A stalled low pressure system over Canada has given us some interesting weather this week.
Feeling a little DIY, I recently made a pinhole bodycap for my Canon 40d. Simple and ancient technology married to a fancy pants digital camera. Still in the tweaking stage, here are a couple of the encouraging results.
The first rose of the season.
Lake Ontario, Oswego, NY.
The Kodak Jiffy II, a nifty $5 find at a recent garage sale.
A folding 6×9 ‘six-20’ camera with two viewfinders (horizontal & vertical), the original Jiffy had a really cool Art-Deco motif; the sequel here just has a plain black faux leather covering. It has a ‘twindar’ lens with two focus settings: ‘5-10ft’ & ‘beyond 10ft’; two shutter speeds: ‘I’ (about 1/60) and ‘T’ (bulb) and two apertures as well.
It needed some TLC after I purchased it. After a thorough cleaning, the biggest problems were a sticky shutter and folding mechanism. Careful application of some ball-bearing oil resolved both issues. As Kodak discontinued its ‘six-20’ film for quite some time now, I trimmed the plastic spindle on a roll of 120 film and used the metal 620 take up spool that came with the camera.
Spring is springing here in CNY. Beautiful day at the park.
