    A chick magnet camera !
    Magnificent!
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    That's beautiful! Please tell us the source for the bellows material. I have a 100 y.o. 8x10 that needs a bellows.

    It's the blackout material from Thorlabs

    There might be a better material for it out there, but I haven't been able to find it.
    Bag bellows for organs are made with rubberized cloths for example.

    The stiffeners in between the 2 layers were cut from 0.015" thick paper stock.

    All of the material for instrument repair that I've seen has been too thick. Great job on your build!

    I've built three 14x17's and the lightest is 26lbs. So 19lbs is awesome! Just right I feel. Holders are not eases bravo on them as well as that is the expensive part of 14x17.
