Group Info

A pinhole camera is a very simple camera with no lens and a single very small aperture. Simply explained, it is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. Cameras using small apertures and the human eye in bright light both act like a pinhole camera.

The smaller the hole, the sharper the image, but the dimmer the projected image. Optimally, the size of the aperture should be 1/100 or less of the distance between it and the screen.

A pinhole camera's shutter is usually manually operated because of the lengthy exposure times, and consists of a flap of some light-proof material to cover and uncover the pinhole. Typical exposures range from 5 seconds to hours and sometimes days

In interesting that the last journal here was for a Kickstarter project.
Dear fellow deviants. I have a Kickstarter project that is ending in about a week.…
At this point it is only 30% funded. PLEASE take a look and consider supporting me, AND please share the link with at least one other person. (If that person is incredibly wealthy, that would be even better!) It will be good for your art karma . .
Thank you.
(Group admins, feel free to mention this in your group journal or announcements. . . THANKS!)

Does anyone have any advice on how to get scraps of film (from "pintoid" cameras) developed? (don't want to do it at home, but I doubt walgreens will develop scraps)
