    Ilex #1 Universal

    As long as your FOV isn't so wide you photograph the inside threads in front, or get vignetting from the lens mount in back, it'll work fine. I've got a #0(ish) shutter mounted on my only dedicated...

    Mi Casa, Su Casa

    Digital rotation other than 90 degree increments will always make the image less sharp -- some pixels have to be interpolated, which tends to soften edges. Solution: rotate in the largest possible...

    I'll take your word on whether that'll work -- I can't see the magic smoke in that drawing, so I'm lost. ;)

    Polarioid packfilm best practices?

    The factory original darkslide for Polaroid pack films is a strip of heavy black paper that wraps around the far end of the pack (i.e. follows the same path the negative does when you pull the tabs)....

    Pinhole Light Meter

    John, I don't think I've seen a pinhole camera slower than f/512 (that'd be a projection distance of something like ten inches, or close to "normal" field of view for 8x10); they're surely rare...

    Polaroid square shooter

    This is pretty close to what I did for my AutoPin 210 -- I broke the front element of the plastic lens out of the mount, pulled the retaining ring out to remove the back element, then opened up the...

    ferris wheel

    Looks like you need to convince the lab monkeys (or your scanner) to let the blacks go black -- by default, I think a Frontier is set up for auto-exposure averaged over the frame, and tries to print...

    to get things started

    No problem with lens images on this DIY side; the important thing is the self-made albumen medium, over here. And that one *is* nice. I've been thinking I need to get some gelatin and try using...

    Polaroid square shooter

    Better watch yourself -- those took remarkably good pictures for having a two-element plastic lens (that one may even have been fixed focus, I don't recall offhand), and the plastic body meant they...

    Pinhole Light Meter

    Compensating reciprocity wouldn't be that hard -- the chip is calculating the total exposure a hundred or so times per second anyway, right? Heck, 3-4 times a second would be plenty fast! So, if...

    This looks interesting -- auto-exposure for pinholes has taken the next step beyond hacking an old pack-film Polaroid (which is much closer to my technical comfort level)...

    Parodinal Result

    I bet you can use that film for sandpaper, too -- Lucky SHD 400 is grainy stuff even in HC-110 (about like pre-1970s Tri-X); in Parodinal it's got to be like 80-grit carborundum, though I really like...
