Scura Tie – 35mm pinhole camera full setup

$148.00

The SCURA Tie 35mm is a 3D printed panoramic pinhole camera that uses 35mm film to capture 60x25mm images. Its unique curved back was designed to ensure that light reaches the film evenly from corner to corner, resulting in beautiful distortion-free photographs. While maintaining the minimalist approach of pinhole photography, the combination of a laser-drilled pinhole plate and a magnet-powered shutter allows for optimal precision and ease-of-use.

This is a camera made for all photographers, from beginners to professionals! From bustling city streets to quiet country roads, creating pinhole magic has just gotten easier and even more fun! Thanks to the premium packaging it make a perfect gift for every photography lover.

The Scura Tie is un upgraded version of the first edition Scura. 

  • The camera is completed with practical tightly bound elasticised cord that turns it into a tactical styled camera. This allows for quicker access to the film chamber to easily reload the camera, giving you more time to photograph and less time spent fiddling around with screws. 
  • Next to the magnet-powered shutter now you can add a shutter release cable as well! This improvement reduces the possibility of camera shake during an exposure by not having to physically touch the camera to open and close the shutter, as well as allowing you to have better control over your exposure times.
  • The addition of a filter holder was an exciting change for us, as filters are always lots of fun to experiment with when shooting a pinhole camera! Currently we offer a red filter as an extra for your Scura Tie. More colors will come soon!

Only available as a pre-assembled camera that comes in a premium packaging, with a free viewfinder and a strap cord. It is ready to use straight out of the box, all you need to do is stock up on your favorite 35mm film and you’re good to go!

Available in two colors: matte black or black & indigo blue splatter texture coating

Based on the principles of the camera obscura effect, pinhole photography has a lengthy history that spans many decades, and is still an exciting practice in today’s modern world. One of the oldest forms of analog photography, shooting with a pinhole camera slows down your process and lets you focus purely on the mechanics of capturing an image. The joy of pinhole photography is found in the combination of the simplicity of techniques and the dreamy, ethereal qualities of the end results, giving you a different view of the world around you.

The SCURA is a well-designed, tiny, and lightweight pinhole camera that is both easy and fun to use; an effective photography tool, this camera has been built to go everywhere you go.  Whether a beginner or a professional, the SCURA is sure to delight, allowing you to focus on the process and pleasure of shooting, just as the pictorial masters did a century ago.  

The SCURA 35mm version uses 35mm film to capture 60x25mm images. 

One of our main goals when designing the SCURA was to achieve a clearer and sharper image, which was accomplished by curving the film plane. Since the film is always roughly the same distance from the pinhole, light “fall-off” (vignetting) does not occur like with other pinhole cameras, and the edges remain sharp. 

Increasing the frame size on the SCURA 35mm allowed us to obtain a beautiful panoramic view while maintaining image quality, allowing you to explore your full creative potential. The angle of view is 69 degrees.

The cornerstone of a pinhole camera is a precisely drilled perforation; it must be perfectly round and exactly the right size in order to achieve the best image quality possible. Functioning on a high frequency and low energy beam, the laser-drilling technology we use results in a flawlessly even and smooth cut (0.3mm).

Pinhole cameras are often quite simple with very few moving parts. Our biggest challenge was to create a shutter that had smooth movements for precise control over the exposure and after testing several prototypes, we determined that by using magnetic force we could achieve just that. You also have the option to add a shutter cable holder as it fits perfectly the mount on the Scura.

What they’re saying about our cameras


Greg G.USA

Dora’s cameras are just so awesome. I ordered a Zone and also a Scura DIY kit from her, and the quality is amazing, honestly I was surprised as it is 3D printed. The kits include everything you need, her tutorial videos helped me a lot to assemble the cameras, and I love shooting with both of them, having beautiful results.
Definitely recommend to everyone who likes to experiment with new things and wants to try a new way of analog photography.

Harvey M.United Kingdom

The experience of shooting and developing photographs from a camera that you have built yourself is incredibly satisfying! I bought a Goodman Zone and the Scura as well, I loved the build and assembly process! Once I started shooting with them, I quickly fell in love with the cameras - it's really rewarding to use and the results were more than I hoped for in terms of image quality.
I highly recommend Dora Goodman Cameras to anyone who wants an experience whereby they feel involved and immersed in every stage of the photographic process, from building and assembly through to producing gorgeous prints.

