View Full Version : Pinhole size recomemndation

30-Oct-2013, 10:14
Hello all. I know that technically this is not a "lens" question but I didn't know where else it made sense.

I am preparing to try some pinhole work on my 8x10 and I'm not sure what size to start with. I have the option of the following plate/focal length to begin: 16mm, 35mm, 48mm, 73mm, 88mm, 118mm, 151mm, 184mm, 233mm, 288mm, 352mm & 473mm.

As I mentioned I will be using this primarily on 8x10 and 5x7 and I know nothing yet as to coverage (if an issue) with pinhole. I will also be using this landscape and some still life.

Recommendations? Pinhole is new to me so I have much to learn.

Thanks in advance.
