    Pinhole :smile: I picked it up at the recent Serious Compacts get together in London, when we visited the Photographers' Gallery (well worth a visit). I took it with me to Santorini on hols and have just got the results back.

    So - here is a pinhole shot:

    ...and here, for comparison, is the same scene taken with a Nikon FM3a and Leitaxed Leica 28mm Elmarit-R:

    for goodness sake Bill, it's all blurry and out of focus.
    at 100% crop I can't even see the individual grains of sand in the rendering!

    I like looking at pinhole shots taken by others, but I have never enjoyed taking them myself. More, please.

    Pinhole wins! I just love the kind of mood it gives. Will have to try it one day.

    I don't need a pinhole camera to take blurry pictures which is just as well because I have developed a soft spot for them. I like the blurry black and white one best. Being in colour and in focus is just sooooooooooo overrated!

    Yeah for the pinhole! Was out shooting pinhole myself today. Never did it before though so might not be as nice as yours [or even exposed right lol]
