    The scene with Gene Wilder and the Creature performing 'puttin' on the ritz' ... as a scientific demonstration ... makes me pee in my pants every time i watch.

    Also in the Mary Shelly parody department ... can anyone identify this quote:

    "Those fellows at Radio Shack said I was mad, but who's mad NOW??!!"

    Frank, you're just too square! Lighten up man - I'm sure the manufacturer of the "FarnARCA 717" has a very firm understanding of the importance of standards - both front and rear .....

    Kerry, I can't wait for the unveiling. My suggested name comes from an Aussie term - "farnarkling" - which means to spend time doing pseudo-productive work. Sort of like what I'm doing now instead of actually performing the work I'm paid for on company time ....

    Cheers,

    more recent than that.

    hint ... he refers to the creature as "the greatest advance in labor relations since the cat-o-nine-tails."

    OK, now that the Franken-ARCA has made it's public debut at the conference in Rockford, here's some pics of the completed camera:


    The camera with a 600mm Fujinon C focused at about 100ft. I have enough rail and bellows for about 6" - 7" more extension.


    The front and rear standards compressed onto a short 15cm rail section. Even with a lens mounted (240mm Computar) the thickness of the camera is about 5" (with the little rail section sticking out by about an inch).


    The camera with a 305mm G Claron focused at about 20ft.

    Franken, my foot - nothing crude or half baked about this one. Kerry, that's fabulous. Congratulations on a really nice piece of work!

    I agree with Oren. You'll have to come up with a different name for it, Kerry. I see no ugly "stitch marks" on this beauty.

    I like it!

    My .02 addition would be to either anodize or paint the rear support frame black, then to strip the wood (admittedly beautiful) and stain it a deep dark ebony color. I think that it would look super slick, and a little less piecemeal, if it were all black.
