f/200 digital pinhole camera

i revisited my digital pinhole camera project, this time armed with better material for the pinhole and a nikon d200 instead of the canon 10d.
i ordered some .002 in brass shim stock from McMaster-Carr, purveyors of everything.

basically, you take a body cap, make a huge hole in it and then cover that with a piece of brass shim containing a pinhole.

the resulting images have an interestingly eerie quality to them.

take a look at the assembly and results of version 2 of my digital pinhole camera…

  1. i really like wide-angle shots; unfortunately body and mirror
    do not allow to place the pinhole closer to the sensor.
    a solution could be to buy a cheap(er) fixfocus camera
    and to remove the lens…
