Recently i aquired a replacement body cap for my digital camera. I bought my first digital camera only a few years ago and while its great for some types of Photography i found it lacking in the landscape.

Having come from a large format (4×5 and 8×10) i felt that the digital, while fine for the web and small prints, falls apart even more quickly than 35mm film as the prints get larger.

The Pin Hole, being inherently soft already can overcome this issue.

The long exposure times and the inability to frame the image in the view finder offer their own challanges.

It is a good subject! I have seen a lot of pinhole photography, but not done it myself. Are you saying that your attachment images are pinholes? So you crop them, yes?

FYI: Printing scale from digital vs. analog (film) is dependent on many factors, most important image resolution. But also printing resolution. And other factors. Scanning 8×10 film at high resolution on a drum scanner can give you incredible printed results, but I have also seen DSLR prints also gorgeous. It depends on many things. And I know a little bit about high-quality photo printing. ;-)

Yes, all the above images were made with a DSLR pinhole and are not cropped. Per Lord Rayliegh’s Law, for optimum results the size of the pinhole is a function of the distance between the pinhole and the film plane. This resulted in a somewhat long focal length.

I know a little bit about high-quality photo printing as well and have found that after about 5x DSLR prints only look good when the viewing distance is increased, but that is a topic for another thread.

Good info, Doyle.

Yes, printing and viewing distance is another subject. Start a Topic! :)
