We mean Pinhole Cameras.
Low tech camera gear at its finest.
And the good folks at Corbis want you to give it a shot. (ouch,sorry about that.)
They had a company design some very cool cameras for you to DIY with, till the cows come home. With full instructions on construction and shooting, you won’t be the discreet shooter, however your images should give you a photographic look like you haven’t seen.
You have to love this litigious world we live in to make Corbis want to write this one up.
Here is the disclaimer from the Corbis site:

Now of course you do know that in the world of stock photos, there are basically 2 agencies: Getty Images and Corbis, and the others that they haven’t each bought yet.
I know, you’ll be telling us about the many other places that handle work, but these are the 2 main players.
Just a bit of FYI.
Now you can have some fun.
