Taking pinhole photography to a whole new scale, photographer Shaun Irving transformed a delivery trucks into the world's largest mobile camera, the Cameratruck. The resulting prints (see "First Kiss" below) bear the rich anomalies that come from the technique—he says the best images are the ones "where you can't tell where the image ends and the squirreliness begins"—but in a size roughly 3,000 times the size of a 35mm.

Built from a truck sourced from eBay, military surplus lenses and a cardboard box shutter, Irving hatched the idea as a college student. To take each shot, Irving stands inside the camera, spending about half an hour to set it up and take some test shots. The video below details the process and results.

Various types of prints at various price points are available from the Cameratruck site.
