Campaign Info

Since the success of the former three members of the Pinhole Pro Family, our backers and customers have been asking us to release a version of our professional pinhole lens with different aperture sizes and variable focal lengths. And that's exactly what we're doing right now!

Pinhole Pro Max lens provides an unmatched ability to recreate the aesthetic of old photos and videos with your digital camera. Cycle through the six different apertures  —  from f/36 to f/233 — and variable focal lengths to achieve the bloomy, soft, and sharp pinhole visuals that stand out from the rest.

 

Pinhole Pro Max is the culmination of everything we've learned about pinhole photography —combining a decade of advanced pinhole innovations into the most high-end pinhole lens ever.

  It's designed for those of you who enjoy experimenting and have a unique understanding of the world. By adjusting the right focal length for each aperture, you can effortlessly get sharper images with a beautiful lo-fi and bokeh effect, whether you are shooting in a studio or outside.

 

 

Housing 6 different aperture sizes, Pinhole Pro Max allows you to have more creative control over the images that you capture. Its 0.15 to 0.5 mm precision pinhole aperture is made with micrometer accuracy.

Add 6 different apertures to a variable focal length adjustment design, and you have THE most high-end pinhole photography and video device in the world.

   

Pinhole is photography and videography art in its most original form. However, achieving those unforgettable aesthetics requires high precision engineering and modern state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies.

Create visuals exactly the same way they were taken hundreds of years ago, and pair that with modern high speed, high ISO technologies. The result is stunning and timeless.

The Pinhole Pro community is home to some of the most passionate, creative, out-of-box-thinking photographers and videographers.
  They are always looking for new ways to express themselves, are never afraid of challenges and are ongoingly pushing the creative boundaries.

The enchanting beauty of old-school photography with pinholes continues to captivate even in the age of digital cameras. The lo-fi quality, bokeh, artistic, and out-of-the-box photography and videography capture the attention of all the artists.

  Sharpness, resolution, and speed became the perpetual pursuit of photographers. This trend continues to this day. Photographers like you have begun to realize that high resolution and high specs cannot replace the authenticity of analogue photography that is more personal, original and unfiltered with a timeless "point of view.". Pinhole photography provides just that. After all, it is the closest thing to what the human eye can see.

The Pinhole PRO family products are designed to allow you to effortlessly create photos and videos exactly the same way they were taken hundreds of years ago, but pair these aesthetics with modern high speed, high ISO technologies.

 

Unlike most DIY and commercial pinhole cameras and pinhole lenses that use either mechanical pin punching, chemical etching or laser etching, Pinhole Pro uses a robotic controlled tiny micro-drill that is only 0.05mm in diameter, to preciously drill a perfectly round and smooth pinhole aperture. This process requires state-of-the-art environmental control and vibration reduction, in order to produce the stunning quality of each Pinhole Pro in mass production.
