This was taken with my Panoramic pinhole camera, that is made from 2 old 120 film cameras hacked together.

The best way to describe it is a camera with no lens, the pinhole camera uses a thin piece of brass with a very tiny pinhole in it that makes the picture. ( Lensless photography)

If you go to and type in pinhole camera you will have more info than you will know what to do with, but be warned you will be hooked, I now own 11 pinhole cameras ranging from 35mm to 8 x 10, 5 of them I built my self.

Would it be possible to make a digital pinhole camera?

create a lens with no glass just the pinhole and assuming the camera is flexible enough to allow the timings needed?

A pinehold camera has a lens otherwise it would not take a photo. It is however a unique kind of lens that is easier to understand when seen than when explained.:-):-).

Never the less cool shot.

If you go to and type in lensless photography you will see that pinhole cameras have no glass lens.
