    Here's the 2 I got done before the 545 broke :D

    Deardorff 5X7 with 4X5 back and Polaroid 52. .0088" pinhole. 2 1/2" from film. f286 or so.

    The tune was Jack Guthrie singing "Oklahoma Hills where I belong"
    I don't use the Brunswick near enough.

    Nige, there's some amazing captures up there and how did the photog get that effect on number 32? Sadly yours comes up "This submission has not yet been reviewed: 48" so I'll have to look again later. What have you been shooting me wonders LOL :D

    not sure what's going on... it's shows mine to me!

    No32 is just a very ugly toe (according to my wife!). Pinholes have 'unlimited' DOF (the whole picture is equally fuzzy depending on your pinhole size and roundness) so they've plonked the camera down and stood real still! A large print on the wall would be a talking piece!

    Nige I've got it now! Maybe it was my firewall or dyslexia that got me LOL Beautiful image so no need for all that other gear you've got.

    It was a beautiful Sunny 16 kind of day here in S. Florida. I was out for most of the afternoon, made about 30 exposures & now have to find the time to develope them to see how I did.

    I was out -- the wind didn't bother me much, and the gray sky just made my exposures longer. I exposed two sheets of Fomapan 100 (9x12 cm), bracketing the same subject, but don't have them developed yet (they're in the tubes, should get them done today). The better one will be uploaded -- likely in the 600s or higher, since there were 580 images up when I looked at the WPPD gallery this morning.

    You can see some information on my construction of a shuttered pinhole for my 1927 Zeiss-Ikon 250/7 Ideal plate camera here.

    This is the second year my attempts at a large number of hormone ridden preteens running around with pin hole cameras was thwarted. Darn school administrative paperwork and ass dragging. Oh well. If not for World Pin Hole day then in the next couple of weeks.

    I have one. #374. I had to look to find the #. Everything that wasn't concrete was blowing that day too. I thought I would get some neat water effects, but looked so-so only.

    -regards,

    Mine's up, #871. Looks like I have marginal velvet in my plate holders, though -- this one has a light leak that (based on the shadows of dust grains cast along the surface of the film) has to have come through the dark slide slot, and the other film of the same scene has much worse light leaks with the same character. I guess it's time to find out how to take apart a plate holder for my Ideal and replace the velvets...
