I"ve been playing around with my 6x17 Medium Format View camera.

Before the virus thing hit, I went to City Park and just took at test shot....no dark cloth, so focus and even composition was a bit of guesswork, but I was impressed with what I got still.

This negative was scanned in 300dpi and I looked it came out it said to 1ft x 3ft....of course I shrank this WAAAY down for the web and sending on phone and emails to friends, but just thought I'd post it since such an unusual format.

Can't wait for this to get past this virus so I can really go out in search of something EPIC to shoot one shot panoramic pictures with!!

First attempts I did shooting medium format film with Hasselblad 501CM...I think this was 80mm lens...maybe Ilford HP5. 400 ISO film.

First time trying to shoot through an old waist level viewfinder, learning the moving left and right are the opposite from what you see in viewfinder....and then trying to get it level.

I had to crop this a bit to get it level....just test shots, nothing spectacular. I was near the levee on Lake Pontchartrain in the New Orleans area this is at the levee gates that are open to go to the boat launch and parts there....was trying for some symmetry and leading lines....

Ughhh... still SIP here in San Francisco. I did purchase 1000ft roll of Kodak 5222 Double X just before lock down. This is the same stock used in the new'ish Casino Royal (Daniel Craig) and The Lighthouse. Got to go out with my M4 and my sons for a walk in the park to test shoot. "Scanned" with a 5DSR. Can't wait to get out and shoot again once were a little more relaxed on the quarantine. Until then...
