    8x10 in Nantes

    Another new camera..8x10", 70mm FL, 5 pinholes for various perpectives.
    I took it for a walk around Nantes with some x-ray film loaded up.

    Here's the camera..

    Outstanding camera, outstanding results, James! I love the rise and fall in both landscape and portrait orientations. And your camera animation is lovely . . . .

    Great work! Both the camera and the results.
    The world is not black and white. It often looks good in grayscale, though.

    Lovely results from the big 'un !

    The clouds in number three are quite strange. Bubbly almost.

    Your compositions etc are as usual, faultless.

    Great photos and great camera. I really like the first two. Hard to decide which one is best.

    Thanks folks. There were some development issues in the sky on two of them (at least that's what I think it is), I think they like a little swish of agitation just after you turn the sheet (I', turning every 30 secs and developing for 6 mins). I'm using r09 @ 1:100 conc. Those two sheets were the first I did and after I gave a little more agitiation and it dissappeared.

    The offset pinholes are useful, e.g for this shot I had the camera sitting on the castle wall, looking out level so I used the lower PH to shift the horizon higher (the only shot in the series shot with the centre PH is #3).

    A crop for detail..
