Expert Answer:

In plane mirror, the images are formed behind the mirror. The image formed by plane mirror is of same size and erect. And these images cannot be obtained on screen. While the images formed by pinhole camera are diminished (i.e., small than the size of the object) and are inverted. These types of images formed by pinhole camera are obtained on the screen. Thus, images formed by the plane mirror are virtual and images formed by the pin hole camera are real images.
