“Paris Through Pentax”


The city of Paris as seen through the viewfinder of a Pentax 67. I guess this is cheaper than actually shooting the film! Watch “Paris Through Pentax” below!


Video by Maison Carnot.

    I really like this. The great 90 degree contrast where the video camera is looking down but the Pentax looks out, so you get a very nice effect where the periphery is different from the central frame (something I sort of forgot happens with modern cameras/phones – the periphery is always just a continuation of the frame). Also, certain viewfinders just look fantastic. The big camera obscura of the Pentax is amazing (catches that flare around 20sec!).

    really amazing!

  • so good

  • why does everything look so much more awesome through a viewfinder?

  • CLO

    The image/light coming through the lens is being projected on a glass plate inside the camera. So in essence you are watching a real time focused light projection inside a black box.

    I want one of these in the worst way
