While one could definitely argue that the lo-fi images you can capture with a pinhole camera are an acquired taste, it’s still pretty cool that you can capture images on film with such a simple mechanism.
We’ve all seen pinhole cameras, but this one is pretty extraordinary. It is called Heartbeat and it was custom-made by Korean designer and photographer Kwanghun Hyun. What sets it apart from other pinhole cameras is that it uses a watch movement for its timing mechanism.
This amazingly small pinhole camera was created by Francesco Capponi. As you can see, this camera is actually so small that it can fit on your thumb.
Francesco calls this his Mini Lomo Pinhole, and although it really isn’t a Lomo, it’s incredibly small and cute, and this tiny pinhole camera can actually take pictures, which is even cooler.
It’s Strange & Wonderful Wednesday, and as I was perusing the offerings of the Internet I came upon Gerard Vlemmings’ – aka The Presurfer – link to an article on blogbits about weird cameras. They were weird alright: there was an 18-carat gold plated Pentax LX and even a pistol-shaped camera.
Lomography’s new Diana Multi-Pinhole Operator allows users to use up to 3 pinholes in one shot. The pinholes create a ripple, cross-eyed effect that only worsens becomes crazier once you add the color filters to the mix.
