Photographs from the Spectator Flash experiment!!!

Here are some of the photographs I was able to take with the old Spectator Flash camera….




Spectator Flash

Spectator Flash

This is a Spectator Flash 120 format film camera that was on display at dcube studios in Greensboro,NC. The camera was supposed to have a flash with it, but that is now long gone.

There are only two exposure modes on the camera. 

The Time setting allows the user to determine how long the shutter is open.

The Inst. setting is set by the manufacturer, which i estimate to be at around 1/60 of a second.

It produces an image of 6 x 9 cm and there are no adjustments that can be made for exposure so i guessed the cameras settings are around 1/60 @ f 5.6. I exposed about 4 rolls of Kodak 160 VC film with it, so we’ll see what happens……..

Pictures will be up as soon as i get my film back…..

Vintage Kodak 3a. Pocket Camera

This Is my great grandfather’s Kodak 3a. Folding Pocket Camera, along with the leather carrying case.

I shot these on a light table with a diffused tungsten balanced 750 hot light underneath and a scoop lighting it from the side to get some texture.

Shot with Canon XTI with 50mm lens at 100 ISO

f/8 @ 1/4 of a second

See Below for my lighting setup.
