    That's great Barry! 110 degrees sounds about right --- get close, then closer!

    Thanks Ned and Don. Another reason I reduced the pinhole size down to 0.4mm is to allow closer focus. I figured that the 0.5mm would not focus under about 1.5m, whereas the 0.4 should be OK to about 10".

    Don, I'm thinking about pinhole portraiture, perhaps a 4x5 dedicated portrait camera and higher speed film. The idea of a selfie of my old mug is not a pretty thought. That job is at the end of a long queue at the moment.

    Cheers to both of you.

    Great to see you got the vignetting sorted out.
    As for references, don't forget the "Mr Pinhole site" http://www.mrpinhole.com and the wonderful Pinhole designer program (windows only) http://www.pinhole.cz/en/pinholedesigner/ and for some inspiration - http://fslashd.com

    Personal Ive just finished a 11x14 camera which is adjustable from 210mm to 300 mm.

    Thanks for those references, Shane. I'd forgotten the f/D site... Keir actually used one of my images in 2015, but I can't post it here because it's 2x3. But a great inspirational site. The 11x14 camera sounds interesting. Do you plan to use it for film or paper (or both), and are you using interchangeable pinholes?
