Video: How to build a pinhole camera


This week, the COOPH photographers focused on an exciting DIY project: a self-made pinhole camera! Pinhole cameras use the principle of camera obscura, in which light travels through a small hole in a dark box to form a picture. Check out the two different versions they tested and see how the images turned out. What’s your favorite picture? Let us know in the YouTube video comments!
