Skink Pinhole Pancake in Mirrorless Photo Tips – Review by Joe Farace

The following two images were made by Joe Farace of Mirrorless Photo Tips who has been using the Skink Pinhole Pancake for mFT cameras. Here is his story, he says:

One of the things I like to do (as I’ve mentioned before) is customize my cameras. In scouring the Web for these gadgets and gizmos I sometimes stumble across other interesting photographic items, such as the Skink Pinhole Pancake lens, that’s available more many different kinds of cameras, including mirrorless.
Skink’s is a little different than other traditional pinhole lenses in that it has a modular design that uses disks, zone plates or zone sieves that can be installed between the retaining rings in the center of the lens. (I was unable to get any of the optional plates or sieves to test for today’s post.)
While the Skink Pinhole Pancake is constructed significantly better than my9mm Olympus f/8.0 Fisheye Body Cap lens it’s about the same size. The focal length is 16mm (32mm equivalent) that I wish was wider and the aperture is f/90. Yup, that’s not a typo. Traditional pinhole lenses create relatively sharp images with exposure times ranging from one second to several minutes. With a zone plate or zone sieve, photos shot with the Skink Pinhole lens can be made without a tripod and if lighting conditions permit higher shutter speeds. Without a plate or sieve, I decided to increase the ISO settings to get shutter speeds close enough to handhold and hedged my bets by shooting with an Olympus OM-D EM-5 that has five-axis in-body image stabilization.
