    FYI the pix overlap cuz I underestimated the focal plane, and didn’t wind the film far enough. thanks for the props :)

    I love it! I also found this other pinhole camera made from an iPhone box, but they turned the plastic insert upside down, it’s pretty cool! http://www.etsy.com/listing/50208988/handmade-pinhole-camera-iphone-box-35mm

    Why is this even posted? I am not normally a negative person but this is a waste of space and time. So what if he cut a hole in a box and put a camera in it. Would it have been posted if the box was plain cardboard? This is FAR from a “pinhole” camera,,, I’ve never seen pins that big!

    #2 I’m not convinced you know what a pinhole camera is.

    actually, I used a fine needle; barely poked thru the tinfoil. The large opening you see is just a larger hole I created so I could swap out the tinfoil/interchangable lenses, from the inside, in case a particular needle/pin size wasn’t working.

    Alas, people need to think about about where what they use every day came from. I love “Rough Science”, ever watch it?

    great result pictures!

    I’m really impressed at the clarity and contrast in them.

    (i know having iPhone written on the box doesn’t distinguish it from the countless other tried and tested pinhole cams, but it’s just nice to be reassured of what a cardboard box, some film and a very small hole can do)

    well done :)
