Assisting Myself – a Wide Angle Self Portrait Wet Plate



click or scroll down for the English version

Für einen kommenden Auftrag habe ich mir ein Ross Xpress 5″ (127mm) F4 Weitwinkelobjektiv bei www.wetplatedreams.com gekauft. Welches ich natürlich vor dem ersten Einsatz testen mußte 🙂
Der Bildkreis des Objektivs deckt knapp 18x24cm ab und somit ergibt das bei einem Cropfaktor von ca. 0,15 19mm auf Kleinbild gerechnet. Ziemlich cool für ein Großformatobjektiv mit Blende 4.0.



Hier noch zwei Fotos vom Objektiv selbst:

English version

I needed a wide angle large format lens for an upcoming assignment. I got myself a Ross Xpress 5″ (127mm) F4 Wide Angle lens from www.wetplatedreams.com . As you can imagine, I had to test it before using it at the assignment.
The lens was made for 13x18cm plates, but it also covers 18×24 with a slight vignette. The crop factor on 18x24cm is about 0,15 and that makes it a 19mm lens compared to full frame. Pretty cool for a F4.0 lens right?



Two more shots from the lens:
