On the Road to Large Format

I’ve started collecting the odds ‘n’ ends I’ll need to try the large format pinhole camera from Harman Ilford Tech. First up is the 4×5 Double Dark cassette, or whatever its called.

This is the cassette I bought, a Fidelity Deluxe Double Dark slide.

Its called a Double Dark because it can take two sheets of film or paper each side protected by a dark slide.

The flap folds down so you can slide in your film from the bottom. You then fold it back up and insert the dark slide gliding it into this flap to seal the deal. repeat on the opposite side.

There are two screw hooks you use to hold the slides in place.

Not much else to it. I still need to buy a black and white developer, maybe a stop bath and some loose-ish elastic bands.
