“It’s true that Pinhole photography is dubbed as vintage by many these days. However, we believe that there are still great opportunities to implement this simple yet elegant style in the contemporary photography. What many don’t understand is that pinhole lens signifies a foundational concept in photography – the camera obscura. It represents a unique timeless style with distinct awe-inspiring images. Unfortunately, this panoramic photography style is fast on its way to obsolescence today and we certainly can’t let that happen. Actually there is a dire need for a technological innovation that can modify this centuries-old technique at par with the modern digital cameras. And thus, we have come up with our Thingyfy Pinhole Pro that marks an innovative update to DSLR pinhole photography. It’s the first professional Pinhole lens for digital cameras which enables an unmatched real-time experimentation and manipulation with digital pinhole photography found nowhere else. But such a state of the art project demands a high-end financial backup and thus this crowdfunding campaign. Your generous support would help us to save the beauty of pinhole photography,” stated Boz, the CEO of Thingyfy.
The company is looking forward to produce Pinhole Pro for all major SLR & DSLR models in the market today, such as Nikon, Canon, Sony etc. It would also utilize the fund for advanced research & design on the lens to make it suitable for Micro 4/3 photographers.
Thingyfy Pinhole Pro opens up a wide number of possibilities for digital photographers interested in pinhole photography.

It will help the shutterbugs to:
• Enhance knowledge on camera obscura, light travel and photography fundamentals
• Shoot analogue or digital still images and attain long sharp exposures with smallest pinholes
• Shoot video in medium to high ISO with large video pinholes
• Shoot long exposure authentic TimeLapse with durational motion blur
“One of the main aspects that keep Pinhole Pro ahead of fixed pinhole lens is its cutting edge precision designed lens coupled with tactile moving parts. Such an advanced design assures the desired feel of mechanical complexity that you will never find with the fixed counterparts.”
A good host of rewards are waiting for the backers. These include Limited edition Pinhole Pro Lens for the major digital cameras or Micro 4/3, a special opportunity to have the name laser engraved on the lens and many such amazing goodies.
