This is my new pinhole camera. I bought a disposable underwater camera (euro 15) and throw away the lens, and the put a 0,25mm pinhole. I've adapted the shutter to have B pose. This can go up to 30m deep (but I can't go so deep) and have a 28mm focal lenght. Here are some pictures.

I like the look of the broken plastic/glass lens: it appears very purposeful. As for the pinhole, I'm assuming if the camera were placed underwater the pinhole would leak water into the camera? I've an image done this way, in Renner's book. Let us see how it comes out.
