So does that mean I can shoot my 8x10" camera and take a 6x17 cm sliver out of it to post here? :D

No. In my opinion that would not be "in the spirit" of the thread.

Has to be true 6x17 cm.

Rule carved in Jello to be molded any way the OP likes.

No, I am holding out for when I can post my XPan 24x68's. I don't see why they should not be allowed. After all, 24 is bigger than 6 and 68 is way bigger than 17 and the aspect ratios are exactly the same.:rolleyes:

Fantastic panos...where was the last image?

Last image is the Bayonne Bridge, Bayonne NJ... about a mile (as the crow flies) up the Kill Van Kull from the terminal where I work.

Quite a bit of talk about either: 1) tearing it down and digging a tunnel for Route 440 or 2) raising it.

Either way (in my humble opinion) will likely be a disaster.

All so the super size cargo ships (soon to be coming through the enlarged Panama Canal) will be able to get into Newark Bay.

I guess no-one else wants to help keep your thread going.

With all that arguing a few weeks ago I would have thought this thread would be at 100 posts by now.

Maybe it'll pick up after the holidays.

Here's another... a couple old geezers getting some R&R at my uncle's hunting cabin in the north Maine wilderness, ca. 1994. Fuji G617, Kodachrome-64, f8 @ 15-sec.

Not my best work but one of the few indoor shots I've ever done.

Jan: You may be right. I belong to a professional site on yahoo-groups and I tend to see a lot of arguing there too.

Yes it was quite a nice place to visit. Unfortunately both my uncle and the cabin are now gone. But over the course of my life I spent about a year's time there as a "base-camp" for hiking, fishing, and photography.

Doing justice to the scenery there was the reason for purchasing my MF 617 in the first place.

A few more shots from that era attached.

Hard for me to see it in black and white. I don't have any 6x17s of FL yet but some 6x9 of sunsets in E100G are spectaculars. I almost booked a couple of weeks for NocheBuena/Christmas in FL but I decided to cancel at the end. Glad I did with the snow in New England. My family in Miami complains of being "too cold" this winter. :p

I like the color gradation.

Gee... I've used a bit of Astia myself but don't usually get such rich colors.

I'll have to pull some out of the freezer and try again.

One of my own on Astia. If you ask me what mountain range it is I've forgotten. I'll have to look it up in my notes. Somewhere in Alaska not far from Palmer where I stayed with friends in Summer 2007

Ed:

Thanks. Yes it is a favorite spot and I've done photos there several times. But not in many years. I never had much luck with CS-120 but that one did come out nice.

There is a little parking area there at the overlook and I've stopped there several times for sunrise/sunset photos. But I never seemed to have the right camera.

Since then I bought more LF equipment including quite a number of long lenses and two Sinar 6x12-cm panorama backs. So I do plan to do the scene again sometime when I get back there. The spot is about 15- miles east of where my uncles wilderness cabin used to be so it was easily accessible over the years. Not so any more now that both he and the cabin are gone.

But like Arnold said, "I'll be back!"

Another done there at sunrise... also done with the Fuji G617 and cropped a bit at the bottom. I don't recall what film. My notes are at home.

Nice color transition from #1 to #2. I like #1 just a bit better with the hint of blue at the top. But it goes to show what those of us doing sunrise/sunsets have learned... to keep shooting as the rise or set progresses because each shot will be uniquely beautiful.

Bob, you're absolutely right. I don't normally shoot sunsets and the colors really can change dramatically from minute to minute. I also preferred the later shot which had the hint of blue/purple...

Well, that's a recent image made while a huge fire destroyed part of the "Cidade do Samba" (Samba City), here in Rio de Janeiro.
Sadly, those dramatic events usually render some beautiful images. But no one was hurt, just a lot of carnival fantasies and alegories, so my conscience wasn't hurt either.

Cesar Barreto
2-Mar-2011, 14:18
Hi, Ken.

