Hi folks,
Some pictures of my new "DIY" 14x17 camera : 6.9 kg of wood, alu, brass and synthetic glass (+thanks to Custom Bellows).
Have a nice day!

Very nice.

What do you use for film holders?

That's much nicer than mine! You should post it in the ULF camera build thread I made a while back, looks nice, really good workmanship.

Show off your hand made ULF camera build!

Nicely done, loukilouko... focal length? And where did you source the bellows? Thanks!

Thanks!
I use a Nikkor W 360mm f 6.5, Ilex Calumet Caltar 20" f 7, Nikkor + Ilex #5 (SK Grimes) 760mm f 11 (if a member is interested, I sell it or exchange against a Nikkor 450mm M).

The 20" (508mm) f/7 Caltar is a real sleeper. They regularly sell on auction for around $500. I think it initially was marketed for the 8x10 format. For years have used one on my 11x14, and love how bright the image is on the GG. Now I learn that it covers 14x17 WOW! Was always careful to keep my front movements to a minimum... guess I don't have to worry about that any more.
