Dirkon – The Paper Pinhole Camera

Personally, I find the HOLE idea, (excuse the pun) absolutely amazing. Pinhole is magical in that it requires no sensor, no mechanical parts and no lens. While it is possible to use a pinhole in place of a lens on a digital camera to take pinhole images, a tiny hole in a simple box with a piece of light sensitive material inside is far more impressive.
