I drilled what needed drilling, epoxied in a nut, painted, and reassembled what I could. Now I need to get some very tiny needles to make the pinhole, because it turns out that the ones I have are still way too big to make a pinhole that will be a sharp as I want. As soon as I get a good pinhole plate, I can attatch that, put everything together, epoxy on the cable release mount, and I’ll finally be done. Yay! 6 years ago

I disassembled my camera last week, took off the lens, modified the camera insert, and sawed off and sanded the lens mounting apparatus. So, technically, all I need to do is add the pinhole and this would be done. But.
But I decided that I want to be able to mount the camera on a tripod. And I also thought it would be nicer to keep the shutter, instead of exposing by simply uncovering the pinhole. And if I’m doing that, it only makes sense to set it up for a cable release, too. Whch means that I also have to drill a hole in the bottom and epoxy in a nut for the tripod mount, modify the shutter to do time exposures, and epoxy a nut on the front to accomodate the cable release. Oh, and also spray the inside of the camera with matte black paint (flocking) to keep stray light from bouncing around. Because, hey, I have everything apart already. So, yeah, nothing can ever be simple for me. Sigh. 6 years ago
