the calculationsf = focal length (distance from the film/sensor to the pinhole) d = diameter of the pinhole l = wavelength of light. (use 0.00055 mm for yellow/green light) formula for focal length/diameter:

d = 1.9 f x lformula for F number:

F number = f/d

my sweetshopbox pinhole camera specifications: f = 45 mm d = 0.3 mm f number = 150