We get only 4 pictures with 120 and most cameras won't work with 220 films, since frame counting depends on the small red window in the camera back. Maybe Linhofs and Gild can do the trick, but none of the chinese new arrivals.

The Fuji 617 gets 4 on 220- That's how I found out I need to replace the foam seal on the back- the paper on 120 blocked the leaks.

Sanjay Sen
5-Mar-2011, 09:16
The Fuji G617 gets 4 on 120 and 8 on 220. To change between 120 and 220, you just need to flip a switch (for the counter) and reverse the pressure plate. No problems with frame spacing or the film counter. I recently acquired a G617 and am enjoying shooting in this format, and still trying to figure out how to get these scanned (I don't own a working scanner).

I use an Epson 4990 scanner with a homemade film holder.

The plastic film-holders that came with the unit work reasonably well but only fit up to 6x12-cm.

This one scanned full frame with the homemade holder and cropped to 6x12 with the Epson holder.

Beautiful photograph, question, is that fog that is to the right of the waterfall actually just missed coming off of the splashes?

Very beautiful and agreed I love Panoramic's.

I'd never seen this thread before but I'm glad it rose back to the top; there're a lot of great images here! I used to work at a camera store and one of the perks was being able to borrow any of the used cameras we had for sale. Here are a few from a Fuji 617 I "tested" one day:

Feel free to add your 617 images here

I have not used my Shen Hao 617 for 1-2 years as I was learning to use my 4x5 well to do my photo project. Today I loaded up some Reala 100 and took the 617 and a few lens for some California coastal views. I miss using the camera. It's so much fun.

I also think I finally "understand" color negative film scanning now. The key is that there's a huge dynamic range compared to slides. Once I really grok that, I think I can make it work. I will probably continue to use Provia 4x5 for my cosplay photo project though. Don't want to introduce new variables now...

I normally avoid the "stick the main subject in center" panoramic images, but this one calls for it, IMHO:

I did something kind of silly yesterday - I setup my Shen-Hao 617 with a 72mm XL at hyperfocal (I thought...), and put a flash bracket on the camera and shot it handheld (with a 12mm viewfinder from my CV 12mm LTM lens to estimate framing) at the university Homecoming football game.

Sometime while walking to the game from my house I must've knocked the focus because it was way out from what I had set, even at f/22. So everything is pretty soft. But it was a cool idea anyway. I also underexposed a bit. I did an incident reading and it seemed under compared to Sunny 16 but I trusted it. Not sure why it was so far off.

I should probably stick to my 35mm panoramas in 6x12 back for handheld stuff. Anyway, here's a couple shots:

I haven't been shooting mine much lately due to time constraints. Hopefully soon though I will be able to do more. Composing 1:3 images in the swamps can be a challenge.

Here's one from last spring, in Cades Cove. I shot a ton of 6x17 but I don't think I put much up here because it took so long to get all the rolls developed and scanned. This is on Portra 160, with a 90mm:

The way I understand it is that photos from 8x10 source can go to the normal Image Sharing threads. This is for those bastardized not-really-LF-according-to-LFF 6x17 images.

But if it's up to me, I say, why not. The more the merrier :-)

I like both in a way, the contrast on the B&W is intense but interesting, the color, I like the green moss area but it makes the background appear dull.

So do you own two backs? Or did you kill both rolls to get to the next roll? Or happened to be on the last one? That's what, 4 exposures per roll?

I thought I shared these but I guess I didn't. I'm not sure if this is exclusive to 6x17 roll film backs or not, but I'm on my phone, so I can't tell if I'm in the LF section or the "everything else" section. Let me know if this is frowned upon since I don't own a 6x17 roll film back.

It was a nice walk down into the site, but it was a bit of a hike (at least for me) carrying my "stuff" back up the hill to the parking lot at the end of the day. Rangers were quite nice and there were no objections to my using a tripod.

Right, a low key place and no problem with using a tripod. With all of the 5x7 stuff to tote around, I've taken to splitting all the gear between two shoulder bags rather than one big backpack with everything in it. It just seems easier to carry the stuff longer distances that way, especially since the Canham MQC in it's own case is very toteable.

