How to Turn your DSLR into a Pinhole Camera #celebratephotography

NewImage

From Digital Camera World:

There’s an app for just everything these days, including a plethora of photo effects that replicate traditional darkroom and camera techniques. Among these, getting the pinhole look ranks high.

However, there’s nothing quite like doing it for real, so we’re going to show you how to make a pinhole camera of your very own using your existing DSLR.

Using nothing more than a spare body cap for your camera, a small square piece of aluminium drinks can, a pin or needle (about size 7), scissors, some black electrical tape, fine sandpaper and a drill, you’ll have all you need to transform your DSLR.

The results won’t be perfect: the distance between the body cap and the sensor on most digital SLRs is fixed at an inconvenient distance for pinhole photography, and it can’t be easily changed.

If you can live with a little impressionistic lack of focus though, pinholing can be great fun.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
