Why would you pay $33 for a lens cap with a hole in it?

But, I might try making one myself...

I had taken a book out of the library that was published in the '70s that had a whole chapter on pinhole cameras. If you try making something like this, you might check out an old photography book out of the library (there's formulas about the size of the hole and focal lengths - I just glanced at that chapter).

Heat up a pin on the gas stove for a few minutes for it to go red, and poke it through a carefully marked out body cap without moving it side to side (it will be very easy to move, like a knife through butter)

I made one with the cap from my 2x teleconverter
