digital pinhole camera

this weeks topic for photothursday was blurry which co-incided well with the construction of my first digital pinhole camera.
total cost (excluding the digital camera) was $5.60 for the body cap which i made holes in.

UPDATE 3/20/2006: i revisited this project and created version 2 of the digital pinhole camera



  1. What Is a digital Pinhole Camera??? Answer with pictures and words please!!! thanks

  2. A pinhole camera? What a fun idea!

  3. What does a pinwheel camera do? I see that it makes photos blurry, but there’s gotta be more to it.

  4. Can you actually see what you are shooting through the viewfinder with that rig? Your shots seem well composed so my guess is “yes”, but I am curious. Also, where did you get the idea to try this out?
