Finally: the Harman TiTAN 8x10 inch Pinhole Camera


The new Harman TiTAN 8x10 inch Pinhole Camera should be available from March 4th, 2013. It will be formally announced on Sunday at the Focus on Imaging show in Birmingham, UK, and available shortly after (through http://www.ilfordphoto.com). It is expected to cost about £400 (Wow!).

It is rather a large beast compared to the previous 4x5 inch TITAN pinhole camera.

The concept of the 8x10 inch version is the same as the 4x5 inch version.

Leon Taylor (from filmwasters) got his hands on an early pre-production model and made a nice film about his first tests on the cold coasts of Kent.
You can view his video (12 minutes) on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/60680136
"This special edition of the filmwasters video podcast features the new Harman Titan 8×10 pinhole camera. Leon got his hands on a pre-release camera to put through its paces and see what this over-sized beastie can do."
