    Re: Wanderlust 4X5 Travelwide

    Here's the first two sheets I scanned, freshly developed this evening and shot Monday afternoon with my new Travelwide. I was on vacation in Mississippi and my GF and I decided to stop and tour the USS Alabama in Mobile for old times' sake.

    The first shot here is the screw of the ship, and it shows the strength of the TW I think. This was shot @ f/32 at 1/25, on HP5+ and developed in Acufine - easy enough to handhold on this camera:



    Sadly I discovered that sometime in the last month, since using my 90mm Angulon last, the lens has developed massive separation in the front element. Not sure what causes this spontaneously. It had no problems whatsoever last month when I shot several sheets with it. So, as I found out, this causes some issues with regard to flare and patterning in the image when shot stupidly like this:



    By the way,for those curious, here is a 100% crop (3000 DPI scan) of the first image. No, it's not as sharp as a tripod-mounted modern optic. Who cares?

    This is my very first shot, please have a look at description on flickr for full details but it is rather a failure, still my first ever LF shot:

    Absolutely gorgeous, Wojtek. This is what I was hoping for when I first sketched this camera. I'm speechless!

    Ben, you made my day, thank you so much! Thank you again for making the camera, it is awesome and I already love it.

    Thank you Colorado CJ and D-tach as well! Much appreciated, some encouragement is important at the beginning of my adventure with LF. I will probably waste a lot of sheets before I will master the process and kind words like yours will help me get through the failures and keep on trying.
