    Modern Rotation Cameras

    Anyone here using Roundshot, Hulcherama or Alpa Rotocameras?

    Are you enlarging the negs?

    Enlarging?

    I have a Hulcherama 10 that I use. The negative is 10" by however long I want to make it, up to 6'. Contact prints only.

    I use a Roundshot 220 VR and I have had some of my stuff enlarged by a commercial lab which has a Roundshot enlarger. The results are quite impressive. I shoot mostly Fuji NPS roll film 220 and occasionally a roll of NPH.

    that's a rare beast, I heard they only made 20 of them. How well does it shoot? I was told they were problematic and never replaced the #10 Cirkut like they were designed to do.

    My Hulcherama is #2. I don't know how many they made. I replaced the motor and circut board when I got it and it now shoots great. I also have a cirkut 10, which is not electric. The Hulcherama is smoother in its operation. Less change of banding on the neg. The film loading is more complicated then with the Cirkut.

    I can't really say one is better than the other, they are just different.

    Hi All,

    Can I add The Horsley Camera Coy's 'Ethel'? anyone used one or seen one in action? I like the idea of 360degrees on 120 film.

    Me too, I was hoping to get some information from someone who has used one before I decide if I should get one
