    Do you Pinhole?

    If you do this might be of interest to you. It's generated some buzz over on the Micro 4/3rds forum.

    cute

    yes, I like pinhole, but I prefer the look of pinhole on larger formats ... 4/3 is too small. 120 roll film is about the smallest I like to go

    It may not be like larger format pinhole, but I like the samples they posted.
    I'll be interested to see what you get with it.

    Has anyone used one of the Lensbaby Composers with the zone plate 'lens' fitted on mFT? I'd like to see some results with that setup too.

    Re: Do you Pinhole?

    I made an optimally sized pin-hole for ~50mm focal length on 35mm film some years back and gave it a try. On such a small format I wasn't thrilled with the results and it'd be twice as bad on m43 so I'm not inclined to try it. Always meant to do it on my 4x5 but never got around to it...

    well the good thing about the G1 at least is the dust removal works well ... as you can see above in my pinhole example there is not really all that much.

    Who needs a macro lens to photograph dust?
