The Speed Graphic has been christened
Also when shooting with the lovely Zoe Kelly I took the opportunity to use the Graflex Speed Graphic for the first time and shoot some 4x5!
Needless to say it was a much slower pace than I am used too and a huge thank you to Zoe for her patience holding the pose while setting up the shot!
I am really happy with the result, I developed it the Taco method as at that time I did not have a dedicated developing tank. As for scanning I had to scan in two halves and stitch together in photoshop as part of the post processing, as my scanner is not big enough to handle 4x5.
I scanned in at a massive 4800dpi and wow the quality blew me away, I have read articles suggesting that a 4x5 negative is equal to a 150-200mp camera!
Not bad for a camera from 1951!
Look out for lots more from this baby :)
