Wanderlust Travelwide

with 9 comments

IMG_0714

Here’s a camera I’ll be spending a lot of time with, especially considering how long I waited to actually get it. I pre-ordered my Wanderlust Travelwide system in the spring of 2014 and finally received it this month. Yup, a two year wait! From what I understand there were a lot of manufacturing issues that prevented a timely delivery, but it’s all good. It was a kickstarter project, after all😉

The Travelwide is basically a large format point-and-shoot. It accepts 4×5 film holders and can be configured to take large format lenses like the 65mm Super-Angulon, pictured above, or the nice and compact 90mm Angulon (mine is currently being CLA’d). The entire system, with a lens, a couple film holders, and all included accessories, fits nicely in my smallest camera bag, which I typically use to carry mirrorless cameras and lenses. Very cool.

This is also my first real experience shooting large format. A workmate of mine gifted me some sheets of transparency film, and I found my dad’s old changing bag in a pile of photo gear he gave me, so it was just a matter of learning to load the film holders (not easy at first) and heading out to shoot some photos!

So far I’ve shot 4 sheets. Here’s the first one, taken with the 65mm Super-Angulon:

Scanning film this size at the lab is quite pricey, so I just back lit the developed slides with an iPad and photographed them with a high resolution camera. Seems to have done the trick for now:

Another with the 65mm:

The camera ships with a pinhole cap, cut to f/283. The longer exposures required to shoot pinhole mean you’re generally on a tripod. I took a couple shots using my gorilla pod:

The frames above and below were both shot with the pinhole attachment and exposed for between 3 and 4 seconds. Can’t be all that precise with the timing when the shutter system is your hand and a black piece of plastic😉

The pinhole shots are obviously not as sharp as the ones taken with the Super-Angulon, but you still gotta love the color you get with slide film. 4×5 slide film…MMM-mmm.

From a recently developed roll of Portra 160, which I left half-shot and locked away in my camera for a little too long.

Been loving these longer days. This the perfect time of year for evening hikes on Bernal Hill, Suki’s favorite place to romp around. We try our best to keep up with her:)

Fuji Classic Chrome

with 15 comments

The rain has been keeping us mostly indoors for the last few days, but between the much needed showers in California, I found some time to chase Suki around using Fuji’s new Classic Chrome setting on the X100T. Some of the results actually remind me of the last roll of Portra I ran through my M3:

A fascinating collection of art instillations by Ai Weiwei brought us to Alcatraz today. Had a blast photographing the incredible artwork, and the early morning light had me chasing shadows all over the island:
