Just back from a couple of weeks holiday in the South Island… Developed 11 rolls of film yesterday with still more to do…
To be perfectly honest I have no idea where this was taken 🙂
Horizon 202 Camera, Ilford Delta 100 Film (Expired), CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
Another shot from the Horizon 202
Horizon 202 Camera, Ilford Delta 100 (expired), CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
Been playing with a Russian Horizon 202 lately… I really like how it distorts straight things making them look curved 🙂

The shipping beacon a Point Halswell in Wellington. Slightly over 360 degree view.
I love how seamless this shot is even though the two girls are in it twice… Look at it big 🙂
Some half frame panos from a trip to Titahi Bay a couple of months back.
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…
Canon Demi S Half Frame Camera, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner (Scanned as one image)
Still trying to get my head into altering images within the Canon Demi S half frame camera.
Here go a couple of attempts. I have to remember to take more notice of leading/following edges in order to line stuff up. Of course I could do this post production but that would be cheating and spoil all the fun.
All the half frame images I am taking are scanned as one piece so its pretty much how it looks on the negatives.
After receiving my new Canon Demi S from Trademe (NZ equivalent of Ebay) on Wednesday with the shutter locked I was pretty disappointed. However a quick Google search pointed out that it was a common problem with this camera if it hadn’t been used in a while and the fix was pretty easy.
So with a bit of trepidation I started taking the front lens assembly off in order to get to the shutter…
It does have a bit of fungus in the lens and the light seals will need to be replaced but for $30NZ its a pretty sweet half frame camera with a 30mm f1.7 lens which can be used fully manually unlike the Demi or the Demi colour, the selenium meter works and seems very accurate…Sweet!
So in went the first roll of film to see if it actually worked… After dropping Emily off at school me and Samantha were planning to go for a street shoot in town but got stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway after a crash for about an hour and Sam fell asleep so that pretty much ended the plan for street shooting… I did take some in the car and the last shot of the series you can see the wreck.
So when we finally got home and Sam woke up we went to the cemetery for a walk and to take some images. Again these were snapped off pretty quickly due to the short attention span of an almost 2-year-old 🙂
All in all I have to say I’m pretty stoked with the results as everything seems to be working very well 🙂 Look out for a whole heap more from this camera
Canon Demi S, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner
I had a half frame lunch walk around yesterday with a borrowed Canon Demi, Cheers Fergus. Something like 48 shots in under 10 Minutes!
Yes I put my hand over the lens a couple of shots and Yes I had to turn them all in Photoshop cause I took ion the wrong order but apart from that it is a pretty fun camera to shoot with.
Cheers to Nige for inspiring me with his Super Rad images!
Still playing around with the new scanner and finally getting to scan some stuff which I havent been able to scan properly before like these cemetery shots from a Noblex Swing Lens camera.
I have to say that I am a little bit disappointed with the scanner in the fact it’s not really resolving the grain as much as I would like… maybe it just needs some tweaking and more experimentation… other than that its a really kick ass piece of kit! Scanning black and white as 16 bit image rocks!
All these image were taken just after the sun went down using Delta 3200 ISO film which makes them look a bit ethereal with no shadows.
Alas the Nodal Ninja has gone back to its owner but here go another couple of pics.
Nikon D70s, 18-70mm Lens, ISO 200. Nodal Ninja and Tripod. 22 Images stitched in Photoshop
Wow! That title is a bit of a mouthful.
This week I have had the fun experience of borrowing a Nodal Ninja (or as Amanda calls it a “Noodle Ninja”)
For those of you who don’t know what this is… It’s basically a device that enables you to pivot around the absolute centre of your lens when you are taking images to stitch together.
unfortunately WordPress doesn’t display these too well since they are really wide, but you get the idea…
All the below images are made up of 22 images stitched together with Photoshop.
