    Re: Show off your camera!

    Three of us from the APUG forum went to Lower Kalimna Falls in the Great Otway National Park in Victoria Australia on Saturday after there had been 100 mm of rain over the previous couple of days, and one of the guys took some shots of me using the 8x10 Tachihara.

    Re: Show off your camera!

    This is my Plaubel Peco Profi 8 x 10. I took this shot last weekend for promotional posters and invitations to an expo of two artists (hence the 'les deux artistes' promotional name) - the show will be highlighting the juxtaposition between a friend's paintings and my photography here in southwestern France.

    I had to 'plant' the rail at that angle to accentuate the camera 'looking' at the feet on the otherwise empty black canvas.

    This is a great camera, I only wish it wasn't so heavy to trudge around!

    Cheers,

    Johnny
    Are we truly creative, or simply too lethargic to become pedestrian?

    Re: Show off your camera!

    Here's my primary LF camera, the early Toyo Field. For it I have 4x5, 5x7, half-plate and whole-plate backs.
    I'm posting these in part for Frank P., who seems to have also recently found one of these half-platers converted for 5x7, but with a different back. I believe my 5x7 back was adapted from the Toyo 5x7 rail camera.

    It's wearing a Fujinon W 180/5.6, the early one. Covers both 5x7 and WP fine.
    Last picture shows the WP pyramid-type extension. (I have the full bellows extension assembly for it also.)

    It's a nice camera isn't it? I am not thrilled with the DeVere back I got stuck with but it works fine, it just overhangs the camera and is built heavier than the rest of the body. Your back looks a little better suited.

    started out with this. some stripping, gentle sanding, and first coat of poly, and I'm here. Sorry for the white balance issues, but the cherry (I think) is looking reallllly nice.

    Bulldog 5x4 Kit

    OK, I feel pretty bad for the cross-posting today, but I couldn't find this thread when I wanted it!

    Moderators - feel free to delete one or both of the other posts I did today (sorry!)

    Anyway, here is my Bulldog 5x4 "kit" camera. Although it's a kit, it's taken a LOT of finishing (sanding, priming, painting etc..) to get it looking nice instead of looking like an MDF box. I know it's not perfect, but it's certainly unique and has a certain "character" I think.

    Looks nice to me. Congratulations on the finish effort. I have a suggested nickname.. The Red Baron.

    I like “The Red Baron” too.

    If the flashy camera “adds light,” you can fill shadows … and meter for higher zones!

    "The Red Baron" it is then!

    Thanks for your comments - I'll let you know how he performs once I've sent some film through him.

    Cheers,
    Dave
