    First try with my new Chamonix 45n-2

    Hi,

    I am a professional still life photographer who have been shooting digitally for about 12 years now. A couple of weeks ago I rediscovered my old 4x5" lenses that I don't use digitally, so I decided to buy a Chamonix 045n-2 camera and start shooting some black and white landscapes.

    Here is my first try, shot outside Stockholm, Sweden last weekend. Nothing fancy. Just a test.

    Lens: Nikkor 90mm f9
    Scanner: Epson V850 Pro

    This one is dry scanned, but I am waiting for a fluid mount from betterscanning.com

    Thank you! You are too kind. Right now I am waiting for my Sekonic L-608 Spot meter to arrive. Hopefully I will receive it before Christmas. Then I will start some serious shooting!

    Excellent image, Philip.
    Looks like you have found a different genre to counteract the discipline required for still life.
    I hope you enjoy your landscapes from now on.

    I just saw this thread and recognized the original poster - Philip has since sold this camera to me and I'm doing my best to put it to good use

    It's a beauty.
