Trees and sprockets

Ever lusted after a Hasselblad X-Pan but haven’t got £2.5k plus? Well, here’s what you can do with a £50 version.

These are all shot on 35mm Kodacolor Gold 200 in a Voigtlander Bessa I, a 6×9 120 format camera. I’ve got a couple of 3D printed widgets to make the film cartridge fit. You have to count the turns as you wind the film on.

The film prob isn’t flat in the camera, and it’s zone-focus anyway, so narrow apertures work best. Even then, this is about atmosphere, not forensic detail.