Zeb A.USA

The Scura 120 has done a marvelous job of distinguishing itself from that crowd. I think it begins with the fact that you have to assemble it yourself. But there is more to the Scura than the DIY aspect of building it, the curved planes of the camera make it feel quite at home in the hands and the wood finish easily makes it one of the more beautiful cameras on the shelf when it gets a break from being out in the field with me.

Andres O.Japan

The Goodman Zone is an amazing camera that lets you take control of all the aspects of the creative process of photography. Meticulously selecting the composition, deciding the focus, setting the exposure parameters, and finally shooting; the process with the Goodman Zone is as simple as with any other mechanical film camera. However, unlike other cameras, you are using something you assembled and personalized to your liking, not only aesthetically speaking, but also to the arrangement and types of accessories that you are more comfortable with. When i first started with the Goodman Zone, I came for its gorgeous design and its low price, but stayed for its personalization potential, its ease of use and Dora Goodman's nice and welcoming community.

David G.USA

I really enjoyed building the Scura and the shooting experience is so much fun and relaxing! I like the shutter, the wide curved film plane is really clever solution, and I like my results, the dreamy pinhole world. Overall very nice design, highly recommend to everyone who would like to experiment with pinhole photography.

The Goodman Zone is compact and light as well as a replacement for the massive Mamiya Press camera body and 65mm lens...That heavy camera from the ’60s was designed for professional photojournalists.

Tobias S.Germany

I took the Zone with me on a trip north to the baltic sea around Rostock/Germany to put it through its paces and shoot the first few rolls of film. Shooting with it was very smooth, and so was changing the rolls from the printed 6x6 magazine. Compared to my other medium format cameras, it is very light too! When I received the scans, I didn't expect much, to be perfectly honest. I thought most of them would be out of focus anyway and have terrible light leaks, but I was pleasantly surprised to get extremely sharp images back with no artifacts at all. Some credit goes to the nice sharp blue dot Mamiya Press lens, of course, but the Zone is so well designed that most props need to go to Dora Goodman for this. It's a sure companion for future trips.

Mario C.Italy

I love my Goodman Zone, it is very light, aesthetically beautiful, very functional! I was surprised how durable it is, I hike and travel a lot and I always had a problem how to carry my heavy medium format cameras with which are also very expensive so I was a bit scared ot breaking them on my trips. The Zone solves my problems, it is super easy to carry and made of strong material. I am also happy with my image results, it perfectly does the job.

Nicolas G.France

Bought the Dora Goodman 6x12 in May 2021, I was already interested by their concept of 3D printed modular cameras so when I saw the 6x12 on the website I decided to pull the trigger and buy it. I have to say that I was very pleased with my purchases, the camera is very easy to use and the fact that you can modulate it to accommodate another lens is really great, so far I tried the Schneider 47mm super angulon and a Nikon 90mm on it. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a very light 6x12 camera, with the advantage to accommodate a fresnel glass to focus in case you want to be accurate.

Simone H.Germany

I always liked the special aesthetic all of the Goodman cameras have. Their lines are distinctively unique and each camera is a small piece of art. I took much time with my Zone, never having done zone focusing or any medium format work before, the results came as pleasant surprises from a much more lightweight camera than the non-printed alternatives, with the best part being I can still change it and adapt it to my needs. After a year into the journey of this camera, I am inclined to say it may never end!

Wendy C.United Kingdom

The Scura is fun to build and fun to use this camera. It is simple, sturdy, and easy to work with once you get the hang of rotating the winder the correct amount. Also very affordable and well made for the price. I like the artistic style - my images had a soft dreamy look. And also it is small and light, so you can carry it in your pocket and use light tripods and clamps with ease.

Marcel P.Germany

Using a Dora Goodman camera for me means; to tickling the maximum out of the simple. I like the feeling and the look so much, fusion old with new is just great. Everyone of these cameras will show its own look sooner or later. You are simply inclined to evolve your camera and adapt it to your needs, just as you push your output further. A camera that grows with you, not just by changing a lens.

Daniel P.Hungary

I've been using my Zone for about a year now and I'm still as excited about it as the day I got it. Besides the cool design, the main feature for me was its size and weight that allows me to carry it everywhere. I also enjoyed that the camera slows you down a bit, offering a different shooting process. A great experience overall.

Anna K.

“I am very happy with my 35mm Scura camera. First of all I love how tiny and light it is, it can fit even into the smallest bag, and it has literally no weight. The usage of the camera is easy, the shutter is very convenient. It took me a while to learn the secrets of pinhole photography, but if you follow the advices from Dora and her team you can get epic results, at least I love mines. Their customer service is pretty good, they’re always super nice and happy to help!”
