TV commercial shot with a pinhole

Posted 2 April, 2006 in Pinhole

Cinematographer Anders Uhl shot a TV spot for Buell with a pinhole on his movie camera. He wrote:

"The Buell spot was mostly 12 FPS, 180 shutter Ilford HP5+ pushed three stops. I initially tested Kodak TMAX in a 535, but the results were not quite as good as the Ilford, which holds up very well at just about any rating. A freak week long rainstorm drove my exposure down and muddied things up a little (too many greys), but you can get some fairly sharp images if you have sharp contrast and strong highlights."
