Thread: This was my first pinhole

  1. #1

    This was my first pinhole

    I made this pinhole using a cigar box. Two of the three pinhole cameras I've made are from cigar boxes. This is my first attempt at a pinhole. I sacrificed a Singer roll-film back by permanently gluing it to the box. I know; after I did it, I said to myself "I've made a terrible mistake." This box is what I like to call a telephoto camera. It is an f/323, using a 0.020" pinhole in a 6.5" focal length. After this camera I started using metric measurements.

    This is an image taken with this camera.

    This is a snap from an application I use to meter the light. It allows you to photograph the scene and documents the meter settings.

    That's a cool looking camera, with a good first test. I also like your light meter application!

    Thanks, I use this app quite a lot. It helps me to document what I've done in the field. I can use it as a quasi spot meter and save each of the measurements. If I had to write one (an app) myself I would put a OM4 type spot meter that could take several measurements and give you the average. That would be cool.

    That is a fine looking camera and takes a good image too.
