Pont de Pedret [my pinhole cameras #7]

This picture was taken in the north of Barcelona province; it is a “gothic” medieval stone bridge over the Llobregat river that was taken with Efke IR820 infrared film through a Hoya R72 infrared filter with my 8banners multiformat pinhole camera. The camera was commercially available but, to the best of my knowledge, it is really hard to find nowadays. It is an 8banners multiformat (4.5×6, 6×6, 6×7, 6×9 and 6×12) pinhole camera; it also uses 120 film rolls and has a pinhole ø= 0.20 mm, the focal length to the center of the film is of 24 mm and that gives an f/120 value. As you may see in the third shot below, to use the filter I grinded down the outer thread of a step ring that I glued inside the camera (it was not possible to do it outside because of the shutter mechanism, see the last two pics).
