Mono Hole – DD Pinhole Comparison

Mono-DDP Test(1)A09A0269

Another day, I demonstrated the effects of the Pinhole to a sceptic in a Park.

So, the Photo above is the reference shot by a Fish-eye lens.

Mono-DDP Test(2)78-001

Photo above are the images made by [Wide-angle Mono Pinhole] (Left)

and the Pinhole alone (= Wide-angle lens was removed) (Right)

Mono-DDP Test(3)79-001

And here, the Photos were made by [Concentric Double-density Pinhole]

with Wide-angle lens attached (Left) and without (Right)

Mono-DDP Test(4)A09A0478

A Fish-eye image of  “Pink Forget-me-not” (I think) — note,

even Fish-eye lens has limited depth of field.

Mono-DDP Test(5)80-001

Left was [Wide-angle Mono (single) Pinhole] (Orange cast was caused

by a light-leak.)  Right was [Wide-angle DD-Pinhole]

Mono-DDP Test(6)81-001

Left = Wide-angle Mono-Pinhole.  Right = Pinhole alone and close to the flowers.

(Remember, Pinhole has no focus —– even no view-finder image = too dark.  

Therefore all those photos were the blind-shots)

Mono-DDP Test(7)82-001

Left = Wide-angle DD-Pinhole.  

Right = Pinhole alone and close to the flowers. (The line in the left side

was caused by an internal reflection.)


At least, my friend was convinced that the effect was not by a digital

manipulation though still sceptic about the significance of the image.  

That’s a matter of the taste Sir.  😀

    What a wonderful world, through a pinhole! 🙂

      Flowers looks wonderful by any lens,
      even without a lens ! 🙂

    I always really enjoy these comparisons, and especially the pinhole images. I wonder what it is about the lack of focus that I find so appealing. 🙂 I feel like there is a diffusion of light, too, that softens the images in a way that I like.

      The Pinhole I’ve used was equivalent of F250 = small enough to make looks pan-focus (hence no need to focus) though,
      the size of the hole is large enough (in comparison to the the size of Photon) to make the image blurred.
      Especially, the outer hole of Double Pinhole is 1.5 mm = too big to make an intelligible image.

    Oh, I like these, Yoshizen. The softness is lovely. Fascinating pinhole work!

      Thank you Karen.
      But, I think I have to learn from you more.

        Ha! I have never tried pinhole work, I’m sure I could learn a lot from you! : )

    REally interesting-beautiful outcomes.

      Thank you Elena. I’m happy to see the clear results too.
