Anybody try the a7 series as a pinhole camera?
« on: November 07, 2015, 12:41:19 PM »

... and if so, did you use a commercial pinhole adapter like the Holga or just drill out a bodycap?  Any thoughts on this wuld be welcome :)

Not yet, though I have a Leica M pinhole body cap I could use via adapter. Using the same cap on a film body some years ago was fairly unsatisfying. IMO "full frame" isn't full enough to create a distinctive pinhole look. A 6x6cm frame is better, and a sheet of 4x5" film better still.

But I guess I'll give it a go on the Sony and see what happens.
