Salva modificheinterchangeable bellows on Hyper Camera 4×5

Ciao ragazzi!

more info here and if you want to stay update: https://www.stenopeika.com/hyper-bag-bellows/

Today I will show you how easy it is to replace the traditional bellows with a bag bellows even on the cheaper Stenopeika camera: the Hyper camera 4×5 basic.

But why change the bellows?

Because some lenses, especially those under 90mm, making very close the standard and crush so much the folds of the bellows that prevent camera movements.

It is therefore necessary a bag bellows to be able to fully exploit the movements even with this type of lens.

I would point out that the interchangeable bellows, for cameras at this price, is a rather rare virtue 🙂

Ciao a tutti!

Wetplate holders by StenopeiKa

Ciao Ragazzi

Today is the day to present an evergreen of stenopeiKa’s catalog: the wetplate holder, in this case 8×10″ but what you will see in the video also applies to the formats 5×7″ and 4×5″, and also ULF.

The features:

  1. the external dimensions are those of the film holder fidelity, so you can use them on all the cameras on the market
  2. the materials (pvc and aluminum) are chosen to be resistant to the chemicals used during the collodion photography process, also based on my personal experience in this type of photography
  3. easily washable materials
  4. you will not see, in the final picture on the plate, the corners where the plate is placed, this is a small secret of this support 🙂
  5. the book opening is very easy and comfortable
  6. double closure, magnetic and mechanical

Why use 11×14″ wetplate holder with magnetic connections, 1st part

Ciao ragazzi!

Today i’ll show you the details of StenopeiKa 11×14″ native wetplate holder and 3 good reasons to to use it.

So the first one is a technical reason, this holder is different from the commercial holder because it is not plugged into the camera but it is attracted to the camera so the accidental movements are avoided during the insertion phase, because if you use this holder you don’t have a insertion phase!

The second one is esthetic reason, this holder resemble perfectly the external camera profile, obviously i speak for Stenopeika cameras, folding and tailboard, but with some modifies i could make it also for a other cameras.

The third reason (I didn’t say it in this video, but i’ll explain better in the next one)  is that the holder accepts plates up to 4 mm in thickness, one of the few in the market to accept such thick plates.

BUT TODAY I HAVE ALSO A GIFT FOR YOU!

Only for you who follow me on the blog and on the social, I have 3 more videos with extra content where you can discover the secrets of the 11×14″ wetplate holder and special gift.
