After launching the world’s first pinhole lens with a variable aperture, Thingify is presenting another awesome innovation for filmmakers and photographers. The Pinhole Pro X is the world’s first zoom pinhole lens. Designed for various mirrorless, DLSR, and Micro 4/3 mounts, it will give you that vintage lo-fi look no matter which camera you’re using.
Pinhole photography has had an interesting life. It started off as the most basic fundamental way to capture an image. Despite becoming “obsolete” as lens technology developed, it’s still one of the first types of camera often taught to kids learning photography. They make their own from scratch and then go out and shoot with it. It’s photography at its most simple.
In the digital age, pinhole photography has started to make something of a comeback. Some make their own pinholes, while others buy modified DSLR body caps online. The Thingyfy Pinhole Pro, though, really takes pinhole photographer to the extreme. What makes it unique, and pretty cool, is that it features a variable aperture, with pinhole sizes ranging from 0.1 to 0.8mm in diameter.
