    Great stuff Jim, I'm sure most don't realise how difficult these are to do.

    What's the technical reason behind the banding?

    I believe the banding is caused by non standard film. I had to cut 9.5" aerial recon film down to 8" and I think it was not playing off the spool correctly. So pressure would build up as the camera tugs on the spool, then it would give way, and pressure starts again. Also the camera is 85 or 90 years old and who knows when it was disassembled and cleaned lubed properly last. I plan to do that before the next shot. Maybe this weekend at "Shooting the West" in Winnemucca. jg

    You gotta love a camera where you say, "I'll do this before the next shot". Not the next roll, not the next session--the next shot.

    The whole "singular" nature is cool.

    "OK, I got my shot for the day. Time to go home and spend a few days developing and printing my negative"

    By the way Jim,

    I assume Tonopah is an Indian name? Given where you live, probably Paiute? Any ideas on what it means?

    Jim,

    I am just sick with envy at all of these great old cameras you locate and find a way to use.

    Great looking first effort. But how do you plan to scan the negative to correct the banding?

    Click on the thumbnail to go have a look at full size. Yes Virginia, that's a thumbnail. The neg is 8" X 74"! Yep, there's banding and smeared areas. Work to do, but this was good enough to get me pretty pumped up!

    The view is of Tonopah Nevada. 270 degree rotation. In the print, the areas where the camera ran perfectly are beautifully sharp. I used a 450mm Red Dot Artar at f90. 1/2 sec. exposure. No meter used, sunny 16.

    "Tonopah" Indian for "no wood / no water" Fits well. Could also mean "hope great white father not make this the reservation because nothing here so he probably will"

    No plans to try to correct this neg. Ya get what ya get with one of these beasts. I'll address the issues and hope for better next time.

    So Jim, How big is the enlarger you're going to use to make a 16X148?

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Tonopah certainly is the garden spot, isn't it? At least you don't have to worry about trees getting in the way....

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.
