Dear Zernike Au, I have shown my 612B to friends and i told them that you are the best pinhole maker. And i believe its true !  They found my camera beautiful and amazing. And my first shoots as a stimulating and encouraging start.

Thanks very much for the prompt service. The camera has just arrived (no import charges!) and I am going out to try out my first pictures. I'll try some mono first so that I can develop them myself.

Bob Marshall, Great Britain [10/19/07]


what a beauty... first roll inside, waiting to be exposed:) thanks for the declaration of a "woodenbox" didn't have to pay VAT up here:)
thanks also for the excellent communication regarding purchase of camera
if you are interested, i will share the first few images via flickr with you... might take a couple of weeks, since i am traveling a fair bit in the next few weeks.

Jorg Sundermann Kent, United Kingdom [10/10/07]


I just received my Zero 69 multi-format pinhole camera. It\'s absolutely beautiful and I can\'t wait to use it. Delivery time is astonishingly good: from order time, despite a postal strike here in the UK, this arrived in 72 hours.

Rachel, United Kingdom [10/10/07]

Dear Zernike, I today received the camera. Your shipment is excellent. It is a pleasure to work with you!

Best Regards, Ivan

Ivan, Denmark [9/17/07]


Just wanted to let you know that I got my camera today in the mail. I could not believe how fast it arrived in the mail. I wasn\'t to thrilled to have to go out and purchase a pinhole camera for my photo class but after getting my camera in the mail I am super excited. I cannot wait to go out and start taking shots. Thanks for the speedy service and awesome new toy.

Kent, United States [9/6/07]


I JUST recieved your camera! What a beautiful piece of work! A lot of pride went into this camera! I have a roll of film thawing out right now! Since I never get to shoot wide angle, I think my first roll will be the full 6x12!~ THere is so much to learn, but , as a musician I love the fact that one must almost BECOME the camera( like with a musical instrument!), in order to become adept at mastering it~ No doubt I will have questions, but for now, I feel like I should put on an old pair of knickers, a wool cap and make my first photos, like our great grand parents did, only without such a beautiful camera in their hands!~ Sincerely yours, Ken Carpenter~usa

Dear Zernike
The parcel containing all the items arrived this morning - much faster than our internal post here in the UK!

Many thanks and best wishes

John Furlong, United Kingdom [8/20/07]


I picked up the camera today and I really have to say thank you. It was quite a journey to find your office but finally it wasn't that difficult. I am kinda surprised how small the camera is. I usually work with Mamiya and Hasselblad medium format cameras and based on this experience a expected something bigger. But what a pleasent surprise, what a neat surpise. Even I don't have shot a film with it I already like the camera. So again, thank you. Mark

Mark, Germany [8/16/07]


July, 2007

I wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the Zero 2000 Deluxe camera that I picked up at your office on June 23. I took it to Lamma Island that afternoon. The camera is very easy to use and the results were excellent. (Two of the photos are attached.) I ordered a second Zero 2000 Deluxe today from your website to give to my son who is an artist-photographer. I'm sure he will enjoy his camera as much as I am enjoying mine.

Thank you again,

John Lehmann, Hong Kong [7/3/07]

Got my 6x9 deluxe today - thank you. Problem: It looks so beautiful that I\'m not sure I should actually use it :) Actually, can\'t wait to start putting some film through it. Take Care, Bob

Bob, United States [6/8/07]


Good afternoon. Zero 135 basic caméra well réceived very fastly and in very good conditions. Very beautifull ! Thank you .

HI, The camera arrived today and it is gorgeous! I think it is finished better than my Mamiya 7... it is so exquisite that I am reluctant to take it out in my camera bag and and maybe scratch it. Thanks

Oliver Cardona, Australia [5/16/07]


Hi Zernike, just a quick message to say that the cameras arrived safe and sound yesterday - what a fantastic service! I think that is actually quicker delivery than a complany in England could offer!!! Anyway, I'm delighted with the quality and workmanship of the cameras, they are so beautiful I'm almost reluctant to use them - but I know I will be using them LOTS! I cannot wait to take some photos with them, once I have some good shots I will send them over for inclusion on your website.

