DIY Panoramic 35mm on Thanksgiving.

I've added lots to another thread about my 6x12 camera. Well, with a little help from this, I was able to adapt my 6x12 horseman back to accept 35mm film.

What this means is that using the Mamiya 50mm Biogon lens and 6x12 back I get 112mm of film exposed (horizontally of course, vertically it's the normal 24mm). That's a horizontal view of something around 120 degrees. So take the normal 35mm frame shot on a 50mm lens and multiply that by 3.2 and you've got one of these shots.

To create something new, buy a bunch of film and go on a trip with it is a terrible idea. There are all sorts of issues that could crop up that you couldn't predict. I tested the crud out of my 6x12 camera and got it working great but not with the 35mm adapter. But I packed it in my bag and flew to North Carolina to spend with my in-laws and shot 6 rolls with it anyway.

here's my Nikon F3 packed up with my custom panorama.


Because I've tested previous models against light leaks, there shouldn't be an issue there. But keeping the film flat is an issue. The 6x12 holder is obviously designed for 120 so it won't have any film guides pressing against the pressure plate to keep it flat. So I created my own:



Tomorrow I'll get my rolls back and will post some of the pictures.

Wish me luck!

Looking forward to seeing the results!

I can't tell from looking at your pictures... What did you use to create the 'body' between the lens and the film holder?

I'm looking forward to them as well! I'll be posting them tomorrow.

The original thread which shows the body and discusses it in more detail is here.

Well... Some good news and some bad news.

The bad news is that there were light leaks... Serves me right for shooting on vacation with an untested prototype..

The good news is that I still got some good ones.







The light leaks came in an odd form... which informed me as to what they were. "Unprotected" (unprotected from light leaks) plastic around the base of the camera.




I gotta say though... I love this camera.

JChrome,
These all are fantastic images, but the first one is magic to me. Very cinematic.

Thanks. The lighting on her worked really well. I also managed to get some color shots.





This one you can see the light leaks the most although it's apparent in the previous one as well.
