    The end of the line

    This is the first picture taken with the new (testing) GuinnessCam one slight problem is the vignetting that can be fixed by making the little box that holds the pinhole larger.
    On the positive side the image is nice and sharp and the distortion caused by the curve of the film looks great.

    The picture was take at the abandoned wool store building Albany.

    Technical guff :

    Film Ilford 5x4 FP4
    Processed in Diafine 4+4mins
    Exposure time 6 seconds at about f220

    For ease of film loading I used a vertical format. I'm now thinking horizontal format will look far better.

    So I guess another can of Guinness is called for. I did find the aluminium at tad on the soft side, wonder if you can still buy steel cans??

    If you live anywhere near Seattle, Portland, or San Francisco, look for Churchkey beer. It comes in a steel can that needs a church key to open, hence the name.
