Speed Graphic shutter on 8X10
March 23, 2017 – 06:24 pm
Being frugal and scrounging for solutions often results in combinations of things on hand. This chimerical camera is a good example: I have several barrel lenses with no shutters, such as the Aero Ektar shown here, a Symmar 240 convertible, and others with focal lengths and image circles big enough to consider for the first 8x10 experiments with Reagent III.

What you see here is a Speed Graphic body, without bellows, grafted onto an old and very heavy Calumet view camera that was provided at a very modest cost for the benefit of our cause. The focal plane shutter of the Speed is quick to use, has a lot of available speeds, and is larger than the average Packard shutter. Here is more on the Speed Graphic shutter.

Except it is no longer a "focal plane" shutter, way up front like that. The better terms might be "behind-the-lens", or "in camera". A shutter can be placed anywhere in the light path, even in front of a lens, and some old ones are.

The use of an in-camera shutter allows us to use all kinds of lenses - even simple lenses, pinholes, eyeglass lenses, plastic lenses etc. which are in the spirit of experimentation in analog photography these days, a trend especially noticeable in the Lomography movement.

The Aero Ektar is too short to use on this camera, but was just the first lens that came to hand after grafting the modified back and lensboard adapter onto the Calumet.

Seen supporting all of this is the very luxurious and mechanical Saltzman tripod, one of the heaviest and most robust tripods made. One would think this is a very solid setup, but unfortunately, it is not at all. The top plate of the Saltzman flexes very easily even with just a little camera on it. This particular Calumet Montclair, for all its weight, is a wiggly device on its own. Together they vibrate and oscillate in an almost surreal and agitated manner, taking several seconds for the most obvious motions to stop. It is going to be a challenge to use this out-of-doors, if there is any wind.

Popular Q&A
Does the Speed Magny100 take batterys or is it different from other series 100 film pack adapters? | Yahoo Answers

Those backs used film that was manually pulled from the film back, thus needed no power for its use, however they only were made for the Nikon F and it’s quite uncommon to find them for the F2 or F3 cameras, the Speed Magny 100-2 and 100-3..
It really only worked well with the 3000 film since there is such a loss in light of about 5 stops as the device takes the light and image coming through the lens and basically bounces it around a series of lenses and mirrors inside the unit and then magnifies and projects it on the Polaroid film
The only film available for the Speed Magny100 is n…

Who penned the graphic novel for dead man's shoes before the film adaptation

Comic book artist Anjan Sarkar has created a 90-page graphic novel based on the film by Shane Meadows. The graphic novel will be available in November.

Is the graphic novel "serenity" an adaptation of the film or a new story?

Joss Whedon penned a graphic novel prequel to the film 'Serenity' for Dark Horse Comics. 'Serenity' graphic novel is not a follow-up to '05 film.
