    The pinhole in a body cap is available here for $30:

    If you use long exposures, you’ll find that clouds in the scene don’t look like you remember. Most of my success with pinholes has been outdoor on still days with a tripod.

    They’re actually quite a lot of fun to take different photos with. Everything in the field of view is equally sharp, which is to say, “slightly blurry” (the blurriness is an artifact of the large diffraction blurs caused by the tiny aperture).

    I would have thought that It would work on every camera.

      It will pretty much work with any digital camera with a lens cap you can put a hole in.
