    I had a go at building the pinhole attachment from Damien's article in this weeks AP. Here's the first test, probably the wrong subject though.

    ... is there a "right" subject for pinhole cameras? Dunno - but your picture is excellent! :)

    Cheers Rog, I think my preference is for man-made structures using this kind of approach. I'm going to have a play with the focal length, changing the setup to how Damien constructed his and/or adding extension tubes. It's a lot of fun though. :D

    Win an AP mug - Damien's 'Build Your Own Pinhole' [2 Images]

    Nice one Richard :)

    I feel a bit of exclusive unofficial forum fun coming on. Don't tell Damien ;)

    "The Art Ed Pinhole Challenge"

    Rules are:
    Make your pinhole attachment. Take a picture. Post it, along with a pic of said attachment.
    Everyone votes.

    Winner gets an AP mug, plus I'll try and get the best entries published in AP :D

    Usual terms and conditions apply etc… competition ends when I say so, if and when we get enough entries… happy shooting.

    A pin hole photo of a pin hole in the sky, whatever next? Well done, do you think you could go into mass production? Do you have one to fit a Pentax K10D? :D :D

    Easy enough to make, you just need a T2 mount from ebay.

    I've just noticed how much dust is on my sensor...time for a clean.

    I remember making a makeshift pinhole at college using a 35mm film carton and a piece of photographic paper at the other end. I got...something.
    You know this is open to abuse,all you have to do is turn off the AF and shoot the scene out of focus-instant pinhole shots!

    And then we'll check the EXIF data to see what lens was attached ;)

    Ah but if you save for web it removes the EXIF data,plus who said you had to use a digital?

    Then I guess they might ask for the original file with EXIF information


    I thought that was the whole point of it isn't it? Making a pinhole adaptor for your digital SLR?

    I've just checked the rules and as I thought…

    Rule 67c
    Cheating really, really is against the rules and you shouldn't do it.

    Rule 108y
    Entrants MUST provide a picture of their attachment. (Stop it)

    Rule 318
    Entrants entries will compared with the pictures of their attachments to ascertain their apertures. (I've told you once already)

    Rule 677g
    The winning entrants prize, one 'AP loves my pictures' mug, will be dispatched upon the receipt, by me, of a £25.00 handling fee.

    I made that last one up :)

    Wide Angle or Super-Zoom?


    Aperture... that's a hole isn't it?
