I made a lens for my sony a6000 from an unused lens converter aluminum foil and masking tape to demo my students.

You don't need a 3-D printer and dedicated workshop to be a :bob_ross: (although they do help if you have access to them - which I don't 😉 )

The hardest part was to center the hole really. I did a first one with multiple holes punched until I found it, then I created a second one using the first as template

@eylul Cool! I'm going to have to try this when I have a chance!

@kelsonv its really really fun! its also not quite perfect yet, I think I have some light leaking still so there will be more tape (black tape this time) involved :)

@eylul I made one! But the pictures are super blurry. I think I have the distance wrong or maybe the pinhole is too wide? How did you determine the position for the foil? And what did you use for the hole? I used a sewing needle.
