digital pinhole

I just made a pinhole lens for my Nikon D70. I used the body cap as the new lens and I made a minuscule hole in the center of it. These were taken at ISO 800 with a 13 second exposure. I think I'll need to make the pinhole a little bigger so I can use shorter exposures.

did you keep your eyes open for the whole thirteen seconds?

do you have another lens cap that doesn't have a hole in it that you can use, or did you change the only one you had?

my brain cannot comprehend how this works. it's so fascinating...

digital, right?

I bought an extra body cap and put a hole in it. I'm tentative about making the hole bigger so I'm going to go outside and see what I can find. Yes, this is a digital camera.
