Wow very cool, I build a pin hole camera in scouts a long time a go out of a shoe box, didn’t get as good as results with it as you did with the pictures. Hope you write some more on your camera, maybe a blog, I think its a great project.

I thought pin hole cameras by definition had only a pin hole. Looks like yours has a lens??

This is absolutely so very cool ! I thought of a lot of things to make out of wood that normally isn’t, but not a camera. I have got to make one for my Uncle. He’s a professional photographer and he would flip over it. (hope you don’t mind me using your ideal, I promise I wont use you design.) Thank You for posting.

That is awesome! Just the other day I was just holding a piece of poster board in line with a hole in my shop wall looking at the inverted image, and was wondering how those cameras were made. (I’ve heard of them, but not seen a picture) Not only are you an excellent craftsman…you have ESP!

I always thought also what you said Joe about this perhaps not being strictly by definition a pinhole camera,however I should like to learn exactly what it is. It looks like a small lens camera..Alistair

Really, there is not a lens. Just a tiny hole drilled in brass shim attached to the back of washer painted black.

What threw me off was the specification for the focal length and F stop. Wasn’t aware that a pin hole could be spec’ed out like that. Also your treatment around the pin hole kind of looked like a lens from afar.
Good job. A real small hole, in a real thin substrate has virtually no distortion or other problems that “real” lenses suffer from.
