    Andrey,

    Really well done. There is something to be said for making your own camera. I want to make my own 20x24 camera at some point.

    Question: It looks as though your focus knob is close to the front standard, what is the thinking behind placing the focus that far away from the rear of the camera, especially when the back can extend further away from the camera?

    Daniel, yes it is in the front of the base, but it is easily reachable by me, (I'm 1.7m high) even at full rear extension. You have a point though! That's why the prototypes are for!
    Thanks!
    Andrey

    We'll see. I'm in the middle of building second proto, this time 10x12, strictly wet plate oriented, together with holder. I'd like to think that I'll finish it till the middle of September, and then a small production, with the most appreciated. Regarding the price, will try to keep it as low as possible, but don't know for now, exactly how much!
    Thanks for the kind words!
