Subject: Leica M pinhole camera
From: Charles E. Dunlap <>

I would like to fix a pinhole to a Leica M. I could do this very simply, 
but I would rather have the pinhole fitted to an M-mount (possibly a 
couple to vary the focal length). This way I could switch easily from 
pinhole to regular lens. I know where I can get some laser-drilled 
pinholes in brass shim, and I have access to a machine shop where I would 
be able to make an M-mount. Has anyone done this? Are there diagrams 
somewhere (outside of Solms!) for M-mount fabrication? Have such mounted 
pinholes already been constructed? Does anyone else think that this is an 
interesting idea?
