About Lomography Paper Pinhole Camera

• Do It Yourself / The Hole-On-Ex Paper Pinhole Camera Recommended Tools: (1) Ruler - Use for parts folding (2) Pen or Pencil - Use for parts rolling (3) White Glue - Use for parts sticking
• These three tools, about 90 minutes of your precious time, & a bit of precise finger-work are the only things separating you from your very own god's honest self-made camera creation
• From four die-cut pieces of paper card, you will meticulously construct an insanely charming little beastie that fully capable of shooting seriously devastating pinhole images
• 43 individual pieces are sitting tight - ready to be punched out, rolled up, stacked, shimmied, & glued. If you've ever fantasized about getting "Back to Basics," then this is the opportunity of a lifetime
• Can you taste the delicious anticipation of building this compact masterpiece? Then be sure to keep your lips moist to sample the pictures that it takes. In the grand tradition of pinhole photography, the Hole-On -Ex sees a super-wide angle view with true geographic lines & no distortion. Colors are vibrant & b&w is deeply contrasted
• The average exposure of 4 seconds on a sunny day turns people into blurs, cars into streaks, and moving clouds into streams of white. Build your relationship with this paper beauty one piece at a time and permit yourself to feel the warm love that only a tiny pinhole can deliver.
• Just be sure to keep it out of the rain!
• PINHOLE: A pinhole camera has no lens. In its place is a an extremely small aperture (f/138 for the Zero Image Pinhole's) through which exterior light is projected onto sensitive film or paper. A lens functions by collecting the light rays outside, inverting them, and focusing them into a smaller image. A pinhole does not focus at all. It merely acts as a "center of projection" inverting the lightrays without re-organizing them.
• The size of the inverted image depends on the distance of the pinhole to the projection surface - a closer distance yields a smaller image and vice-versa. As the hole is not truly a point, it allows more than only one ray from the subject to register on the film.
• This imparts a characteristic "soft focus" effect. Moreover, as the light is not altered, the pinhole has nearly unlimited depth of field, with reasonably close objects registering at the same sharpness as far away objects (okay, REALLY close objects will will be blurred!).
