Has anyone made a successful pinhole for the NEX ?

If so, do you have any details of what you did to make it work ? Body cap type thing is what I'm thinking. I know there are some commercial ones available, but I'm after more low-fi DIY affair. Cheers !

maked one for my Canon 550D which i was using before i bought nex.

ts very easy. Just put a pinhole on bodycap and you have lens :)

How much the hole is smaller that much your picture is sharper and unfortunately darker...

And how much its far to sensor is rhat much it becomes tele :) For example you can use a macro tube and you have tele pinhole lens :)

I've never found pinholes to be particularly effective on digital cameras. They work fine on film, but not on digital. You end up with a blurry mess on digital for some reason.

And yes, they are blurry on film, but not as bad as on digital.

I made a hole in a body cap ( fairly large ) then made a pihole in a piece of aluminium and taped it into the larger cap hole. The result was, well, disappointing. Maybe I'm missing the point, but the images were nowhere near in focus, like this :-

Maby for you is Dutch difficult, the same as for me Englisch Then you can perhaps translate it with google. I hope you can enjoy it. See the link below.
