A pinehole camera whatitis?


Warning!  Drugs are unnecessary to view the following pics !


here the guilty: a simple Barilla Pasta box and 2mm hole in front 

A pinhole camera is a very simple camera with no lens and a single very small aperture. Simply explained, it is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. Cameras using small apertures, and the human eye in bright light both act like a pinhole camera.


The smaller the hole, the sharper the image, but the dimmer the projected image. Optimally, the size of the aperture should be 1/100 or less of the distance between it and the screen.

A pinhole camera's shutter is usually manually operated because of the lengthy exposure times, and consists of a flap of some light-proof material to cover and uncover the pinhole. Typical exposures range from 5 seconds to hours and sometimes days.
A common use of the pinhole camera is to capture the movement of the sun over a long period of time. This type of photography is called Solargraphy.

A good book here

An Irish Rudge rebirth

My friend Bill just send me an email regarding an Irish friend of him who is crasy about Rudge motorcycles.
I just give you the email and the pictures he send me. Enjoy.




Hi,
I really enjoyed the video you posted on JJ. I love specials and that Rudge is a very tasty special. It is one machine I would love to have in my garage!! My highest praise to Jean-Claude. My friend in Ireland, Frank Byrne, is a big Rudge fan. His son Ed is also very enthusiastic about Rudges. He sent me a few photos of the engine. It has just been rebuilt but I can't remember the name of the builder. I will e-mail him too. Heres the other two photos of the engine he sent and a photo from the 30s. Its Stanley Woods (standing) and Charlie Manders. Its in the Isle of Man 1933.. And another Rudge at an Irish vintage run last year. I have no info on it except that Frank said it was scruffy but very fast.
Take care.
Bill
