Demi Half Frame Print

Finally got round to printing a shot from my old Canon Demi S (deceased)

With the 6×6 enlarger mask I made I can only print 3 frames at a time so I might have to experiment with a slightly larger mask and hope the enlarger handles it. Hopefully I can get up to 5 frames printed…

A Bit Of Camera Repair

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 🙂

Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #5

Catch Up On Things You Meant To Do Last Year.

This was a series I did last year. Every time Samantha went to sleep in the car I took a photo of her with my Canon half frame camera. I always meant to put them together and this is a bit rough but there you have it… They were taken over a 6 month period.

I am starting to get Rollei withdrawl and walking round with my F5 just isn’t the same 😦

Half Frame Fair

I havent put up a half frame shot for a while so here is one from the Petone Fair a couple of months back… My half frame camera currently has a rattle like a screw loose inside somewhere so I will have to pull it apart (again) before it goes shooting 😦

Half Frame Urbex

A couple of half frame panos… The first one is the abandoned Central Institute of Technology and the second one is an abandoned company that used to  go by the name Universal Trading Company which reminded me of Universal Exports from James Bond 🙂

Motorway Half Frame Pano

I haven’t done one of these for a while…

This one was taken from Fort Buckley on the night before we did the painting with light.

Half Frame Architecture. Part 1

Some half frame shots from a couple of weekends ago. It definitely takes a while to get through 72 frames on a half frame camera, even when shooting a fair few multi panos like these.

Straight out of the camera and scanned as one negative… I really like the flow of this image… Half Frame is cool 🙂
