Been a while… Playing with my scanner again
Canon CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
I finally got around to pulling apart my broken Canon Demi S half frame camera to see if I could get it back up and running. I found a repair manual online for a slightly different model of camera and started dismantling. There was a major difference unfortunatley in how the front cover came off which would have saved a lot of time and trouble but you live and learn.
I got it all back together (with no extra bits left out) with the initial problem fixed but another problem arose which meant I needed to pull it al apart again… Lets just say its a work in progress 🙂
Luckily while I was doing this I was also bidding on another one online 🙂
Same flowers but after a week of sitting on my desk 🙂
More testing using myCanon CanoScan 9000F Scanner as an image making device…
In the interest of using this blog for the purposes of good instead of evil for a change…
A friend of mine is trying to get a project up and running through PledgeMe which is basically a New Zealand kickstart platform.

If you can help cool, if not go check it out anyway 🙂
Oh and here is a half frame pano from a lookout above Wellington 🙂
I love how seamless this shot is even though the two girls are in it twice… Look at it big 🙂
Half Frame pano of the housing estate destruction at Pomare in Lower Hutt.
Straight out of the camera and scanned as one negative… I really like the flow of this image… Half Frame is cool 🙂

A couple more shots of the Tripod with its legwarmers. I thought the Pom Poms were a nice touch 🙂
This time in colour from my half frame… Not sure what is up with the crazy yellow shift in the first one. It probably means the film was somewhat expired 🙂
Today Samantha turns 2. Here are some shots from this year as we have been out and about.
I sometimes wonder what my kids will think when they are older and all of the photos of them are shot on cameras from the 50s and 60s and are predominantly black and white, I hope they like them 🙂
A 4 shot pano from a couple of weeks ago when I went out with some friends to shoot stuff at night.
I like the simplicity of creating panos this way without all the high tech stitching programs…
