    "Hobo" 8x10 and 5x7 cameras

    I found one old thread about the Hobo "point and shoot" 8x10 and 5x7 cameras sol d by Bostick & Sullivan, but no user reviews. Has anyone tried one? They look kinda' fun. See www.bostick-sullivan.com/Hobo/welcome.htm

    You might also want to check out http://www.Kerik.com/. He has a portfolio of images made with a home-made wide-angle 8x10 (and printed in platinum/palladium) which looks a lot like the Hobo.

    "Hobo" 8x10 and 5x7 cameras

    I was intrigued with the Hobo design when I first saw it on the B&S web page. I decided I would build one for myself. I bought two 8x10 film holders, found a used 90 mm Anglon lens and went to work reverse engineering the camera. It turned out great. I get nothing but rave reviews of the camera and photos. I am doing a project of "peephole Portraits" of friends and interesting people I know. I give total credit to the originators of the design and tell people to buy from them. This was a great camera building project and an excellent camera to use. Leroy Beal
