    Two for the price of one... above - the photo agency that raises money for charity

    The picture - done with a Nikon D70, with a dustcap converted to a pinhole... drill a big hole in it, and cover the hole with foil - pinprick and le-voila

    I made a pin hole "lens" a while back, out of an extra body cap that I had. I put a pin in a drill and just drilled the hole directly into the cap. Then I covered the hole with a piece of clear plastic to keep dust out. I have seen them for sale at B&H but I don't think they have dust cover on them.

    You could also do by drilling your hole in a lens cap. that way the lens would keep the dust out of the camera.

    ...just remember to take the lens cap off before you drill it!
