The Pinhole Camera

A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens but with a tiny aperture, a pinhole – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through the aperture and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box, which is known as the camera obscura effect.

The CAMERA OBSCURA is the most basic form of the CAMERA. A CAMERA adds different mechanical and electronic features to make a picture.

Today, we are going to learn about PINHOLE CAMERAS.

1. We are going to watch this video as a class. It's here in case you want to watch it again.


2. Then, we are going to go to this web site and try an interesting pinhole camera simulator.
