Skink Pinhole Pancake "Retro" Pro Kit for Leica M. Tremendously creative modular valuable versatile. The modular Skink Pinhole Pancake System is the ideal addition to your rangefinder camera and offers new creative opportunities to the Leica enthusiast. Pinhole disks, zone plates or zone sieves - also in combination with suitable filters can easily be swapped and installed between the retaining rings in the center of the Pancake lens.

Depending on the desired effect, you can use your camera as a pinhole-, zone plate- or zones sieve camera. To a high degree the installed aperture determines how your vision is creatively interpreted in rendering an image. The traditional pinhole creates relatively sharp images with exposure times ranging from one second to several minutes. With a zone plate or zone sieve however, photos can be taken without a tripod, if the lighting conditions permit higher speeds. In comparison, images turn out softer with a painterly, impressionists' character.

Highlight are emphasized and appear with a dreamy halo-effect, while darker areas seem to be pushed into the background. With a focal length of 24mm the resulting angle of view corresponds to that of a 24mm Elmarit lens. Unlike, when using glass lenses, light meets the film surface or camera sensor in a pure unmanipulated way when it travels through a pinhole. In architectural photography converging lines can be avoided and the pinhole renders wide angle images with a soft timeless character.

The resulting retro effect is emphasized by mild vignetting at the corners of the image. On the surface the pancake lens is only 7mm high so that the camera can easily fit into a pocket. The sample photos below were taken with various Leica type cameras, using pinhole, zone plate and zone sieve.

Additional images can be found in flickr. The Skink Pinhole Pancake "Retro" is made of high quality massive aluminium.

It offers a precisely machined bayonet mount to fit your camera. Unlike so-called "Body Caps" there are no plastic parts. Thanks to its modular design, various pinhole apertures, zone plates or zone sieves can easily be swapped with each other. The standard filter thread allows the use of filters, lens cap or lens hood. In the same way as the "classic" version, this pinhole pancake is available in three different configurations, as "Starter Kit", "Creative Kit" or "Pro Kit". The "Starter Kit" can be upgraded with additonal apertures at any time.

Pinhole Pancake Lens: Technical Data. Aperture disk size: 20mm (exchangeable). As the most important component of the image forming process, the material, design and quality of the pinhole aperture need to meet several critical requirements to ensure highest image quality. This pinhole aperture is made of 0.03mm thin, high tensile strength steel substrate , mounted in copper disks with 20mm diameter. The laser drilled pinhole is perfectly round and burr free.

The pinhole size is designed according to Lord Rayleigh's pinhole formula, matching the focal length (distance between the pinhole aperture and camera sensor). Professional quality - made of high tensile strength steel substrate. M (according to Lord Rayleigh formula). Precision cut, Made in Germany. Delivers highest quality diffraction patterns resulting in sharper images.

The Zone Plate "medium glow". With moderate glow-effect was individually exposed on high-contrast film. For protection it is laminated and sandwiched between two copper plates with 20mm diameter. Central zone: 0.2mm /.

Designed for focal length: 24mm. Zones: 11 zones with 6 clear zones.

Was individually exposed on high-contrast film. Zones: 5 with 2 clear dotted zones around central zone. Unlike the typical zone plate this zone sieve has only two concentric rings with transparent, relatively small dots or sieve zones which assist the central pinhole zone during the exposure process.

During overcast lighting conditions the resulting images can hardly be distinguished from normal pinhole photographs. However, with high-contrast subjects or during sunny conditions the additional two sieve zones get activated, creating a certain halo effect in the highlights and strongly reflecting areas like glass, metal or water. Darker areas seem to be pushed into the background. Landscape or flower images created with this Zone sieve are often reminiscent of impressionist paintings.

Skink Pinhole Pancake Pro Kit. Pinhole (laser cut 0.218mm). Zone Plate "medium glow" f/46. Zone Sieve "impressionist" f/71 (cameras in the pictures are not included).
