A Very Exciting Development

As Seen on Channel 4?s Buy It Now!

Competing with the Dragons, Channel 4's brand new show Buy It Now are putting innovative new products in front of a panel of retailers & pitching their ideas to a live audience! Check out our Buy It Now products.

Harness the power of the sun and the genius of an extreme time exposure camera packed into a simple tin can to create your own stunning images. Featured on the C4 television show, Buy It Now, the Solarcan is a unique product designed to capture the path of the sun across the sky in the course of a day, with almost zero effort on your part.

You'll get what looks very much like a standard can of soda, and setting it up couldn't be simpler. All you have to do is find a sunny spot outside or even a sun facing window inside and make sure your can is secure using the included cable ties (you don't want it to move at all or it'll spoil the effect). Then you just remove the black tab and wait! Removing the black tab allows light to pass through the pinhole and start creating images on the photographic paper inside. This is an incredible art called solargraphy.

The minimum time that you have to leave it for is a week but to be honest the longer you leave it the better your images will be, so this makes a great gift for someone who's got the maturity and patience to enjoy a slightly longer term project. When your chosen time period is up (or your patience - whichever runs out soonest!) all you have to do is cut open the tin with a standard tin opener and take out the piece of photographic paper inside. Take a digital picture of the image (your phone camera is fine) and invert the colours to reveal your amazing image of the sun's path across the sky.

Really nice packaging and clear instructions. It’s a gift for my father in law who is an avid photographer. A perfect present for anyone who likes photography.

Delivered in a nice presentation tube with good instructions. We still need to decide where to mount it but it made a good interesting gift.
