    the image quality is amazing..... :noes:

    edit: most pix are taken with medium size hole. the big hole was too big and the small hole was too small. a too large hole gives you a blurry pic and too small of a hole also gives you a blurry pic because of diffraction

    How long are you exposing light to the camera?

    exposure with iso 1600 is around 30 secs indoors, around 1/10 outdoors

    cereal boxes don't have lcds and compact flash slots and fancy stuff so stfu :fawk:

    this is a high tech pinhole camera :big grin:

    i'm sure there is a mathematical formula to calculate the best pin size for the best quality image, but its probably easier to just experiment with different sizes

    because I don't have a remote shutter dealy and I'm limited by the max 30 sec exposure in non-bulb mode... and the amount of light getting to the sensor when using the camera indoors needs up to 30s of exposure. outdoors I used a high iso so I can get a handholdable shutter speed.
