• 0.7mm pinhole. A little oversized for this focal length.
  • Ceramic coffee mug.
  • Salvaged T-mount.
  • T-mount to Canon EF adapter.
  • Filled full of J-B Kwik epoxy.
  • An old Russian 66mm filter with the glass removed makes a handy mount for interchangeable pinholes.
  • Brushed steel pinhole stock scavenged from the bottom of a can of nuts.
  • Still need to flock the inside. So so shiny.
  • Inside has been flocked. So, so much better.

    Was this very hard to make? I'd be tempted to try something like this on my olympus.
