panoramic endeavors part II: the 2016 saga

…five years after I got my hands on the Vivitar PN2011 and shot just one film with it, I decided to take it out for a spin one more time. I spent half a month between April and May 2016 doing location scouting for a commercial, so I had enough incentive (and lots of landscapes) to shoot some extra frames for fun. this time I used a different film: Arista Edu Ultra 400, which is actually a rebadged Fomapan 400 and it doesn’t leave the best impressions, especially when compared to Kodak Tri-X or something. I souped it in Kodak T-Max developer, 1:4 dilution, for 7:30 minutes @ 20c, and scanned the film with the greatest 35mm film scanner of all, the Pakon F-135.

so, a mediocre film paired up with a plastic panoramic camera which will inevitably over-expose it by a couple (or more) stops. let’s see.

…and here is this little 15 bucks of a camera:
