Pinhole (2)

Made another pinhole camera.  This time for Computer Vision.
It's really more of a scope that you look through for a picture.

Since there's no film, taking a picture involves sticking your camera in the viewing end, covering the whole thing for light-tightness and setting the shutter for something like 30" with a wide open aperture.  Loooong noisy exposure and that clichéd out pinhole effect.  Do I smell MySpace photo?  Do I actually know anyone with MySpace anymore?

Enjoy yourselves.
