E4x5


E4x5, originally uploaded by *jj*.

This is my whacky film experiment of the day. I recently bought a Vivitar 6x6 Enlarger to convert it to a 4x5 camera. I know it's a bit odd.

Any how, I also had acquired a PA-45 instant film holder with film in it. I had been dying to use it.

Solution. My son and I crawled into the bedroom closet with a Metz flash, the film holder and the bellows, rack and pinion and lens from the enlarger, and guess what it worked.

Who says you need a shutter to take a picture? I simply opened the dark slide (in the dark) put it to the enlarger bellows. I set the aperture at f16 and my son set off the Metz.

Voila.
