Thingyfy Pinhole Pro is an innovative update to DSLR pinhole photography. Pinhole photography has long held a vintage and DIY aesthetic, discounted by many perhaps because of the breakthroughs in optics since its creation. But there is still room for this simple, elegant implementation in contemporary photography. The pinhole lens embodies a foundational concept in photography- the camera obscura. The images it produces are distinct, and unique in nature. With so many options on the market, as well as the ability for anyone to build their own, why do we not see more of this photography in practice?[/vc_column_text]
The aim for the Pinhole Pro is to make an aggressive attempt at re-introducing the viability and opportunity this lens affords to the professional and hobbyist photographers.
With Thingyfy Pinhole Pro photographers are able to:
- Learn about camera obscura, photography fundamentals, light travel
- Shoot digital or analogue still photos. get sharp, long exposures using the smallest pinholes being offered in the market
- Shoot video. With medium to high ISO shoot at 30 or 60 FPS using the selection of large video pinholes
- Shoot TimeLapse – authentic, long exposure time-lapse with durational motion blur
Comparing the options of Pinhole Pro and what it offers the photographer, along with the ease of use switching between apertures – this lens brings a precision and quality that no other product currently offers. Combined with the aesthetic appeal of machined all metal components and tactile moving parts, this modern update brings the treasured aesthetic of pinhole photography into the contemporary landscape of new media.
We want to position Pinhole Pro at the intersection of two existing products: the Zero Optik 35mm Pinhole (Cost around $1500 USD with minimal functionality) and the Skink Pancake Pinhole (Lower end entry level lens cost around $50 USD). There’s currently no other similar lens in the market that can allow users to switch between different apertures and sharpness in a single pinhole lens.
