Default Daisy by Pinhole Camera

So I decided to turn my Canon 20d into a pinhole camera. I first took off the lens and put it away. Second, grabbed the body cap and drilled a 1/16th hole into the centre of the body cap then cut a very small piece of paper and taped in onto the back side of the cap covering the hole. Then with a very tiny pin I pricked an even smaller hole through the paper and made sure that hole was dead centre the 1/16th hole I first drilled.

The size of the pin hole does matter as you should not push the pin all the way through as it will make too big a hole. The smaller the better!

Canon 20d, ISO 200, 30 seconds - no lens, just a lens cap.
