The Harman Ilford ‘Titan’

It’s finally here and I’m now starting to feel concerned about how I’m going to use it having never been near a 4×5 (or 5×4) camera let alone shot with one. I will add to that my concerns about black and white developing despite blasting through two C-41 kits (averaging around 20-30 120/35mm/127 rolls per kit) and reading about some B&W guys concerns that C-41 sounds ‘difficult’.

I’m sure in a few weeks I’ll be wondering what I was all ‘worked up’ about but until then …

Here’s what the kit looked like when I un-boxed it:



The pinhole camera itself is made by Walker Cameras. It feels light but very sturdy and well constructed.

The camera with a Fidelity double dark slide in place and a shot of the accessory shoe and one of the spirit levels.

The kit comes with two boxes of paper, one of which is a direct positive paper the other box is a paper negative, and one box of Delta 100 negative film.

This is the exposure calculator they provide. Its a pretty basic construction and it’ll probably do the job really well but I’d love to see an interactive iPhone/Android version if its not already in development similar to Pocket Lightmeter.

I aim to take this and my Ilford ID11 developer & Rapid fixer up north with me this weekend and try to develop with some peace and lots and lots of quiet!
