Thread: Homemade Pinhole Cameras

  1. #1

    Smile Homemade Pinhole Cameras

    Hey, anyone still shooting with homemade pinhole cameras? Have you tried building one? Saw a few talented street photogs posting their works here done with pinholes and self-developement in their HDB darkroom 2 years ago.

    Anyone still at it?

    Anyway, just to add a poll to see what have you tried. Hope the novelty of pinhole photography don't die.

    i think you can add in the metal moon cake boxes/chocolate boxes as one of the choices.. I think i saw such a post in here about a picture of CHIJMES or St Andrew Cat...

    did one using the camera body cap 2 years back.
    like sulhan said, about same focal length as 50mm lens.
    the small dot in the centre is the pin hole.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
