    I'm a zero45 owner and I don't think they're worth the premium price tbh

    There's also this guy selling cameras under the name of Noon Pinhole.

    Personally, I go for Skink Pinhole (also here) products. They're pre-made discs of whatever size you need, that fit in an M42-threaded disc, which comes with whatever adapter to your camera of choice (I got EF to begin with). There's also an L39 version with no adapter needed, and they do adapters for Copal shutters too.

    Zörk also do a pinhole set, it's meant to be mounted on a lens filter thread and act as a tiny aperture. I got a set cheap off fleabay, I'm just mounting mine direct-to-shutter.

    Also, does the Travelwide with Pinwide insert count?

    Wonderful photographs have been made with some of these. Also Ilford's titan cameras.

    I would also encourage anyone interested in pinhole to try building a simple one. It does not need to be complicated or expensive, it is a lot of fun, and there really is a unique kind of satisfaction in using a camera you've made yourself.

    Lomography has their share, including a Holga pinhole...

    These are no pinholes in the common meaning.

    They rather are apertures intended to substitute the original one for a smaller one. To yield larger DOF.

    Due to its position it likely is to introduce vignetting and also distortion.

    The Natasha line of cameas look fantastic. How does one go about purchasing from this guy? Does he not have a proper website?

    I've been rather enjoying using one of the new Ondu cameras from Slovenia. I believe they are currently working on some 3D models.

    He uses his facebook page: just post a message there or react when he offers a new camera he made.
    His email address (for Paypal payments): jerry66@ms91.url.com.tw or chenjerry@kimo.com

    I've bookmarked every one of these sites. They would be great, functional pieces to have just for their beauty.
