How does it work?
Inside the Solarcan is a 5x7" piece of high grade Ilford photographic paper. Once the black tab (pictured) is peeled away, revealing the pinhole lens, light can pass through. Over time this will gradually scorch the path the Sun is taking through the sky. Because the Solarcan is machine sealed no liquid will pass through to damage the paper inside.
Once you've run out of patience (hopefully after several months) you simply remove the photographic paper from inside and scan or snap with a camera and invert to see your final image!
What's really great is a complete set of instructions are included on the Solarcan body itself.
