Fabulous Film Fridays – October 14, 2011

Below is another image from the archives using a camera that I regret ever selling the Hasselblad Xpan. Why did I sell that cool little camera? Probably because at the time I was hungry or hurting for cash; a common cycle in the feast or famine industry of photography. Hell, food is over-rated isn’t it?

I sure hope my little Xpan went to a good home, if it’s just collecting dust (or anyone has one that’s collecting dust), I would be happy to take it and dust it off for you and post more pictures on the Fabulous Film Friday post!

  1. Beautiful! Love the wide angle view. 🙂

  2. I drooled over one at the camerastore last week!

  3. Great shot! Love the colours, and the panoramic veiw!

  4. Darwin, you used RF Camera, too! Now I feel embarrassed to show off my Zeiss Ikon to you. Xpan (to me TX-1)…I wanted the camera and I still keep Japanese article about the camera. I always think Fujinon is underrated. Beautiful and subtle mixture of color in the panorama frame….I love this image.

  5. Cool shot Darwin, but the posted image is so small that it looks kind of over-saturated, animation-ish. I recommend busting out of the 400px width constraint. 540 is good, 640 is better, and either is absolutely useless to print so… xo

  6. Walt Anderson Says:

    I have an x-pan kit with all three lenses. Let me know if you are interested.


  7. Beautiful image Darwin! More and more, I’m finding myself being drawn to the panoramic format. I’ve made a few panoramics by stitching a couple frames in Photoshop but I find it hard to visualize the image when I’m out in the field. I wish someone made a digital panoramic camera…

  8. Beautiful, Darwin. Fantastic angle of view and composition.

  9. I very much like your panoramic fall treescape and also appreciate the XPAN. However, I am and have been using my XPAN much too rarely and therefore would sell it if you are still searching for one.

    All the best,
