why cannot a pin hole camera take picture in the dark?how can we obtain an erect image in a pinhole camera?

Pinhole camera uses the principle of rectilinear  propagation of light . A pinhole camera consist of a small hole through  which the light passes and fall on a piece of film in side the camera . When an object is  placed in front of pinhole camera , from each point of the object , ray of light pass through and fall on the film of the pinhole camera . When there is dark no light will pass through the hole and hence no light will fall on the film of the pinhole  camera. Therefore no image is formed .
A pinhole camera always form a inverted image it does not form erect image .
