    Hi, I’m a 12 year old kid, in New Zealand, and am wanting to do a science fair project on pinhole photography. Does anyone have any ideas on what to base my question/ hypothesis on-aperture, shuttter speed, light… I really don’t know. Can anyone recommend a really comprehensive site that isn’t difficult. Thanks

    No, there will always be a need for film since it comes in sizes a whole lot bigger than teeny-weenie camera sensors which means you don’t have to enlarge it. Film does not have sensor noise. It is used for photographing consumer products. The better looking photo will snag the most consumers which translates into more money.

    I have a pinhole by a brand called Ho Lal La, it uses photographic paper instead of film so I get to develop my photos with just 2 chemicals in my closet with the red bulb on. Which is cool because I live in Istanbul, not many darkrooms still exist, and the ones that do are super expensive! Also, I’m kinda freaked out by the photo shop developer guy seeing any personal shots. :)
