Introducing the Tri TTV

On my last day in Austin I had a few hours to kill before the flight so popped down to South Congress where there are shops that sell weird stuff including some rather, dare I say it, awesome junk stores. One of the smaller ones had a few cameras and lenses and I spotted something rather curious – a triangle prism with a 49mm thread. I couldn’t for the life of me remember what the thread on my 50mm prime is (turns out it’s 52mm…) but figured I might be able to use it for something.

Today, while tinkering with cameras to clear the mind, I brought it into the orbit of the TTV contraption. While the thread on the S7000 is a slightly kooky 46.8mm the prism did slide rather snugly on the outside of the barrel. So I popped it on, shoved it into the ‘trap and took this baby:

Yup, that’ll work.

Later that night I was attending the opening of the Stan’s Cafe warehouse. More on that later as it’s very interesting indeed but since I’d TTV’d their Rice Show it made sense to give the new toy a spin there.

Here’s the set and here’s the slideshow:

And here’s a couple of favourites of mine:

For some reason I feel the need to make it clear that these were not montaged in Photoshop or anything. The composition is as it came out of the camera. I just cropped to a square and messed with the colour and contrast.

So, what do you think? Am I onto something here?

    @Dave C

    Thanks so much for reminding me about Little Boots and her Tenorium. @mixmagic first told me about it and I meant to follow it up.

    The vid on the Little Boots site is amazing, she’s got such a great voice. The Tenorium looks like so much fun too :)
