Is it possible to convert a 4x5 view camera into a 4x5 handheld camera with a helciol mount.
Seems rather simple, wouldn't you just attach both the rear and front plates of a view camera together, seal for light leaks, then attach a helcoil mount to whatever lens board you have and attach lens? offcourse you would have to atleast work out distances for lens to film plane etc.
And are there any shiftable lens boards that you can attach to most view cameras.
Want to find a inexpensive way to make a camera that has ability to shift, a variety of backs, and is portable enough to handhold. Any ideas.
For something that was similair to what l was thinking have a look here
Thanks in advance.
