Getting photography wrong since the 80s.

Tungsten Nordstein's recent activity

  • Exakta 35mmSLR with removable VF. My dad gave it me when I went to art school. Later, as I specialised in photo-based art, he told me to exchange it for a more modern camera and I got the Canon...

  • @Richard Butler
    'and ask them how many red pixels it contains'
    It's a deliberately misleading question. It's a well-understood way of misdirecting people. In this sense the article is about how...

  • 'the image of the strawberries contains no 'red pixels.'' but 'there is red information in the image '

    In other words, there are pixels with red in them.

    That reminds me – have you heard the one...

  • @matthew saville

    There are many people who do b&w reversal processing for cine-film, for example, but dr5 are in the USA which would suit you. I've often wondered what method they use, as they...

  • Replied in strawberry
    That's a bit like saying – 'what to do with a pencil?'. Teeth, ears, finger nails, ants, eyes, holes, dust, chewing gum, rusty nails, magnets, rotten apple cores, crumpled paper, magazines, ...
  • Replied in strawberry
    That's what I was thinking, looking at these – especially the other two examples. I could not remember anything quite so commanding, or quite so mysterious with the GRD. Thingness in spades. The ...
  • How annoying. More animated UI craziness, for people with ADS? More unwatchable stuff? More memory-hungry screens? I think my response all adds up to the fact that I would not use it.

  • Replied in Another one...
    Failed photography is a nice idea and a hard one to pull off. I think here it's partly the way the cat's chops are chopped off at the bottom, but the weird vibrations of light arising and receding ...
  • Replied in Small statue
    This reminds me of colour photo of a wax head I once saw. Like that , mysterious and unfathomable. Also the scale feels impossible to judge.
  • Replied in strawberry
    This is nice. I like the line of no focus around the right-hand perimeter of the body. Also, the leaf/sepal protruding out way, which is hard to resolve and hence intriguing.

    >Meh. Wake me up when Agfa Scala is back


    Adox Scala:


    'Compared to its AGFA Original this film has 160 ASA and therefore...

  • I changed it on the spur of the moment the other day inside a post, and then forgot to make it permanent. Glad you enjoyed it. I thought it sounded more appropriate given my current detachment ...
  • Ron, My seemingly flippant remark about cats, probably hides the fact that I do like these. I used to enjoy photographing cats in the street wherever I went with my GRD. This one looks very ...
  • Replied in Door
    This is nice. Part photo, part sculpture? Was it the 40mm converter again?
  • At last a cat. Now you're talking!
  • @Roland Karlsson
    I see you point. Unlike pinholes, the straws do not act like lenses.. You call it 'no camera', and yet here is an image captured with it. Is that a paradox?

    The root of the word...

  • @Digitalmoontide
    we're all waiting for you to make one.

  • @HakanL
    Until end-users are capable of designing their own digital cameras, articles such as this are going to be about as interesting as it gets. There's only so much excitement yet another...

  • It's a massively parallel pinhole camera

    300 mm between pinhole and filmplane (my estimate)
    3 mm pinhole (my estimate)

    = f100

    which is the right ballpark.
