The Pinhole Factory - pinhole cameras and accessories exclusive to Pinhole Solutions


Pinhole photography is a The Pinhole Factory range of cameras and accessories from Pinhole Solutionswonderful way of recapturing the pioneer spirit of early photography while at the same time learning the photographic techniques that modern The Tower - taken on the Silver Gemelectronic cameras have helped us overlook. We want to give you the opportunity to join this fun hobby and to this end we are introducing an extended range of cameras, produced under the Pinhole Factory label and available exclusively through us.

Based in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, The Pinhole Factory is producing a complete range of top quality pinhole cameras and accessories with exclusive distribution through our mail order service.

Double Etched Pinhole Lenses made in the UK
Laser cut pinhole lenses
We are very pleased to offer these new pinhole lenses as an alternative to laser cut lenses. I think these are a more "natural" type of manufactured pinhole as the etching process creates a saucer shaped depression around the pinhole on both sides of the shim so you do not have the tube effect that is made by the laser cutting process. These pinhole lenses are available in five different sizes in a 1cm disc: 0.1mm,0.2mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm and 0.5mm. Also included is a full instruction leaflet with a focal length/f-number chart and suggestions for alternative types of pinhole cameras.The exposure calculator which is enclosed is a great help for determining the exposure for any type of pinhole camera.

The cost of each is £15.00. inc. P & P (if you need advice on which size is best for you, please phone or e-mail and we will be happy to discuss which will be right for your pinhole camera design).

The Keyring Classic
The Keyring Classic Exposure Calculator from The Pinhole Factory. is the latest version of the Pinhole Factory's Brass exposure calculator. This can be used with any pinhole camera and any exposure meter to calculate how long the exposure is with pinhole camera or lens - it's a must for all pinhole photographers. All you need to do is rotate the dial to your meter setting, then read off the exposure time by your pinhole aperture. The calculator also has a handy key ring so it can be attached to your camera case or a set of keys.


The Classic Pinhole Exposure Calculator, Key ring, is priced at £12 inc. VAT and P &P.

The Sunreis/Sunset Calculator and Compass from Pinhole SolutionsNew to our range is The Sunrise/Sunset Calculator and Compass.
As an aid to all photographers, house buyers and gardeners this handy device will help with the preparation and planning of all outdoor photography, house purchasing or conservatory installation and deciding where to place and get the most from your valuable new plants.

We all know that the sun should rise in the East and set in the West, but this is not very accurate as the tilt in the axis of the Earth means that sunrise and sunset varies throughout the year by as much as 70 degrees in six months. So if you are planning for a future landscape photograph or a major project it would help to know where and when the sun will be rising or setting in six months time.

Our price is only £30 including P&P