Thanks for all your help, very much appreciated. All the best,

Andy, United Kingdom [5/11/07]


I just got the Zero45 deluxe yesterday. It is a beautiful camera. I think I am going to have a lot of fun with it, and hopefully more. Thanks.

thanks again

David Pisani, Spain [4/25/07]


My husband and I just returned from a lensless photography symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are the most enthusiastic winners of a 6X9 Zero Image! Thank you so much for this gift. We had been wanting a pinhole for some time.

Sam and Tom Robbins, USA [4/30/07]


Just received my zero 2000 today, can\'t wait to try it out. It\'s beautifully finished compared to a cheap imitation pinhole from another manufacturer which scratched all my films. Delighted with the camera, many thanks, Damian

I just picked up my Deluxe Zero 612F from the post office.  When I got home and unwrapped it I was struck by the elegant beauty of the camera.  Your photos online do not do your craftsmanship justice!  What a remarkable piece of art.  I can hardly wait for a sunny day to try it out.  I'll forward images when I get them.

Sincerely impressed, I am,

Mary Beth, USA [3/19/07]


Dear Zernike This is to let you know I have receive my new 612F and the first roll is processed, I must say I\'m very impressed. I look forward to the nicer weather to take it out more. The camera is fantastic, it\'s even better then you make it out to be, this is truly an amazing and beautiful piece. Again thank you so much for this incredible camera.

I received my Zero 2000 this past saturday. Now I have been a pro-photog for going on 25 years. I have owned many camera, even owned an 8x10 deardorf for a number of years. I have to say that you guys create a beautiful camera. It is so much like a work of art. I can tell from my first couple of rolls that the added cable release will be well worth the cost. Kudos to you, excellent work, perfect. Allan Rosen-Ducat

Received my Zero2000DeLuxe last week, with the certificate signed on my birthday, couldn\'t have planned it better! The first roll of film is exposed and developed, and I must say I\'m amazed! This is * very * nice! I\'m going to have a lot of fun with this! Even the non-photographers are amazed when they see me with this nice wooden box! :-)

Kind regards,

Marcel, NETHERLANDS [1/18/07]


Just wanted to say thanks for dealing with my order so efficiently. I received it much quicker than expected, only 4 working days after ordering. I am delighted with this beautifully made camera (Zero 2000 deluxe) and can't wait to get started. I was inspired to try pinhole photography by the wonderful pinhole images by Steve Gosling which have appeared in several UK photo magazines recently.

Kind regards

Sue Heath , United Kingdom [1/16/07]


Hi Zernike,
I just wanted to give you a short feedback about my order:

It´s been delivered this morning. After a very short look at the manual, I prepared an old IFORD FP4 Plus S/W and drove
to a lake 6 km from my home town. The weather´s been really bad today. Very cloudy with lots of wind and rain. (well,
northern part of Germany ;-)) I took this first picture with the ZI 135 deluxe. The "Multisix"-meter and your manual recommended
4 min of exposure. So I did and..... look!

I went back home and with a very basic set of tools I worked out this picture. This is original with no work on Photoshop!

Thanks for the fast delivery and this wonderful camera. And many thanks for writing a second invoice for the customs!!!!!!
Great! I will recommend you on my website and will buy another camera later on.

You´ll hear from me soon with new pictures and a link to my homepage.

Thanks again

Joerg , Germany [1/14/07]


My beautiful camera has arrived. Here is what I write about your company:

You couldn't have done a better job on the camera or the customer service if you tried!



Dear Wernike Au, My Zero 2000 camera arrived this morning, 8 am UK time.That is fast. It is very beautifully made. I have already loaded a film, now if the rain would stop I could go and make photographs. Thank you very much.

Charles Hart, United Kingdom [1/12/07]

Americans come to buy your cameras because they are beautiful and give many hours of photographing pleasure. The 45 model has been wonderful to shoot with. I love all the new accessories you have created for them.

However, I won't be traveling to Hong Kong anytime soon. I have written to Calumet and asked why they don't carry your exposure scale in addition to the spirit level and the cable release. Maybe if I ask enough they might do so. In the mean time let me investigate to see if there are any alternatives available.

Esther Kibby , USA [12/12/06]


dear Zernike...
the refund for the cancelled Cable Release Adaptor went through ...thank you!

and today, we received the new 612B
it's so beautiful...will make a good combination with the zero 4x5 that we already have...


merry christmas...

SARA PETERSON , USA [12/15/06]
