Outing??

Yes, you can use your digital bodies as pinhole cameras. Just take a cover, cut a 1/2 inch square hole, tape tinfoil to the inside, and make a clean pinhole in it and away you go (with your tripod, of course.)

Here is one I did this way (and converted to B/W):

I'd be down. I'll need to make a better pinhole than the one I threw together a while ago, but that can be easily accomplished.

It's that easy? Why haven't I tried this yet......

Yeah, it is that easy, and with the use of the LCD, exposure is just a matter of a couple of test shots.

Why not just heat a needle and poke it through the cover?

Too thick maybe? But that would be a robust method though.

From what I read, a hot needle will work. But, Brians idea does make it easier to adjust the size of the pin hole.

Yeah, the thickness of the plastic would be problematic, but I am sure that you would be able to get an image, as long as the whole isn't too big to create large circles of confusion and make it all too blurry (which speaks to Justin's comment.)

:( Since nobody chimed in to go out, I now have other plans. But that shouldn't stop anyone else from getting together.

Did anyone make a pinhole setup as described, or have one already?

By the way, dark and icky doesn't matter to the image -- it just might take twice as long to make the image, but you will be waiting a while, anyway.

LOL, the first comment to your post is Brandon:
"I'd be down."
But true, I guess I never said I would like to do something.

SO, Jason, Brandon, anyone else? Im going to head up to Brighton beach and try my hand at pin hole'ing. Ill be there at 1.
After that, I think I would like to head down town someplace and set up on the sidewalk. I want to do something like Jason did in a busy hallway at school.
So, anyone still want to go?

I would be up for it, but on Friday I lost my house and car keys, so I'm stuck at home and without a car until I can get new ones. Sorry all. :-\

Yeah, but it was way to windy outside to keep my tripod steady. I even hung 20 pounds from it and it still would shake when the wind hit. So I think its a great day for indoor pinhole'ing! Lol. Maybe the mall?
