This is my fourth sheet of 8×10 b&w film taken with my 8×10 large format pinhole camera. A tricky shot due to the very wide dynamic range of the scene.
The thing with Ilford FP4 and pinhole cameras, is that it requires very long exposures due its reciprocity failure characteristics. I only wish Fuji Acros 100 was produced in 8×10 size. At least, my calculations seem to work pretty good in getting a fairly accurate exposure (you really don’t want to blow up a 8×10 sheet of film, its pretty expensive).
I have loaded my first sheet of Fuji Provia 100F in my pinhole and I am visiting a wonderful location during the weekend to shoot this sheet. Even with the low image quality of a pinhole camera, I can’t wait to see how a 8×10 slide transparency looks on the lightbox !!
