This is the first of the amazing pinhole cameras created by Wayne Belger and was a gift to the photographer (Brian) who was attempting to use a 4×5 pinhole camera with no tripod mount.
The Bee is a 4×5 pinhole (film) camera that is machined from aluminum (aluminium for you non-American folk). It features two windows with antique key holes meal bug, beetle, and a large, black, carpenter bee. The back is spring loaded for keeping the film holders in place. Tripod mount is stainless steel. The poem on the top is lifted from a Pablo Neruda poem, “El Insecto”.
