Pinhole Camera Gallery


The first images from the Pinhole Camera Project are in. These were taken by school children. We permitted the participating schools to take their cameras down before the summer solstice date so the kids could see their images before the end of the school year.

Hi Claudio Thorell dos Santos,


It was really very strange to receive the pinhole camera went all the way to California to end up in Oulu, Finland. Thanks to Chuck Jopson who belongs to the Etna Astros astronomy club and to Chris Reich who organized 92 of my pinhole cameras to the members of the Etna Astros Club.


Here you see the result of the camera. It was set in Oulu, at 65*00N, 25!30 E from 20.3.-21.6.2007.
