View Full Version : Xpan Users now have a dedicated gallery
All you Xpan / TX camera users that are looking for a place to showcase your work, the RFF gallery now has a dedicated GALLERY (http://www.rangefinderforum.com/photopost/showgallery.php/cat/533/password/) for the wide format Xpan camera. Please take the time to post your work and share with all.
I don't have an X-Pan (yet), but I love this format. Have you considered making your shots into Japanese-style scroll hangings? (Kakemono) A three foot long scroll would be a real eye-popper.
hmmmm.. that ssomething worth considering. I will look into it.
I've always been intested in pano cams but their price for even the FSU examples (Horizont) have somehow kept me away from them. I know the Horizont / Noblex philosophy is different from the X-Pan but the Horizon is probably the most affordable panoramic camera apart from the APS format, of course.
I've seen some people using the X-Pan for street shooting, not to mention it gives a completely new perspective for that kind of shots so it may be a field worth to explore.
I am glad to see some activity in this section. I am excited to see more xpan users :) Keep up the good work folks. before you know it we will have a world class Xpan gallery :)
Above all else, I wish the Xpan wasn't so cool looking. Just seeing one makes me want to hold it and use it.
Question for you Xpanners: how do you scan your film? I've not come across a film scanner that will take these dimensions. Do you divide your scanning into two halves in a standard 35mm holder then reassemble in Photoshop or something?
I use a minolta multiscan which will scan up to 6x9
