I think you read this wrong. It's not $400 dollars. It's only $69. If you want all 3 lenses and accessories it's only $238.
I got the 400 plus price by clicking on the top of the kickstarter homepage, agreed, i didn't read the rest of the page. Still I fiknd it expensiove

Nice shots Macario. Just started playing with one of these also -- I think they work very well in black and white.

The softness (like a painting) is caused by the significant diffraction of the tiny aperture of the pinhole lens.

This is the polar opposite of the typical sharpness obsessed people out there and the reason for modern monster prime lenses.

I usually just add in softness and vignetting in software to emulate the pinhole effect. It is better this way as you can have, for example, a super sharp landscape and a lush looking soft pinhole version with the same image.

You don't need a specific pinhole lens, just use the smallest aperture, say, f22 or f32 etc. and use software too.

At first I wasn't sure if I liked it, but after studying it for a while it does look like a still shot from an anime. It's art. I'm not sure that it's the kind of style that I'd like to shoot but I can see why people might like it. Not bad.

I didn't see them mention it being full frame or cropped or if I can use it on my film camera bodies.

I've got one of the Pinhole Pros from them and I like it a lot. I backed the zoom version as well.

It's not for everyone nor all subjects, but it can be a fun lens to play around with.

Different apertures give wildly different results.

Also in daylight, even at ISO 100 I can't go much longer than 10 seconds without blowing out the image. The K-1 is just that sensitive.

More than 400 dollars -this is robbery. If you have a 42 mm adapter, in this case the cheapest ones are good enough, take an m 42 extension tube for macro and glue a thin metal folie with a hole in the center, try different hole sizes til get your best compromise between sharpness and light infall.. Different lengths on the tube give you many pinhole primes, everybody knows that primes in generel are superieur.
Methinks you misread it. The $420,000 is how much they've raised so far out of an initial goal of $5000. That's astounding.

The variable aperture pinhole is great if you want different feelings for the image. the zoom will be a single aperture lens.

You can use a pinhole lens on any format and medium (digital or film) with two slight caveats:

First, due to the resolution constraints on pinholes, they produce better results on larger formats.

Second, due to the very small apertures (e.g., this one is f/184 on a DSLR) and associated long shutter times, you can run into reciprocity failure on film and dark current noise issues on digital.

They really are fun, though, because the depth of field is nearly infinite. Everything more than a few focal lengths from the lens will be nearly equally sharp (or soft).

taking the photo with the pinhole is part of the fun.

Pinhole and DSLR is really missing the point. Pinholes can be really wide, but not at 40some mm in front of the film plan. 11mm on 6x9 film is fun. Build your own pinhole.
