Silt processor

I met up with a few friends to shoot an abandoned silt processor, and the ruins of Franklin, Washington, a former mining town.

I was shooting with an Olympus StylusEpic zoom 80, and one of Todd’s 6×6 pinhole cameras.

The Stylus does indeed have a wonderful sharp lens.   I never use the zoom feature, and would be fine if it didn’t have it.   I shot with this camera once before, and it was great.  This time, there was a round light leak in the corners, which I read could be due to dirt on the rubber gasket on the door of the camera.    It’s not a foam seal, its a soft-ish rubber.  I cleaned it.   Let’s see how it does in the future.  Otherwise, its a great compact camera.



Metering for pinhole.


Here are the pinhole photos:



This camera is a lot wider than I thought.


Although it was rainy later, it was a fun day.   And like every excursion, it was a great chance to shoot some film and do something different.

(Afterwards we stopped by an antique store where I bought a FED 5b).

    Very cool location. Glad to see the pinholes with world pin hole coming up this weekend.
