When old technology meets new

Fascinating things happen when you combine old and new technology, such as putting vintage lenses on a modern camera. Or as in this extreme case, going back to the origins of photography by making a simple camera obscura, that is basically just a little hole (0,4 mm) without any lens what so ever.

The modern, digital camera is surprisingly fit for this experiment with its high resolution and sensitivity, as well as colour balance control. And best of all, you can see the result of various settings immediately on the display.

Camera obscura This picture was taken using 20 megapixel camera, with a 0,4 mm hole and ISO 16000 at 1/50 second. It has been slightly adjusted in Photoshop, another modern tool.
