    As a huge departure from all the technical stuff I woder if anyone has tried this by taking the lens off and replacing with a pinhole on a card. Just for fun of course.
    Not having a DSLR but a purpose built 5x4 that I have fun with. I was just curious.

    Not tried it with digital, but I have done it with 35mm (Zenit E with a T2 mount (modified to accept card pin-holes) which gives an approximate effective focal length of about 45mm.

    Interesting image though Daniel. Just shows that it can be done. For a sharper image the pinhole has to be very fine of course. Pinhole shims are sold cut with a laser but I am sure lots of fun can be had by using other means.

    I made a pinhole camera with a large coffee tin and lined it out black and made a tiny pinhole in a piece of coke can and attached it to the side of the tin with a black flap for the shutter. would be nice to know how to do it digitally.

    This is purely out of interest and fun, something that explores other possibilities aside from the usual. The same could be said about coating your own paper or using POP (printing out paper) to create an image. There are some that loath photography as a pastime and take to drawing in the belief that it is truly creative. My curiousity was how digital would respond, and now I know. You could say it is all part of the Alternative Process.

    I read about a company that will laser drill holes in body caps. You send them a cap and they will drill it for you.

    Yes I have seen their site. There are more dedicated pinhole photographers than imagined. April 24th is Pinhole Day worlwide.

    Why wouldn't you?

    What's wrong with trying out daft ideas?

    That's what makes life interesting.

    It doesn't do any harm to go back to basics occasionally, there's always something to learn!

    Someone probably said that about the first digital photo.

    In fact some of still do! LoL

    "...a company that will laser drill holes in body caps. You send them a cap and they will drill it for you."

    I wonder what is a fair price for a hole ? Reminds me of the old line about the Black and Decker salesman who went to the top when he realised that people didn't buy his products because they wanted 3/4 inch bits, what they wanted was 3/4 inch holes.
