Please click on the audio play button above for a 6 minute review of this amazing film now in 120 for the first time ever. Sample images below!

• Black and white negative film

• Variable speed (ISO 200-800) I’ve pushed to 1600 with very good results, but the sweet spot is around 400.

• 120 format!!!!!!!!!!!!

• Classic cinematic look

• Rich tonality

• Excellent sharpness 

One of a kind camera meets one of a kind film!

EveNSteve like this film so much we’ve already made an artwork using it. Click on the movie below to watch the one minute artwork film by EveNSteve:

There Are Forests In The Animals

Sample images!!!

As I mentioned in the audio above I really wanted to showcase the cinematic feeling this film has, but also show the creative flexibility that is possible. This is not a modern film, and that is a very good thing!

A few sample images below showing the packaging which is of very high quality and a little bit of camera porn….

In conclusion I think the images speak for themselves. How wonderful in 2021 to be welcoming a “new” B&W film to our world…

Presenting The Cuboid Selectascope

After quite a while working with my Cuboid camera I asked Matt Abelson of Abelson Scopeworks if a turret with 6 scopes would be possible to retrofit to my Cuboid while maintaining the ultra wide 25mm focal length… all I have to say is that it is spot on for my artworks and damn does it look nice!!

With the custom SELECTASCOPE option I have the choice of F196 – F32 with a Zone Plate at F45! The varying degree of sharpness and the option of overlaying different levels of sharpness on the same negative through multiple exposure is a creative A-Bomb…. ART Bomb that is!

The Cuboid Pinhole Camera Pimped Out!

I’ve always been interested in the processes of resurrecting old cameras with new coverings… So when I discovered that www.cameraleather.com was here in Vermont and I had my new Cuboid camera just waiting for some luxurious material to cover its 4 sides I had to make the move. The Lizard skin I chose (yes!) is very durable, feels great and best of all helps keep this all-metal camera from getting too cold to hold in our Vermont climate…

The application process is very easy: the material has an adhesive backing and I found the detailed instructions provided on Camera Leather’s web site very helpful. The selection of materials available on their site is diverse and they offer coverings for many, many cameras… the Cuboid of course was a custom job.

One word of caution-  Camera Leather is not flawless when it comes to returning phone messages, email questions, etc… so don’t hesitate in sending more than one email.

Am I glad to have it now though? Dude- check it out!

Viva la Revolution-
