I'm a technician, not a photographer.

comment So my iPhone 6 camera lens is as wide as my full frame 35mm DSLR lens?
Just out of interest, do you know the focal length of the iPhone 6 and do you know it's "equivalent" focal length?

Did you use the same aspect ration on both camera settings?

You can use a reverse macro lens technique.

comment Why did my whole roll of film shot with my Olympus Infinity Zoom come out blank?
Was there a bit of film sticking out of the roll when you brought it in to get developed? The camera could be faulty, too.

And THAT is exactly what I meant by most likely be shades of black/grey/white. It's not that random. It was taken with my OM-D and a pinhole cap of the car park at my work. I also used a m4/3 to OM adaptor for a narrower field of view. I took this photo.

You can actually attempt pinhole photography but it's strongly suggested to purchase a lens. How is that misleading?

Again, people on their high horse thinking they know what's better for someone else. Doesn't really matter what model they buy, it's their choice. Sure, I agree with you that this camera model outweighs the asker's knowledge about photography (considering the question) but it's just a question. That's what stackexchange is for.

comment Does a “body-only” DSLR need a lens added before use?
the "image" will be the average of the colours coming in so, for example, a "photograph" of a blue sky with no lens would still be blue. Untrue. If it's exposed for 10 seconds, it will be white. That's why I stated "depending on the light source and shutter speed".

The claim in the first sentence is incorrect. Golly gosh! I've edited my answer. It's pretty simple. It will be more uniform than a photo with a lens on it.

Well, I'd suggest to use a 35mm lens in the answer to avoid confusion. Because it's not right. For any prime lens, you don't obtain the focal length by dividing by the crop factor. I read the question, but would have answered it differently.

So you need to obtain the actual focal length by dividing by the crop factor ...Sorry, I don't follow... The size of the aperture of that lens (50mm ƒ/2.8) on APS-C, Medium Format, 4/3's is... 17.857mm. Why are you suggesting to multiply (or divide) by the "crop factor"?
