To me, the idea of pinhole was that I could build it myself with basic raw materials, have a rugged camera that I could pack anywhere without fear of damage (it was cheap - if it's damaged, I could build another one) and then I could produce a very viewable image. It seemed to me to be the most result for the least technology - maximum personal enjoyment with maximum analog photography if you wish.

Somewhere I have pics of the box I built - I'll post them if I can find them

cheers eh?
