Chris teaches you at least three ways why using a hole instead of a lens to take pictures can really make you a better photographer – and why with the analog taste to it, it is still easy to approach it from the technical side. The Iceland posters are pretty much on their way and Chris will be on the real radio. Tonight.

RAIN OVER REYKJAVIKWow, thanks to all those who backed the RAIN OVER REYKJAVIK poster campaign, you managed to blast through the campaign goal in record time and all backers will receive the poster soon.

As of this post, it’s only 33 hours (!) until the campaign is over, and after that, there is no other way to get the RAIN OVER REYKJAVIK poster. This is a one-off, so this is officially the very last chance for you to order this poster.


Other tiers of the campaign include

  • Get your own photo(s) reviewed by Chris and receive an MP3
  • Get your own photo(s) reviewed by Chris in a live Skype session
  • Get your own photo(s) reviewed by Chris while being a guest on Tips from the Top Floor
  • Get a personalized live photo workshop by Chris

There are also two stretch goals, the first one adding a TFTTF logo sticker.

You got to be quick, only 33 hours left!

The Marquardt International Pinhole hit many bumps along the way, a lot of prototypes were built and discarded and it was over three years in the making.

I couldn’t be happier how it turned out, it’s the essence of camera.

FINALLY: The MIP is here!

flattr this!

Yes, despite the date, this is not a joke. Over three years in the making, the ten MIP cameras are finally finished!

» more about the MIP

mip04

The ten serial-numbered and certified cameras have been meticulously built by German craftsmen (and one German craftswoman) – coming in a mix of wonderful materials:

From ten different beautiful woods (Ash Tree, Flamed Pear, European Maple, European Yew, Wild Pear, Satinwood, Service Tree, Fiddleback Ash, European Cherry, Almond Pear) to the entirely custom-made anodized and laser-engraved aluminium hardware.

And as a buyer you also get to choose from one of eight different leather-tipped strap designs, made to fit a great variety of different 4×5″ film holders.
