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!

The COOPH photographers used this manual.
