Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Well, the sun is almost set here at ƒ/D headquarters (for the curious: near Cleveland, OH). It was a beautifully sunny day and one filled with possibilities. Of course, there was also some tribulations: my beloved pinhole-converted Polaroid 335 Land Camera camera sucked in 3 frames at once through the rollers. She’s always been a cantankerous old gal, but I think she’s telling me it’s time to hang up her rollers. I’m gonna miss her.

I did still get some shots today though. A few Polaroids and some other items that I’ll need to process later. Below are the Polaroids – they’ve not been cleaned up at all, so apologies for dust and such. Stay tuned after the jump – a legit reciprocity failure table for Fuji’s FP-100C film (it is cantankerous as well).

Fuji FP-100C – Reciprocity Failure Table

Ever wonder why your FP-100C pinholes come out so dark? The reciprocity failure rate on it is EXTREME! I found this at apug.org and have verified it’s accuracy. Copy/paste this for future reference:

Metered Seconds :: Corrected Seconds
1 :: 3
1.25 :: 4.06
1.5 :: 5.25
2 :: 8
2.5 :: 11.25
3 :: 15
4 :: 24
5 :: 35
6 :: 48
8 :: 80
10 :: 120
12 :: 168
15 :: 255
18.75 :: 389.06
22.5 :: 551.25
30 :: 960

 

Happy Shooting!!
