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.

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.
Why 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. When the shutter is opened, light shines through to imprint an image on photographic paper or film placed at the back of the camera.
How is a pinhole camera similar to the human eye?
In a pinhole camera, light passes through the pinhole to project an upside-down image onto the back of the box, and in the human eye, light passes through the lens to project an upside-down image on the back of the retina. The brain then flips that image so that we experience it with the right side up.
