Finally friends….

…. with my little Zero 2000. It has been an long and winding trip, but now I’m beginning to learn to know it! Btw, is it her or him????  😀

And I really like my new friend! It started with me catching a tip from somewhere I do not remember, and I’m truly sorry for that! If you recognize your tip, please tell me and you will have the cred for it that you deserve!

I have been making a pressure plate to it, to keep the film plane flat and nice. I took a sheet of black cardboard paper, folded it on the middle, cut a little hole for the film counter window, and taped it to the inside of the back of the camera. And I think it worked out quite well! The images are not overly sharp, but good enough to make a nice pinhole mood.

I also wanted to try a new film for an upcoming pinhole swap. I have not tested this film before, at all, so I didn’t know how it will behave with a Wratten 89B filter and pinhole camera.

This film has not the distinct infrared look as the Efke IR 820 have, but I think the mood in the images are really good anyway.

And if you think that “Oh my, here we go again with those old oak trees”, yes, I’m sorry, they are the same as in my last post and even earlier posts, but I’m totally fascinated by them, and they do so good as pinhole infrareds, don’t you think? 😉

This film do not cope with backlight in the same way as both Rollei IR and Efke IR820, but it renders some beautiful black and white images anyway, and that is good!

I’m looking forward to put a roll of beautiful Efke IR 820 in my little Zero Image 2000, but all the foliage is on it’s way out here in Sweden. We have heavy rain and wind coming for the end of this week, and I’m afraid that’s also gonna be the end of the autumn colours…

  1. I am glad you have meet a “new” friend, hehehe!!
    How do I like the last shot, you place it there on porpouse, didn’t you?
    Anyway all of them look gorgeous, I think I should try SFX and Rollei too!

    • Thanks a lot Jesús!
      Yes, of course I did!! Just couldn’t resist, I love flares!
      Do that, all three of them are quite good I think. And I suppose we are lucky to still have two of them in production (when the freezer is empty…)

  2. These really are terrific Marie and the tip seems to have helped you a treat and as you say the Ilford film has a less of an infra red effect, giving the images a less harsh appeal with a good tonal range. Hope you have a great week! regards, james
