    These photos were taken with the Bender 4x5 from a tripod. Just an experiment with interesting results.

    "Laser-cut pinhole".....? Explain a bit more for the un-read and greatly challenged among us (me!).

    btw, I just love the colors you get with that film!!

    The pinhole is made using a laser rather than a drill (or pin).

    I did not make the pinhole. It was purchased from a vendor. It is made of brass shim stock. I mounted it in a 4x4 'lens' board. The interesting aspect of this experiment is the similarity of the 2 images. Consider the cost of the lens at about $200 and the cost of the pinhole at about $3.

    They do look alike as small files, but how would they compare as 16"x20" prints? :wink: Schneider makes some of the best lenses there are; what model is it?

    I'm with Terri. You get to say "Yeah, it's a LASER pinole." That's worth something in my universe :) Kinda like if Rollei made 110 point and shoots.........

    Interesting comparison though........

    I expect the 'pinhole' photo would fall apart at that size. I don't recall the model of the lens, but it does produce a higih quality negative.
