    So let me get this straight...

    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

    My finney pinhole body cap covers the film frame on my Minolta MD series camera.

    Looks like this: http://www.freestylephoto.biz/sc_pro...=2203&pid=5639
    Holga: if it was any more analog, you'd need a chisel.

    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.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    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?
