Medium Format Frame Edge Scans
This set of sample photographs from Borg scopes
were taken with Pentax 67 medium format cameras
and Kodak Ektachrome E200 film.
Each of the strip samples consist of 3 strips
scanned along the long dimension of a 6x7 (or 6x9) frame
The strips are scanned from the left edge,
center, and right edge of the frame, respectively,
as indicated by the light areas in the diagram at right.
As you view these samples, remember that external
variables such seeing, tracking, and focus accuracy
are unavoidably affecting these shots, so comparisons
with other Borg scopes or other brands of scopes
cannot be considered to be practical. However, one
purpose of these samples is to allow you to see the
vignetting and sharpness performance of the scopes at
the extreme corners of the frames vs. the center.
If you are viewing this on a monitor standard of 72
dpi, you are looking at about a 10x magnification of
the film image.
