The world’s most advanced Pinhole lens: Kickstarter launches
March 29, 2022
Thingyfy has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the newest addition to its Pinhole Pro family – the Pinhole Pro Max, which it claims is the most advanced pinhole lens in the world.
Pinhole Pro Max is said to be, ‘the world’s first successful attempt at combining six apertures and variable focal lengths in one lightweight and durable lens design.’
The Pinhole Pro Max is the latest pinhole lens launch from Thingyfy, which began in 2016 with the Thingyfy Pinhole Pro.
Pinhole is photography and videography art in its most basic and original form.
However, achieving such aesthetics can now require high-precision engineering and modern state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies.
Major features explained
Six apertures: the Pinhole Pro Max comes with different aperture sizes, that allow you to have more creative control over the images that you capture. It encapsulates from 0.15mm to 0.5mm precision pinhole aperture, made with micrometer accuracy.
Variable focal lengths: the Pinhole Pro Max is the world’s first multi-aperture camera lens that comes with a variable focal length adjustment design, making it the most advanced current pinhole photography and video equipment in the world.
Universal lens mount: you can use your Pinhole Pro Max with a camera, regardless of the mount type. Thanks to its universal lens mount add-on it fits almost all popular camera mounts. This allows photographers and videographers to use the lens on a variety of cameras without having to purchase multiple lens options.
