Pinhole uses a unique method to simulate the long exposure times
of a pinhole camera. It does not just simulate the distortion and
visual effects, it gradually exposes the scene over time like a
real pinhole camera allowing effects not achievable in other
"pinhole" apps or regular camera apps.
Unlike a real pinhole camera, all photos are automatically exposed
correctly no matter the exposure time. It can optionally simulate
the vignetting and edge light bleed typical of pinhole cameras.
Exposure time can be set to one of several presets from 15 seconds
up to 2 hours, or it can controlled manually for shorter or longer
exposures, up to a maximum of about 24 hours.
At any point, choose an "emphasis" image that will dominate the
final outputuse this to freeze a moving item in the shot
(this feature is experimental and the outcome varies widely based
on the scene).
Saves directly to your camera roll. Load images to Facebook,
Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, Camera+, etc. from there.
Note: the simulation is very memory-intensive, especially on long
exposures. For the best stability please close other apps and
disable networking to prevent incoming calls and push
notifications (put it in "Airplane Mode"). Use "1/4 size" mode
which cuts both the horizontal and vertical resolution in half to
reduce memory usage dramatically. For best results, plug in your
phone before beginning a long exposure.
