E76 Old Timey Podcast
Ethan is away making magic in New York City so Nick and Graham go old school with a chatty old-timey podcast. They talk about what they've been doing since the last show, Graham's new Franken Holga 3D Stereo abomination to make pictures no one can figure out, the arrival of Nick's Lomograflok back for Instax Wide, Nick's appearance on Cameraocity (Cocaine and Waffles), and what a sustainable analog future might look like. Thanks to Robbie Cribbs of Sound Trap Studios (https://soundtrapstudios.com/Sound_trap_studios/Home.html) for letting us use the music.

E73 Reimagining the Holga
Graham received a message on Etsy from ArlenB asking if it's possible to recreate the Holga with a few twists. "Out of curiosity, is there anything preventing you from making the plans to print a regular Holga 120GCFN, with an interchangeable lens, zone focusing, and no light leaks, or is that too difficult?" This episode is a discussion about a potential Holga replacement.

E68 Erik Mathy makes Homemade Lenses
About 40 minutes in we experience some audio issues and the quality degrades and suddenly Graham is replaced with Wallace Shawn (thanks, Ethan). Sorry about that. There are quite a few swears in this episode. We welcome Erik Mathy (IG: erikhmathy) to talk about homemade lenses, how he got from the Land of Cheese to the Land of Fog, why you should match your lens to the subject you shoot, and many other things. The link to the Google Docs spreadsheet to calculate your own lens: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yQ3dsD0Rs-HflRcnPYHSmK0soLXtykGAPl8pdZcrBpM/edit#gid=0 The link to Susan Burnstine's website: http://www.susanburnstine.com/ Simon Forster of the LFPP (https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/) and The Classic Lenses Podcast (https://www.classiclensespodcast.com/) wrote this in the YouTube chat during the show: Suggestion for the title of this week's show; Graham's Felt-Lined Shaft. That's all on you, Simon. Watch the show on YouTube if you want: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJd7umuR8Fg)

E65 Stereo Photography
Ethan, Nick, and Graham get together to talk about stereo photography, the use of two lenses to create images that appear to be in 3D. Graham is enthusiastic. Nick is skeptical. Ethan is pedantic. Ian Fleming (https://www.instagram.com/ifleming/ or simply @ifleming) stops by in the latter part of the show to talk about his experiences with the subject. You can read Ethan's Wiki article about Ren Ng (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren_Ng). However, Ethan's presentation about stereo photography that he presented in front of 1 (one, as in one more than zero, which we should all acknowledge is greater than zero) is not currently available on the interwebs. He thinks he can resurrect it and if he can, we all think he should put it on the Homemade Camera YouTube. And, speaking of, this episode is available on the aforementioned YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ3JmlNccVI&t=140s). If you've never been to YouTube, this would be a good time to get your feet wet. It's a really cool place. Seriously. I'm not joking, it's cool.

E61 Paper Towel Tubes and BFL
This week we talk about making your own lenses, why Back Focal Length is meaningless to Ethan, and how to play around with loose achromat lens elements to make your own, homemade lens. The formula: Formula: F = (f1 x f2) / (f1 + f2 - d) BFL = (f2 x (d - f1)) / (d - (f1 + f2)) f1 is the front lens, f2 is the back lens, d is the distance between the lenses. F is the focal length, BFL is the distance between the back lens and the recording media (film, sensor) A link to a spreadsheet with the formula in it: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yQ3dsD0Rs-HflRcnPYHSmK0soLXtykGAPl8pdZcrBpM/edit?usp=sharing Special thanks to Erik Mathy (https://www.instagram.com/erikhmathy/ @erikmathy). We first heard about this formula on an episode of the Large Format Photography Podcast (https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/) We also talk about a modified Adolescent Crown Graphic Nick's working on. Ethan mostly tells Graham his formula is wrong. Graham mostly tells Ethan he names his products after rodents and wonders when the Cameradactyl Chipmonk is coming out. Graham offers to give away a bunch of darkroom equipment to someone in Northeastern Florida (Jacksonville to Ocala, Daytona to Gainesville). Email Graham@homemadecamera.com if you are interested. Warning, Graham swears at the very end. If this had been edited by Simon of the LFPP and Classic Lenses, there would have been a gap where you guessed what Graham said but because Graham edited the show, you hear a bunch of F-words in a row. Finally, we may be taking the month of November off from recording. Don't worry, we'll be back by the Winter Solstice when things are darkest.
