Take off the front part of the LomoKino. Remove the 6 small screws on the back of the front part. Take a look at the inside parts and remember where and how you remove certain parts. Unscrew the aperture lever/disc and carefully remove it by pulling it out from the lens/shutter part. Remove the 4 screws that hold this part.
Build a little pinhole disc, e.g. out of a piece of thin foil, in this case I used aluminium foil and double sided adhesive tape. Use a needle to make a very small hole (note: I painted the front part of the pinhole and the back of it black to avoid light-leaks and reflections). Stick it on the part where the shutter/lens was before.
Put the front part back together with the 6 screws and don’t lose any of the other parts if you want to go back to the normal LomoKino later.
That’s it, your LomoKino is now constantly exposing through a pinhole. Use your hand to cover the pinhole before advancing the film after each exposure (especially if you want to move the camera in between).
A tripod is a good idea. Depending on your pinhole, exposure times start from 1-3 seconds on a bright sunny day . Dark conditions can become quite exhausting; remember you want to shoot 144 frames, and each one takes a minute or 10…
Extra tip: you can build your own kind of shutter on the front of the LomoKino. Just make sure the “shutter“ opens fully, revealing all of the front hole or closes completely, not letting any light in that could influence the image.
