-turned solid brass for all of the metal parts. A baked color coating
is then applied to prevent them from oxidizing.
The structure and joints of the camera are specially designed,
with reinforced bonding which allows the camera to shrink and to swell without
affecting the performance of the camera when the weather changes. We use specially made clamp and white glue instead of cheap hot melt glue which is only for fast and cheap production.
the pinholes are installed by our designer, Mr. Zernike Au, who also designed
all our cameras and accessories. Every camera is checked and tested by him to
ensure the highest quality.
It's Collectible: A certificate signed by our designer will accompany each camera.
Every camera comes its serial number etched on a beautiful brass plate.
