also called “camera obscura,” the pinhole camera is a lens-less camera / images are formed simply by the beam of light that passes through a small hole of a container & these images can be captured in film \ the sharpness or softness of the image is determined by the size of the pinhole / the exposure is determined by the available light & the size of the pinhole \ <200 asa color film was what i had handy> / to open the pinhole, i lift the viewfinder \ so far, i have used it to take pictures outside in bright light / i needed to keep the pinhole open for 1.5 seconds as the user guide suggested / indoors with low light, i would need to keep it open for 3.5 minutes to take a picture \ can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out
