SOLARCAN: Ready to use Solography/Pinhole Camera (no darkroom needed!)


Born from the love of photography and astronomy, Solarcan is a unique camera designed to produce extreme time lapse exposures that capture the Sun's path across the sky, over weeks, months or years.

Each Solarcan includes:

- Hard protective shell (exterior color might vary)
- Solarcan (ready to use pinhole solography camera with a built in precision pinhole)
- Booklet with a comprehensive manual and how to guide
- Cable ties (zip locks), to tie your solar can to any object at home or in the wild!

The Solarcan comes pre-loaded with a sheet of photographic paper. Simply place your Solarcan (consult the included manual for optimal results) and open the pinhole aperture to begin the exposure. After some days, weeks, months or years, crack open the can (using any household can opener) and retrieve the photographic paper from inside the can. Use your phone, a digital camera or a scanner to capture the image solarized onto the photographic paper and digitally invert the colors to obtain a positive image. Return the exposed sheet back into the can or protective hard shell for safe keeping.

Join a vibrant online community of Solarcan users and post your results.

This is an ideal science/photography experiment for those who want to share their love of science, astronomy and photography with others. No darkroom or chemistry needed.

An ideal gift for someone who wants to take the first steps in exploring analog photography.
