New panorama gallery online / by Tom Henderix

I posted a new gallery called "Into The Wide".

It will feature some of the images taken on the Hasselblad Xpan, in panorama format of course. The 45mm lens on the camera is stunningly sharp, so I'll be using it for normal 35mm work too (yes, blasphemy, I know). For people who don't know why an Xpan is so special, have a look at this article over at The Luminous Landscape. Or just watch this nice clip by the guys from DigitalRev. A Hasselblad Xpan is basically a rebranded Fujifilm TX-1, so it looks great next to my other digital Fuji's.

These are some of the shots from my first two rolls. Not too happy with the roll I took at Cap Gris Nez, too many bad frames and only a few keepers. These were shot on Ilford FP4 Plus 125, pushed to 250.

The day was completely overcast, so there is no sky whatsoever in most of these. I feel like I should have done a lot better... I only really like the one with the tiny chapel.

Second roll is from a layover in Bilbao. Still too many bad shots, but at least I'm happy with the keepers. Shame about the one that isn't in focus. Can't remember what I did wrong there. Second roll is Ilford Delta 400. I really like this film. I still have to try some Fuji Acros, but of all the films I tried so far, this is by far my favourite.

All images shot on the Hasselblad Xpan and Hasselblad 45mm f4. Developed and scanned by Carmencita Film Lab.
