My first ever pinhole photo.


Innova 6x9 Pinhole, Kodak Ektar 100
You should add a short of your Innova to the camera porn thread.

It has been so tempting to get an Innova Pinhole. They are so quaint and nice looking. On the other hand...I could easily add a precision-drilled pinhole to my view camera setup. Yes, the field camera that I seldom use. Oh, well...talked myself out of that one

I'll try and get a photo of it soon.
I would never have ended up with one but it was given to me by Zeb Andrews and Don Pyle.
It would be cool to see some pinhole shots done with the view camera.

Here are a couple more from the Innova, both on Ektar.

Pretty impressive assuming no lens. How big is the "pin hole"?

Here's a famous early photograph, made with a pinhole, from 1890. Colton's reminded me of this one...



The crisis I'm having is this: color film in 120/620 is such a pain to get developed, and I've had problems with the film backs for the Graflexes. I know, I know, I should use cameras that are more reliable... but that's not as much fun. The store that developed this Medalist roll doesn't' seem to have a 6x9 mask, so I got them back as 6x7. Maybe this means I have to re-scan them myself.

Anyway, the story of this roll: I'd been sitting on another roll for over a month, waiting for more color film to batch at the store... so I figured I'll take a roll with the Medalist. Earlier I'd seen several fishermen wading in the river, but by the time I got back there with the camera they were all gone.

The large negative does for color what it does for b&w, gives a lot of subtle variation in tone. Here's another from under the bridge, Portra 400

I have been having fun with my Gilde 6x23



I just finished spotting the scans, though the film i'm using - Fuji Neopan 100 seems to be blocking up in the shadows a bit, I should develop the film with scanning in mind.

Makes you wonder why we need lenses!

Now I have to add pinholes to my bucket list!

Nice pinhole, Colton.

I'm currently in a moment of film despair, brought on by the D600. I'm sure I'll get over it once I've shot enough with the D600... but at the moment, I'm feeling color film is not worth it, and B&W is... B&W

Very dramatic light play here!

Good rendition. Do you not have a scanner for 9x6? I know it makes no sense to muck around with old film cameras if one is simply after a photo with little cost and effort. You obviously appreciate the machinery as well, and it gives a reward you likely don't get from the likes of a DSLR. I have just bought my fourth SV, and have now accumulated over 50 film cameras. When will it end - the CBA?

Yes, my Epson 4490 will do that, and will likely try out a frame or two. The colors and rendition will be different, I know that from prior experience.

The SV is butter, I can see why you'd accumulate 4 of them!
