How does a pinhole camera work class 6?
A pinhole camera is a simple camera, without lens, in the shape of a box. One of the sides has a small hole and it produces an inverted image of the outside world at other side. Smaller the hole, sharper the image. Temporary Black and White images are formed on the screen if a tracing paper is used.
Can a pinhole camera forms an image which is bigger than the object?
Yes, pin hole camera can form image bigger than the object. Pin hole camera forms real, up side down and the size of the image depends on the distance between the pin hole and the screen on which image is formed. Pin hole camera works on the principle of rectilinear propagation of light.
On what principle does a pinhole camera work?
Pinhole cameras rely on the fact that light travels in straight lines – a principle called the rectilinear theory of light. This makes the image appear upside down in the camera.
How can I make a homemade camera?

Why is the pinhole camera black?
The interior of an effective pinhole camera is black to avoid any reflection of the entering light onto the photographic material or viewing screen. Pinhole cameras can be constructed with a sliding film holder or back so the distance between the film and the pinhole can be adjusted.
Why is the pinhole camera image upside down?
The light passing through a concave lens produces an inverted image. It consists of a box with a small size hole, which acts as the lens for the pinhole camera. The light enters in a straight line by the aperture from top of the box to bottom. The inverted image of the object is formed inside the box.
How do you make a pinhole camera with a shoebox for Class 6?

What is pinhole effect?
The “pinhole effect” is an optical concept suggesting that the smaller the pupil size, the less defocus from spherical aberrations is present. When light passes through a small pinhole or pupil, all unfocused rays are blocked, leaving only focused light to land on the retina to form a clear image.
