I have always fancied an Xpan but like most film cameras especially so called “top end” cameras they demand bonkers money.
So when I got my hands on my Fuji GW690iii I remembered a post over on Emulsive showing how to shoot 35mm film giving you panoramic images similar to an Xpan.
So recently I performed the modification which is totally reversible and went out to shoot a roll of Fuji Sensia 200 just to see if it worked.
My framing was a bit hit or miss and I decided to scan the frames to show the sprockets which was a little awkward on my Epson v500 but I managed it eventually.
Here is the link to the original article if you are interested, I didn’t think there was any point just repeating it on my blog as EM writes far better than I 🙂 … TEXPan ……
Well here are the images … Overall I was pretty happy with the results which look great when you first pull them out of the tank as big slides, I managed to get 13 usable frames from a 36 exposure roll but did have bit of a light leak which only showed up when using this mod and is fine when I reverted the camera back to 120 🙂
All images on my blog are available as prints just drop me an email
I also have a film only blog over at usingfilm.wordpress.com if you want a peek 🙂
