    interesting camera, just curious of what film does it exactly use? and how exactly does it work as far as keeping lines straight, doesnt seem to operate the same way a slr tilt shift lens works.

    It makes 4 images on a single roll of 120.

    As for keeping the lines straight, don't tip the camera.

    what do you mean 4 images on 1 roll? would that mean you are using 2 normal frames for 1 shot for example?

    and when i say straight lines, i mean converging lines.


    ok i think figured it out.

    there are no converging lines because it has a 3:1 aspect ratio?

    There are no frames on a roll of film until the camera creates them. This
    camera makes four 6cm X 17cm images (frames) on a roll of 120 film or
    eight of them on a roll of 220 film.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    There is an Australian natural-light photographer who does some absolutely astounding work with that camera. His name is Mark Gray, and he has been featured on American, Australian, and European TV shows. He works in the idyllic landscape tradition, with basically no Photoshop manipulation, no HDR, and so on. His web site is Mark Gray Landscape Photography - About Mark Gray
