How to make pinhole camera that takes film

Any camera that has a detachable lens with a body cap can be turned into a pinhole camera very quickly.

First detach the camera lense.

Make a pinhole in some aluminium with a needle. Sand the pinhole to flatten the imprint of the needle

Drill a hole in the camera body cap.

Tape the aluminium pinhole to the inside of the body cap

Attach the body cap to the camera. The tape on the outside of the body cap is to keep the camera dust free when not in use.

Load film and experiment with your new pinhole camera - don't forget to remove the external tape when taking photos.
