    Wide F***ing Open!

    How about a thread of lenses shot wide open? I'll go first. This is a brass magic lantern lens shot on cross processed 8x10 Polaroid Film.

    What is cross processed 8x10 polaroid film?? Do you take the film out and process it in a tray? Not using the processing pod?

    That looks like Polaroid "chocolate"--color neg with the B&W positive sheet and pod.

    A few wide-open from a wide-open junkie. I honestly judge most optics primarily from how they look wide open. I'm the guy who pays three times as much for the 50mm f/1.2 over the f/1.4....

    This is shot with a B&L projection lens on 5x7 film. I like this shot because it captures this set of twins just as I know them to be.
