The lens made the image brighter and focused at a certain distance. The bottom piece A and the side pieces B should be about 40 mm longer than the top piece C. In photography certain subjects may be better suited for a particular technique than others.


In my view, best results are achieved with medium or large format film or with photographic paper in similar sizes or larger. The back of the camera is designed to accommodate a standard film holder.
