I recently finished off a second roll of film in my Ondu pinhole camera. This time I was more careful to ensure the camera stayed completely still on a tripod while shooting, hoping for greater sharpness than with my first film. While I enjoyed the process of using the Ondu, disappointingly the images were still consistently soft. I realise I’m never going to achieve the same crispness I get from a digital camera, but pinhole cameras are supposed to give greater depth of field and I’ve seen better results from other examples.
I decided to share some of my pictures here despite the softness as I still like the retro feel they have. I’ve been sent a new, slightly smaller pinhole by the good folks at Ondu, which should help with sharpness. All I need to do now is fit it and get out shooting again!
