Skink Wide Pinhole Pancake Lens for Leica I-III/LSM/LTM/M39 - 84° view - PRO Kit
Item description Product Photo


Nowadays everything is digital and film is being gradually replaced by digital sensors, while the basic principles of photography, since the invention of the camera obscura, remain the same.

This pancake lens arrangement compliments your rangefinder camera in a very stylish way and offers new creative opportunities for the Leica lover. Any pinhole shim, zone plate or zone sieve of up to 20mm diameter (0.78") can be inserted between the rings of the pancake lens.

Swapping the upper ring with the lower ring, the resulting focal length is either an ultra-wide-angle 24mm or wide-angle 30mm. As ultra-wide-angle it delivers a similar 84° wide angle of view as Elmarit 24 lens. Although the pancake lens fits deep into the camera-body, it's face is totally flat, with 3mm not as high as the controls on the camera itself.  When fitted with a 218 µm micron sized pinhole you may obtain beautiful photographs with a timeless soft character. Soft vignetting of corners just begins to become noticeable and adds to the retro-effect.  Alternatively you can easily insert a zone-plate (max. 20mm diameter) into the pancake.  No simple body cap offers similar style and value ! Please see sample photographs below.

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.


ALL NEW DESIGN - Classic Skink Pinhole Pancake (316L solid stainless steel)


Technical Data

The Skink Pinhole Pancake is hand made with high quality 316L jewelry grade stainless steel, with M39 screw mount.

  • with universal closure (center screw ring) for swapping pinholes, zone plates and zone sieves
  • Maximum diameter of aperture disks: 20mm
  • Focal length: 24mm (distance pinhole to film/ sensor)
  • Angle of view: 84°

The Pinhole is made of 0.03mm thin premium stainless steel substrate, for easy handling sandwiched between two copper plates with 20mm diameter. The laser drilled pinhole is perfectly round for producing optimal results.

  • Pinhole size: 0.218mm (nominal 218µm after Lord  Rayleigh formula)
  • Aperture: f/110

The Zone Plate "medium glow" produce moderate glow-effect.  It was individually exposed on high-contrast film. For protection it is sandwiched between two copper plates with 20mm diameter.  *This zone plate is fast enough allowing taking with hand-held shooting without using a tripod.
  • Central zone: 0.2mm / 218 µm
  • designed for focal length: 24mm
  • Zones: 11 zones
  • Aperture: f/46
  • Angle of view (full frame): 84°

The Zone Sieve "impressionist" produce  a soft dream halo effect, with a painterly, impressionists' character. It was individually exposed on high-contrast film. For protection it is sandwiched between two copper plates with 20mm diameter. *This zone plate is fast enough allowing taking with hand-held shooting without using a tripod. 

  • Central zone: 0.2mm / 218 µm
  • designed for focal length: 24mm
  • Zones: 5 zones (3 with 2 clear dotted zones around central zone)
  • Aperture: f/71
  • Angle of view (full frame): 84°

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.

Additional info:

  • Exposure during sunlight ISO 200: 1 Second for pinhole, 1/30 sec for zone-plate
  • Image composition: Image outline visible in viewfinder in bright light
  • Installation: Mount directly into camera's bayonet mount

Note: *Pinhole, zone plate and zone sieve apertures are included in this PRO Kit. 

Please visit my store with various pinhole and zone plate apertures.
