The world's most expensive pinhole camera? (Or the cheapest lens on an M8.)

Take off the lens on a digital rangefinder (or SLR), tape a piece of aluminum foil to tightly cover the lense flange and make a hole in the middle with a very small pin. Adjust the size of the hole for sharpness. It might be easier to sacrifice a body cap by drilling a reasonably large hole (>5mm) and testing various diameters on small bits of foil taped over it. Have some basic picture fun! - Børre Ludvigsen

First pinhole too big.

Makes flare too!

Second pinhole smaller with good depth of field ...

but prone to more flare (or could it be light leak?

Nice tonal range.
