    I recently saw some work that was amazing. The artist told me he built a pinhole camera and attached it to his Hasselblad. the final images were digital. Has anyone done this combining of cameras? Is it film being used and then scanned into a computer? Are there ways to combine a dSLR and a pinhole? The guys website is James Pryor Photography
    Can anyone give some suggestions? I have and old medium format film camera, an old pinhole camera and a dSLR.

    Any interchangeable lens camera (film or digital) can be used as a pinhole
    camera by simply putting a pinhole through a body cap and attaching the cap
    to the body instead of a conventional lens.

    BTW, the Hasselblad name does not contain the letter "T" :)

    Thanks for the heads up on spelling and the response though I don't think that was what he did.

    compur's advice is spot on. It's not difficult at all to use a slr body for pinhole photography. There are lots of resources online to teach you how.

    What do you think about a digital pinhole camera? Is it really the same as the classic's and are there people buying it?!
