    I love this group. Can't decide which is better, the commentary or the photos. I got two rolls of Tri-X on my 612 yesterday, and hoped to have them developed today, but alas, no D-76. But they'll be developed by the weekend.

    By the way, Mr. Fish, what is the name of your Zero Image?

    Cheers,

    Mark,
    it is the Zero Image multiformat 6x9 (set up at the moment as 6x6 and running RVP100f). A much loved camera obscura and an ideal bushwalking companion! A production problem is holding up my acquisition of a ZI 4x5 deluxe outfit, probably later this month or in June.

    Armed with a short list of destinations, I sallied forth with my 4x5 "Pinhole Box" and two other cameras on what was undoubtedly the nicest weather I've ever seen on WPPD. But alas, I think I'm going to retitle it "Worldwide Comedy of Photographic Errors Day," but that's a shortcoming of my own; maybe I tried to do too many things. First up, I designed a folding wire-frame viewfinder to add to last year's camera, did all the calculations, etc. Ran way too short on time to hack it out of some 0.020 black anodized aluminum sheet, so I threw a fixed blob together out of glued up black mat board and attached it with two-sided tape. Turned out to be a good idea. The angle of view on this camera is so-o-o-o wide, a wire-frame finder - at least my design - is about useless. Maybe a tube or ring and post rifle style sight for the center would be more useful.

    Among other "happenings," I loaded four film holders with Arista RC grade 2 paper, pre-flashed them a bit more than last year, based on a new test. I added those to a holder still loaded from last year. So of the three shots I took on paper, two were on a holder in which I somehow loaded the emulsion against the septum, since verified the only two with a screwed up load.

    A negative:


    But scanned and inverted, there's a bit more than I thought at first - considering it's probably 3 or 4 stops underexposed and the detail is diffused through the paper! - but definitely a downer.


    On film it was more like:


    That is a former power plant for Pennhurst State School & Hospital outside Spring City, PA. It was one of several such places closed in the 1980s after a decade of controversy, lawsuits, and exposure of things that "should never happen." The shots are taken from the Schuylkill River Trail, a former Pennsylvania RR right-of-way that used to bring coal to the plant.

    With printed sticky labels bearing similar markings (both my film and paper were Arista), I managed to shoot two "paper" exposures - 25 or 30 seconds - on film that should have been about 5 or 6. The reciprocity gods worked in my favor (I mean, at worst it's less than 3 stops over), I pulled development of those two sheets a little bit and they are fine.

    Several of my destinations proved to be posted no trespassing, or buried in jungle to the extent they were adjudged not worth the effort. But I got a few shots, sent in this one:


    That's a crane made by Phoenix Iron Company in Phoenixville, PA, still standing in the remains of some sort of railroad facility in Boyertown, PA. I also went through a roll of Acros in the Bronica for what I hope will be a near-abstract study series of this rusty metal. The negatives look good -- we shall see. Have a couple of shots to finish another roll in the Bronica started at that power plant.

    (Maybe I should go for 8x10 in 2013.)

    Hello again Mr. Fish, I didn't mean that name, I meant the nickname. Your Canon is Brutus and your Pentax is Pentaximus. And your Zero Image? Zippy? Sparky?? I'm sure you have a better one.

    I also have the 612, and haven't even considered the 4x5 deluxe. Yet.

    Cheers,

    -- Mark

    The mouse has just clambered out of the cot on a cold, wet May day. Yesterday it was the beach!!

    'Zero' is the go-to name. Never thought of anything else for it.

    I did have an Olympus XA a few years ago, which I fondly referred to as "Olly". Long gone, I'm now in the market for procuring another XA. "Olly II" if you will.

    ...you know, I hadn't realised that! Explains why my exposure was off! This is my first semi-serious play with paper negs, so that's lesson one learnt!

    Results from my first attempt with the Ilford Titan. Shot Saturday beating the all day rain showers we had Sunday. Ilford HP5 metered with my old Gossen Luna Pro and the Ilford exposure calculator and developed in ID 11 1:1.
