Head on over to

Thingyfy Pinhole Pro S
Bought it for a Sony a6000. Came in about 2 months from Canada.
With 2 filters! Except they didn’t send the filters that I ordered. After sale - product support seemed to have vanished.
Exposure has been hard to set up right. Not giving up on it...
that’s a shame. Fun little lens.
You would be hard pressed to get working stabilisation with exposures in the seconds...if on tripod it’s not needed anyway
Nice & Thanks :)
here it is a website about pinholes / / you calculate the data
Thingyfy is hard to reach for customer service. Got the Pro S18 for my Sony a6000. Nice packaging. They shipped me 2 ND- 2 filters not a UV filter.
That’s a shame to hear
I just got this from Kickstarter a couple weeks back and couldn't figure out how the heck to use it. (I mostly bought it to learn what a pin-hold lens is good for). This tape cleared it all up... thx!
You have to stop up the aperture. The reason the pictures are too dark.
It’s a pinhole lens. There is no aperture. Or lens :-) It’s literally a hole.
@PhotoJoseph Technically there is an aperture - aperture just means opening - it's just a fixed size and very small (like f100 or more). It's why the dust and lint on the sensor is so pronounced (a tip to find dust is to stop down your lens)
On the Thingyfy indiegogo it says the focal length is 26mm for mirrorless cameras.
Right on, thanks!
that is for the original pinhole pro, the S is either 11 or 18mm depending on how much vignetting you want on a sony camera, for m43 its 11mm only
Thanks for the update.
