Instant Fuji film for pinhole work ?
« on: March 09, 2010, 03:15:37 pm »

I currently shoot pinholes with a body cap on my D2x but I want to try a 4x5 pinhole camera. I already have a couple 4x5 film holders from years past but i am also wondering about Fuji's instant film and their holder. Will the long exposures work well with this film ?  Here is the holder and film.

Terry. The Fuji instant films work great with 4x5 cameras ... speaking from my Zero Image 4x5 experience. I used the FP-100 series, mostly in daylight. But I did few exposures longer than 20 seconds. I did notice that there's plenty of latitude for anything longer than a few seconds. Just takes plenty of experimentation really. Fun stuff.

I was using two older Polaroid holders, so I can't speak about the new Fuji holder. I know the Zero Image website addresses holder compatibility.

BWT ... I am selling my 4x5 pinhole, if you are looking to buy.

The FP 100 basically works like regular film, only it has a very strong reciprocity effect (term ?) with long exposures .
E.g. , a proper 8s exposure for Velvia will require 30s on FP 100 .