This is so nice Deval. I love the smoothness of the water and the slight motion in the trees. I noticed there is a slight reddish cast in the water that I don't know if it is due to reflection or conversion from negative scan. I don't think it takes anything away from the image but my personal choice would have been to remove it.

Nice one, Deval! What were you doing in Austria? Just vacationing?

Deval
16-Jul-2015, 14:47
Thanks for pointing that out. I had the image lab developed in Vienna. It was a tricky scan and I didn't notice that part. I'll muck around with it and see if it's worth removing. I find home developed tends to be easier to scan

I was out there for a conference. I had about 24 free hours so I rented a car and decided to get a bit lost

I think a little front tilt. It was raining pretty hard at the moment, and I was ridiculously jet lagged, so I was close to stopping down the lens even more if it weren't for reciprocity. The lens natural has some peripheral distortion, but still a lovely lens imo.

I wasn't going to mention the distortion because I didn't want my intentions to be misunderstood. I noticed some distortion on the far left and was just wondering if the lens was pushed to it's limits on that side.

I't a wonderful image and the little bit of distortion doesn't hurt it at all.

Three 6x17 images from today. I wandered around south GA but found my way back to a state park I've been to, but explored an area I hadn't really traversed much. It started pouring rain when I got there so I covered my Shen-Hao up with my darkcloth and just wandered around getting drenched for about 30 minutes, and then took these:

All with my Nikkor 90mm f/8 and a 3a center filter, which definitely makes things a bit more even, on Delta 100 dev'd in FX-39:

Thank you guys. I have to admit, that negative film was -don´t know how to say- a bit scary for me, because I never knew what colour it would give and I had problems with blocked up shadows, cyan skyes, magenta shadows and so on. With my new conversion method Iall these problems are blown away. I like slide film a bit more but for these difficult lighting situations the negative film gives spectacular results. I like it more and more. Here another shot on Ektar 100:

Thanks OnF, and Drew. I had to wait for over 30 minutes for the sun to peak out and give a glimmer of light. It was raining lightly so I put my lens cap on, and so the first time the sun came out I of course shot a wonderful image of my lens cap, and then the sun was gone for awhile again. It was coming out for only 1-2 seconds at a time, through holes in the cloud cover.

Lachlan - wicked cool shot with the impending weather!

Lachlan, I want that image on my wall in 24x60 inch size. Yours too, Corran.

I keep coming back to that image Lachlan. Love the composition, with the diagonal lines hitting the corners of the frame. Would love to see it larger.

Out of curiosity, are you enlarging your 6x17 work? I don't have a large enough enlarger, but I'm working on it. I have all the parts to build an 8x10 enlarger, just don't have time, and I'm moving next year and might have to give up on it for now as I can't bring the large 5x7 enlarger carcass I was planning on using. May even have to dump my 4x5 darkroom stuff temporarily.

O-n-F, I've got some 24"-wide (inkjet) paper left over from my last show...

I mostly photograph with 4x5 and 617, and there aren't many "magic lens". Oh sure you have 150 APO Sironar S or the Super Symmar XL, or the Gold Dagor, but in the end, one stands alone (*) :-) - the Cooke PS945, which recreates the look of the legendary Pinkham and Smith Visual Quality IV lens. Most of my 4x5 portraits are taken with the lens.

I checked that the image circle should cover 617, and indeed it does. There is hardly any light by the time I set up the camera, so this is about F5, but the bokeh is oh so smooth.

Shen Hao 617, Ektar 100 (why EKtar? Because I have a 617 frame left on the roll, normally I use Portra 160 for portraits...), Cooke PS945

(*) I am being hyperbole

Only 4x5 at the moment. My main B&W is 7x17", so I generally scan 6x17cm colour.

We write it quite often: however, this image in person and large is SO much nicer than on a computer screen... To me, there is even more atmosphere.

Thanks again for the comments!
