That is really neat.

The way the hand and bulb look so normal and everything else is, well, Abby Normal!

Great, really great!

but abby normal IS scanner normal, marv- that is half the fun with these young frankensteins! this one does have a bit of the mad scientist quality to it- such a cool photo!- so you will be forgiven for the mel brooks obsession once you have posted a self-portrait in tails performing "puttin' on the ritz"...

so, timeruinsbelief, are you getting an image circle to cover the whole scanner bed. or cropping? i prefer your edge artifacts to mine...

well, the 5x7 view camera doesn't cover th whole scan surface and the light leaks flanking the picture are from not enough duct tape on the exposed parts of the scanner. i took off the view cameras lens... it was way too dark for interior shots, and replaced it with a glasses lens (+6). the apperature is about 1.5" wide thus the huge focus difference between objects a foot away from eachother, and the lens is ultra curved, which i love because the edges seem to get pretty distorted.

aha! that explains so much. and if you need a ND filter for outside, you can just flip down the sunglasses!

do you have any pictures of this thing you can show us?
