Thought for the day: Pinhole Lenses
A pinhole lens is about the simplest lens imaginable. It is simply a pinhole that let’s light onto the sensor (film or electronic).
They have a number of surprising uses including making double or multiple exposures, tracking the Sun over the course of a day or year, observing solar eclipses, emulating very old cameras and more.
You can easily make your own:
- Buy a lens+body cap (for Nikon Z, search Amazon for Nikon Z Front Body Cap & Rear Lens Cap Cover Fit for Nikon Z Mount). Other vendors are similar. About $8 or $9
- Make a hole (typically drill a quarter inch or larger hole, remove the burr, and tape some aluminum cooking foil over the hole
- With a sharp needle or pin carefully make a clean, even small hole
- Put your new Pinhole lens on the camera and experiment for the right exposure. Due to the small lens diameter/high f/stop you will need a long exposure or higher ISO.
