I messed around with pin holes a few months ago. I found a cardboard tube that fitted over an extension ring - one of those postal tube things. In the cap of the postal tube, I cut a hole, and taped a piece of ali. foil over it, with a small pin hole. I got very blurry results with a tubelength of about 20 inches. I tried different distances too, even considered a zoom.... Someone was offering pre etched foils, modify a body cap. Some folk get really interesting results, but I'm uncertain if I will try much more. iirc international pinhole day was a month or so ago. There is a website somewhere.

There is a certain appeal to it, a bit like when you have a power cut, and you have to use candles.

Best wishes,
