Default Stenoflex: Pinhole + Mini Darkroom

On 24 April it is worldwide pinhole day (so thats in 24 days). Would it be nice if you could join the pinholers?

If so, you can now buy Stenoflex: a pinhole box + darkroom.

See this youtube video for more info:

It might be a good opportunity to use the Lensbaby pinhole I never used...

The Stenoflex box sounds interesting, but I think it's a bit too much work for my taste to get a digital print out of it.

By the way, on the same site as the Stenoflex I saw this interesting Leonardo Camera Obscura Kit. It reminds me of my old Brownie. As a kid I used to put a bit of thin white paper on the back of this camera where you normally put the film to make it work like a Camera Obscura.

and in a similar way you can make a panorama pinhole.

and they come in all sizes, in episode 1 of The Genius of Photography there's a Giant pinhole camera which fills a whole room. Scenes of it can be found on the internet, but I'm not sure if it's copyrighted material so I'm not going to post a link.
The DVD of the whole series is worth buying, though.

Pinhole day is getting closer!
I did some practice shots with the lensbaby and found out why it's better to use film: sensor dust! Dust spots you would never see at f32 suddenly pop up, despite the sensor cleaning on my 50D.
It's awful, and I don't think manual cleaning will help in this case.
