Lenses are obviously some of the most talked about pieces of photography equipment out there. However, there's one type of photography that requires no lens at all. This neat video follows a photographer as he spends a day shooting landscapes with a pinhole camera.
Using a Zero Image camera, Craig Roberts of e6 Vlogs created this fun video that follows him as he spends a day shooting pinhole images on film. Pinhole cameras are rather interesting (you might have made them with a shoebox or Pringles can as a kid), as they don't use a lens, only a small hole drilled in the front of the camera to allow light through, so small that the camera Roberts is using essentially has a 25mm f/138 lens. It's a delicate balance with pinhole cameras, as reducing the diameter of the opening reduces the size of the circle of confusion projected onto the film plane, thereby creating a sharper image, but reducing the diameter too far makes you start to bump into the wave properties of light, namely diffraction, thereby reducing sharpness. Either way, it's about as minimal a setup a photographer could possibly have, and it's a vastly different way of shooting.
