DIY: Matchbox Pinhole Camera

instr09.jpg

Here’s a nice way to make yourself a camera for almost no cost whatsoever. All you’ll need is a full and an empty roll of 35mm film, a matchbox, some black tape, and a bit of tin foil. The finished product leaves you with a camera capable of shooting pictures at f90, which mixed with some ISO100 film, should leave you with some nice shots at a relativly short exposure time. If you do it right, the exposure time should be around one second in daylight. Take the jump for some sample pics the camera took.
