    The pine board camera build

    Not sure where to post this so move if in the wrong forum.
    Tomorrow we are going to build something that resembles a camera and may actualy take a picture.
    I`m going to invent as I go and build what I think will work as I enjoy pain. lol
    I have a sawmill so have lots of lumber to cut wrong and piece together
    The billows are 28 inches at the rear and 12 in the front, I will be using the old film holder and 5x7 paper in it as that is what I have.
    It should be a fun funny project so get a few chuckles and aggravation along with us.

    That will be good fun. The post should probably be in the DIY thread, but I'll follow wherever.

    If you don't believe it, look into an 8x10 viewfinder!

    Good morning, don`t know for sure what lens I`ll be trying if any that will be the first experimenting this morning. I have know idea what will work to get a image on a 5x7 paper at that far away.
    Thanks for the replies, heading to the shop shortly.

    With this level of expertise you should talk to the guys that try to make their Wanderlust camera. They would surely tell you otherwise.
