    That's right and all you need is a DSLR/SLR camera, a spare camera lens cover, a drill and a bit of spare time!

    A few guides straight from google:
    DIY pinhole for dSLR :: Photocritic photography blog
    The Canon EOS 1Ds pinhole camera

    So lets have a look at what we can all get with this method and find out any hints along the way!

    I have a store bought one. That 200mm pinhole lens looks interesting though.

    I think I'll try making one of those (gotta get another body cap first). I'm painting mine white though, lol.

    (It'll be my 200mm f/800 L)

    I was bored so I gave this a try.
    I Will give it a try in the day time as well. I see lots of experimenting ahead.
    This is just a hole in the body cap. I'll go the fancier route of thin metal, and I can laser cut the hole too, at a later date.
