    the first and last were from my d70s with a hole in the body cap.

    the rest were oatmeal boxes, or square boxes.

    and ignore the text on the last one, this was a page from that bands press kit. you can here there music at www.deus-machina.com or at myspace.com/deusmachina i think.

    Don't we have special forums for these techniques somewhere? Isn't there that mysteryscribe posts his pinhole photography? I might have to move this thread over to there...

    I'm in the process of refurbishing my pinhole camera. It's just a matter of drilling apertures and mounting them to lensboards.

    Of course, my Scanner isn't working, since Windows isn't working. I'll see what I can do.

    James load a windows 95 in the second system spot on the lenux crap. You will at least be able to work the Old scanners. Of course I have to switch to xp to make my scans no win 95 drivers even though I have usb. That is if you have tha lilo chick to help you pick a system...

    I don't have Win95 to load, and wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole if I did. The only operating system I've had more trouble with than W95 is Win ME. Plus, my scanner requires ME or later.

    WinXP loads just fine (yeah, I've got LILO on there), but as soon as I try to start a program, Explorer--not IE, but Explorer itself, the Windows shell--seizes up. Which means I can't resize windows, or even close them. Or start new ones. Or use ctl+alt+del.

    Tomorrow, most likely, I'll go through the process of taking my computer apart to remove the Linux drive (Like hell I'm letting it get accidentally overwritten!) then reinstall ME, then reinstall XP over it, just like I'm supposed to do every three to six months. Then all the updates. My computer should operational again by Thursday. Thursday morning, if I'm lucky.

    It's going to be a pain to reload all the device drivers, though... printer, scanner, sound card, webcam, etc. Plus all the other software.

    If only hardware manufacturers supported Linux better... in a perfect world...

    But what this all means in practice is... it'll be Friday before I can upload any new photos.

    okay but 95 is the way to go (I tell you) nobody bothers to write compatable trash for it. lol.

    Anyway come back the poetry class needs you.

    NOt sure a digital camera can be a hardcore pinholer but I like the shots anyway.

    I think #s 2-4 have the best pinhole feel to them. I like #5 as an image but it doesn't speak to me of pinhole. :)

    Nice stuff, let's see some more!

    Oh, and this Alternative forum is for all your freaky non-digital images, so post away!

    yes, digital may not get the classic resolution, however with my d70s on a sunny day (mind you the pinhole is not as small as previous ones i've made) i can hand hold it up to a 30th of a second.

    but, you don't see many action type pinhole shots of people.
    if only i could get the same stuff with my digital as on a piece of 4x5 film!!!!!


    and no, not just by putting a card with a hole on it in front of your digital camera. first you need to remove the lens . . . .then you can do that.
