Understanding Solarcan

Ever wondered "what is a Solarcan?"

Solarcan is the world's simplest camera, a ready to use pinhole camera that captures long exposure photographs effortlessly. It's as much a learning experience as it is a camera. It does not need any chemicals to develop the image, and it can be used as a camera science experiment, a camera art experiment, or simply to capture a little slice of sunshine for your enjoyment while the world turns. It's great fun to use, suitable for all ages and the results are always unique!
