Got one of those nifty Titan pinhole cameras and was playing around with it.
http://www.ilfordphoto.com/Webfiles/...1258381441.pdf Don't know the pinhole diameter but it f206 and the camera is wide angle so the distance from film to pinhole is short. There are plans for a longer cones but they aren't available yet.
For this image I used Tri-X exposed @ 200asa and had the film lab processed in HC-110. I used the Reciprocity Timer app on my iPad to calculate the reciprocity compensation and to time the exposure. For metering I took a simple reflective reading with a Luna Pro SBC meter and used the f-stop chart generator on the Mr. Pinhole website to translate my meter reading to the f-stop of the pinhole. (my meter only goes f128) http://www.mrpinhole.com/flvsdiam.php
I printed the negative on Adox MCC-110 in Dektol.

Closing the camera with reversed lens in place. (A Rodenstock 150 works just as well.)
On Wing Island, Cape Cod, at the Sun Dial, Sept. 2012. Not sure what this gem is, I bought it on eBay ten years ago to balance out the stress and speed of photojournalism.

Arca-Swiss Discovery with 171 frames, synthetic wide angle bellows, and compendium while using a 125mm lens.
I really prefer the leather wide angle bellows to this synthetic. I was not using the grad filters so I had the compendium on.
