Nice attempt, have you tried it on a digital body, if so what settings etc.

Interesting, hadn't noticed you prefer film.

Has anybody else tried pinhole work on film or digital?

I've thought about it a few times but never got round to it - should pick up a spare body cap really and give it a go

It is on my list to try. I have been thinking of getting one of those Lomo medium format panoramic pinhole cameras for about 40 quid. Lee Frost has published some articles on pinhole work.

Have you seen the one that used a aircraft hanger with a hole in the door as the pinhole? Amazing thing!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I've tried it on digital... wasn't as successful as I'd hoped
* Took a K-mount body cap
* Drilled something like a 5mm hole in the middle
* Took a piece of thin copper foil
* Carefully put a hole in the middle with a fine needle
* Glued the foil over the hole in the cap

It's fun to try!
