Hello everyone..

I have just made my first pin hole film camera. It works and I have .15, .2 and I can make my own size once I figure it out..
Kinda a cool thing I recieved from our kids.

Does anyone else have experience with these kind of homemade kind of cameras?

The only film I have had pleasure with was with those Kodak box films and Polaroids.

I know nothing about pinhole cameras but it has really sparked an interest . I am reading a book about it at the moment on which it goes through the history, how to use it and other info..really cool actually.

For those that played with these, what were your pros and cons? Have any images to share?

pending interest, I'd like to make this a side challenge perhaps. thoughts?

I know there have been some threads here, definitely some discussion on doing pinhole photography with a DSLR.

To view the entries made with a pinhole in the past you can go to: equipment/lenses/custom made/custom made pinhole/browse. There have been some great ones entered although they tend to score low since they have a soft focus but some of them are really beautiful.

Can't help with film pinhole cameras. Made one in high school but that was before digital.

IMO, puts HDR to shame. Terrific!
