    Default MOD Portsdown Main


    Wots and myself recently took a look around Portsdown Main a former ministry of defence research site. which produced advanced radar for the Royal Navy. An interesting place if a bit stripped out.

    I took the oppertunity to test out my new medium format camera, (Mamiya 645)

    It was a case of getting to grips with the operation of a camera that is in many ways very different to the 35mm format i'm used to. Considering I didnt have a light meter at the time I think they have come out quite well.

    That's new then. I know the power was on, but there was surprising no alarms/security when we went last year.
    Nah mate, it was already broken.

    It could be new, there Were PIR's in reception at the front and in a corridoor at the back. It appears to be wired into the lighting system so looks fairly advanced. Its still doable but its just a case of being careful.
