Photographers looking for a way to be a little more creative with their DSLR or SLR cameras may be interested in a new professional pinhole lens which has been created by Thingyfy based in Toronto Canada.
The Pinhole Pro lens is the world’s first multi-aperture DSLR pinhole lens which has been specifically designed for serious photographers and cinematographers. check out the demonstration video below to learn more about what you can expect from the Pinhole Pro lens and its results.
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?
What’s missing is an innovation in technology to bring the user experience of modern digital cameras to this centuries old technique. Thingyfy Pinhole Pro makes a simple, small change- multiple pinholes, but that change allows for real-time experimentation and manipulation that just doesn’t exist in any other model. The unique properties of pinhole photography need to be exposed and played with. New uses discovered. With the products currently available on the market, all one can do is demo the principal at hand. 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.
