pinhole cameras

A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens. Basically it is a ligh proof box with a small opening on one side which let light in when you need it. Light from a certain place passes through this single opening and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. Up to a point the smaller the hole is the sharper the image projected will be however the image will be substantially dimmer. The pinhole camera shutter is usualy a light roof flap that can be opened and closed manually.
