|The 16mm format is so small you
have to use the entire area or the grain tends to get a little obtrusive.
The lens isn't exactly razor sharp either and camera shake also rears it's
head . Since you have no control over the shutter speed, you need to make
sure you hold the camera very steadily or bolt it to a tripod. These three
images are of "Smeatons Tower" now on Plymouth Hoe. Originally
it was atop the notorious Eddystone rock and was the first stone lighthouse
to be built there after it's wooden predecessors were washed a way. In time
it was replaced by a larger structure, but rather than blow up the redundant
lighthouse, which was mooted, it was elected to dismantle, then rebuild
it as an attraction in Plymouth in the 1860s.
