More from Aztec Ruins coming soon..........
My RSSP 6X9 has just arrived, so I will add it to the competition. So what IS the competition? I have a number of pinhole cameras, some of which I have never used. My husband also has a few that he's not sure he wants to keep. So over the next few weeks I will be testing these pinholes, some as I've said seemed like a good idea at the time, but have never been used:
First the Ilford 4X5 Camera Obscura (top). For the most part I haven't used this because the direct positive print paper was unavailable for a long time (but I have some now). And I also realized that the only practical way to use this camera was to carry a changing bag and extra box to place the exposed images in. Otherwise it was a one shot deal. For the Showdown, I'll probably restrict my shooting to my immediate neighborhood.
Second camera above, the 3D Printed Panorama Pinhole. It may be a great camera, but I need to try it. And sitting in my cabinet all these years has not helped me to decide if it's a keeper.
The Ondu and Zero Image adjustable 6X7 cameras. Both cameras have exhibited a similar problem: film does not stay flat resulting in distorted images. Also my husband had experienced a lot of scratches with the Ondu.
The FinalCompetition Entry is my newest Reality So Subtle 6X9F:
Pinholes that have Made the Cut and are Keepers: Reality so Subtle 6X6F, Holga Panorama Pinhole, Diana Multi Pinhole. I'll show examples from the Keepers in my next post.
Non-Keepers may be given away...........
