Horizont

Postby Julio1fer » Sun Sep 28, 2014 1:17 pm

I have been Horizonting around the city, hunting for buildings and cityscapes. Which city, of course Montevideo in little Uruguay. This city label in Pocitos area bothers me. Are we applying for ISO 9000, that we must label everything?

The camera arrived some time ago from Russia. It took almost six months for the technician to get right those seals around the rotating turret, as I posted in Craig's forum. Here is the thing. You really should use that handle unless you want your fingernails to be part of the composition.

The thrash in that beautiful Bella Vista dock is unbelieveable.

I know other members have used panoramic cameras. What are your thoughts on the Horizons, Noblex and Hasselblad panoramics?

Film was FP4+ in Beutler.

Hi, Julio,

Those are nice, sharp pictures. You appear to have some great architecture in Montevideo.

I'm impressed by the depth of focus in your shots. What is the focal length of the lens on that camera?

Best,
D

ISO9000 labeling notwithstanding, you put that camera to good use, Julio. Splendid renditions of some very iconic structures.

Thanks, Dennis and PF! The theater building was built at about the time of the American Civil War. Congress building was built much later, in 1925, with no expenses spared. The Congress interiors are really outstanding, if you except the occupants!

The lens is a 28mm. Aperture for these shots was f/11 in a sunny, clear afternoon. Focus is fixed in the Horizont, so you really need the DOF

I believe that the first models used a 50mm lens. As the turret rotates almost 180 degrees, I guess that angular coverage would be about the same with a 50mm - the difference is of course in the larger DOF of the 28mm.
