My beauties - the trinity :)
Posted By: bombel, 03-20-2011, 10:49 AM

The triplett - small, medium and large!

On the front is Mycro - for 17 mm film (its definitely not a toy, it really is a camera, simple one, but not a toy). Mycro has shutter times: B, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 sec. and lens 20mm with apertures: 4,5; 5,6; 8; 11. There is no focus ring because the depth of field is large enought to cover whole resonably scene. Small, but clever camera.

In the middle is Photavit mod. II, for 35 film, and on the back is Altica for 120 film (6 x 6 cm).

All of them for square frame. Note, that this picture is a square too.






Cheers, bombel

Awesome photo! When I saw your title I figured it was another photo of the FA limiteds. Thanks for the pleasant surprise.

Brenda Lee - if you wanna have Mycro camera, its not very hard to find it on ebay, but I have to warn you! Watch carefully, because there is a lot of cheap toys in the same shape, named Hit, Stars, Silver Moon, etc - which are very limited version of real Mycra, with fatal craftmanship and weak material used. Oh, and mayby this site will help: Mycro Camera Page

JohnBee - this just is not a big problem. Post me a Private Mssg with your email and I send you a big format jpg, if you still want to have it on the wall...

Wow, that's wonderful news!

I'll get it printed on canvas and hang it in my hallway.

I'm wondering, did you do a series with each one in focus individually? Also, what did you use to get such a perfect reflection?

I did some pictures of this 'trinity' in various configurations, but not such as you wish: the same as above with each one focused. Simply, I just thought that setup as the above is the best I can do: array of three cameras and focus on the first. I dont want to say, that this is clearly the best setup - absolutely not! I can easily imagine that someone else will do it much better than me.

And for you Brenda one of those other setups (only to illustrate the configurations I tried):

Well, this 'perfect reflection' you are talkin about is present because of the floor (or base) I used - made of very salty (and very calm) water from Dead Sea.

Just kidding!

Its a glass of course, but glass black painted on one side (bottom). I've tried to setup the cameras on the unpainted, ordinary piece, but this black one was better in my opinion. The main difference were the reflections, which in the unpainted case were 'double'. You can see this 'double reflection' here (I made thios photo on the ordinary, unpainted piece of glass): https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/137414-abstract-infinity.html. Note, that this 'infinity' paper ribbon has a double reflection...

I found, that for me the more complicated shapes (like cameras for example) are better looking with 'single reflection' - and therefore I use one sided black painted glass when I want to have reflection like this.

And at the end I'd like to say, that English isnt my home language - but I hope, that my explanation is at least somewhat understandable and will be a little helpful.

Cheers, bombel
