Pin Hole Shutter


9 Feb 2011 2:42PM
Does anyone know of a place in the uk that sells laser cut pin holes to attach to a home made pin hole camera and also someone who sells pin hole body caps or who laser cuts them if you supply a cap. Oh and who are reasonably priced as well.

Cheers guys.

Thanks Mike .. I have already tried a coke can pierced with a needle and just thought I would try something a little more purpose made. Not sure that a laser hole will add anything because the attraction of the pinhole is it's variability in sharpness and light dispersal but it is always good to try something new every now and then.

I am going to try the Ilford direct positive paper as well. Hope they have some at Focus in March.
