Thread: Show us your home made camera...

    Re: Show us your home made camera...

    Here I've attached the Pentax 6x7 Strap lugs, and the cable release extension. So this is how I intend to carry the camera outside, it's actually very comfortable and weighs only 3.5 lbs. On the other shoulder I will carry my favorite Swedish medical bag, with holders and related stuff. Very compact and discreet.

    I'm hoping I can take my Wife shooting tomorrow at the local botanical garden "Crystal Palace". A good place to shoot inside when it is cold. I have some 4x5" HP5+ and Tri-X Ortho loaded up ready to go. Eighteen sheets in all.

    Re: Show us your home made camera...

    Just posted this in the regular "show us your LF camera" thread, but it ought to be here.

    I've finally finished it. Bellows are ugly and not quite straight, but they fold and they're light tight, so that's something. I've got a Symmar 360mm mounted and I'm waiting for a 1000mm CF tube to arrive in the mail for using my APO-Ronar. Now I just need to make a couple more lens boards and an adapter so I don't always need the giant/heavy packard mount when I'm just using the Symmar or my Angulon 210 f/6.8.

    That's lovely work; I have a Sinar Symmar 360mm on an auto-iris Norma board. Great glass. Love it

    Do you have a 1000mm Apo Ronar? I've been looking for one for years that is affordable. I have 'em all from 150 up to 800mm

    My APO Ronar is a 600mm. The 1000mm tube is for a focusing rail long enough to shoot portraits with it.

    Hi Everyone,
    I've recently started a YouTube Channel to document my camera making process. Right now I'm making an all aluminum medium format camera using a combination of methods including casting, welding, and machining.
    Check it out and let me know what everyone things!

    Here is the most recent video:

    Some interesting videos there... but my word it looks heavy - what does it weigh?

    Sliding box camera with a vintage Petzval lens (has aperture) and a modern Cambo rear board, so I can use modern film holders.
    Portrait machine, this camera focuses from 90 cms to 2.90 meters.
    I has no shutter, I plan to use my black hat and shoot low light sittings on ISO 100 film.

    It wasn't fully completed in the pictures. It is now.
    Cheers,
    JN
