    With all the buzz about the Pinwide lately, I was wondering if any mu-43 users particpated in Worldwide PinHole Photography day <> this year? I've been a pinholist for years, but for the first time this year I tried it with a digital camera, my Oly E-PL1. I used both the Skink pinhole and a homemade wide angle pinhole lens (my pinwide isn't here yet). After careful deliberation, the I chose a a photo for the pinhole day gallery that I made with my home made pinhole.

    Anyone else participate? I'd love to see your submission.

    Not sure,but, it looks kinda like someone used a pinhole in the Washington Post, Metro section on Friday, April 29, 2011. If not it's a similar effect and first I can remember in a newspaper.

    Nice picture. I wouldn't have associated it to pinhole, but I like it - the blur is splendid !

    Thanks for the feedback. the aperture of the pinhole came out too wide, hence the blur (which in this case actually ended up being the perfect amount :). Here is a picture of the home made pinhole lens on my epl-1. I made it with a generic m43 body cap, the bottom of a soda can, and some epoxy putty. Oh, and my trusty dremel tool :)
