Dick,
Pin hole camera's are a very viable business with the aim of extending
Polaroid's instant photography in the creative and educational markets! This
particular camera supports 4x5 film  Do a google search for pin hole camera,
there are dozens of web sites devoted to that subject and several
manufactures of such camera's. I recently saw a beautiful teak pin hole
camera made by a photographer/company in Hong Kong.
Polaroid sells hundreds of thousand's of packs of film into the creative
market for image transfers and the like. This camera fits that business and
it is cheap.
May not be your cup of tea but it is for many others.
David

I'll never be a CEO. But, I can't for the life of me understand why
Polaroid would shrink back to its core instant film products as I have
read. It seems to me that instant film is on the way out, since digital
cameras are getting better at a increasing rate.

In the UK they have just launched a pinhole camera kit and you can hardly
get more backward looking than that.
No doubt, if they continue in business, we will see the introduction of a
wet plate kit and then something really, really special like a coated copper
plate that gives just one copy with the image back to front.

Speaking for myself I can hardly wait.

PS: glad to hear they are considering selling off their digital scanner
division, there's no future in that kind of technology by gad, no indeed.
