Sample pics from the 617 camera

Here at last are some sample pictures from the 617 camera up for sale on ebay right now. I finally figured out how to make a scanner I have access to scan 6x9 from 120 film. These images are three scans pasted together in photoshop to cover the full 17 cm negative. I didn't always get the levels exactly right between the three scans. Any artifacts you see (like the overexposed center of the train tacks picture) are just differences in levels and not artifacts on the negs. These exposures were in the 10-20 second range, depending on the light. The film used was Agfa APX 100.

In the above picture, the power poles truly are leaning outwards - that's not distortion. I find if the camera is kept level you can't even tell it has a curved plane.

You can see pics of the camera itself in the post below.
