Experiments with the Polaroid conversion
While I was about to develop some 4×5 sheets for the pinhole day anyway I thought I’d take the chance to do two experiments with the converted Polaroid Pathfinder 110B.
First I wanted to try the pinhole in the lenscap. The camera has a fold-down lenscap and in it is a small f90 hole. Which gives the camera a very deep depth of field at the expense of longer exposures. The image below needed 60 seconds, during which I rushed around the apartment gathering cameras to place on the table.
And I wanted to test the rangefinder, it seems it is spot on even on short distances. The slight softness is probably due to the doublesided X-ray film. Some people strip away the emulsion on one side after developing the film to get sharper images. I don’t bother, the pictures are sharp enough for me as it is.
