    If I buy/make a pinhole body cap for my 35mm camera, the image won't cover the film? How small an area are we talking about? Or am I wrong?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Whew, thanks Vic! Now if they'd just get them back in stock.

    Dumb question: Are you able to use the TTL meter with that pinhole cap?

    My Nikon pinhole body cap covers at full 35 mm frame.

    Yes the TTL seems to work fine and I also use the chart that came with the 'lens'. And I bracket-isn't that what 35mm is for?
