    pinhole camera
  • A camera whose lens is covered except for a pin-sized hole. You have a very small aperture, so you have to shoot long exposures.

  • A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture -- effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box.

  • The most basic form of a camera in which no lens is used. A pinhole camera is made by making a lightight container and poking a pinhole in the front of the camera where a lens would go.

  • A camera with a pinhole aperture and no lens

  • Lift and set down one's foot or one foot after the other in order to walk somewhere or move to a new position

  • Used as a polite or deferential way of asking someone to walk a short distance for a particular purpose

  • the course along which a person has walked or is walking in; "I followed in his steps"; "he retraced his steps"; "his steps turned toward home"

  • (step) shift or move by taking a step; "step back"

  • Perform a dance

  • stairs: a flight of stairs or a flight of steps

  • The manufacturer or trade name of a particular product

  • The making of electrical contact

  • give certain properties to something; "get someone mad"; "She made us look silly"; "He made a fool of himself at the meeting"; "Don't make this into a big deal"; "This invention will make you a millionaire"; "Make yourself clear"

  • The structure or composition of something

  • brand: a recognizable kind; "there's a new brand of hero in the movies now"; "what make of car is that?"

  • engage in; "make love, not war"; "make an effort"; "do research"; "do nothing"; "make revolution"

Kershaw Pinhole

Kershaw Pinhole

Been wanting to dip my toe in pinhole photography for a while so i decided to convert my Kershaw 110 into a pinhole camera.

Removed the lens, all the arms/struts connected to the front plate (easier than i thought), and kept the bellows intact. Drilled a hole in the front plate dead center.

I wasn't willing to make a pinhole so i bought a 0.3mm pinhole from The Pinhole Factory, which is etched rather than laser cut, told this provides a nicer image.
Stuck the pinhole inside the front plate and blu-tac'ed the bellows around it for light sealing, will have to see how well it works.

The focal length is somewhere between 35 and 40mm giving a 90 degree angle of view, and the f/stop is about f/128.

For the shutter i cut and glued several pieces of black card around a 30mm to 49mm step up ring, then blu-tac'ed this to the front plate; i put a strip of black card behind this, cut a hole big enough and added some tabs to either end. You pull one tab to open the shutter and then push it to close.
The advantage of using the step up ring is i can use 49mm filters (which you can see in the image) and a lens cap for extra light sealing when not in use. Though i am worried about vignetting from it, though i'll have to wait and see from photos.

First paper negative pinhole!

Finally i tried to make a paper cam. I had an empty whisky cylinder that i planned for some time to turn into a camera. But this paper thing is all new to me, so i guess i overrated the speed by far. Guess 4 more expo-steps might do it. First time ever to use a darkroom to, so this was a very interesting prossess for me. Really looking forward to try this again on pinhole day
