    Cool. I've been thinking about making such a thing, but I sort of never moved forward. Take this in the middle of a blooming garden and you'll have a true WOOOW effect.
    BTW, would you share some details about the shutter that you used to open all holes simultaneously?

    @adash: thanks! Yes, this rooftop was just a first test, flowers would be great. I didn't actually open all the shutters simultaneously. I removed and replaced the bits of black tape that I used as shutters one by one.

    How long did you expose it then?

    Eh, a few seconds (about 3) per pinhole. I'm not the most organised experimenter I'm afraid...

    Great stuff !! I am building a 180° three-hole medium format pinhole at the moment.

I made a round pinhole camera with six pinholes all around, initially I wanted to take a 360° picture, but I realized that wouldn't work (because of quantum, I mean, optics). Still, I went ahead and made the camera anyway because I thought the result might be fun. It's a sort of scrambled 360° panorama, with bits of me thrown in as well. I'm happy with the result. I had to scan the long negative in three separate bits and stitch the images together. You can see I changed scanner settings half way through...
