I like Polaroid 110B and make the 110B convertion to 4X5 camera and focus screen(can use Graflex focus screen hood)

My converted Polaroid 110B can take full 4X5 film,as shown below , the B&W negtive taken by it.and its rangefinder still works well.

It's back is designed specally,so it can holde any holders in just three senconds,and won't lose at all.

the camera 's weight is only 1.3KG(about 2.86 pound)

Its thickness is only 62 MM (folded size240x155x62mm)

very nice.
I did not see you move the film plane back, does it covers entire 4x5 area?

thanks

What is Leica about all this? Is there a red dot? Not even Leica uses a red dot on all of their current models!

The Leica comes from his "selling" website - "like a Leica".

A bit out of place here? Not really D-I-Y.

Yeah . . .Like a Leica. I think maybe he is refering to the paralex corrected combination range-viewfinder as found on Leica M series bodies.

There is a company offering conversions or/and complete cameras. I think there is a second company offering a better? alternative. i dont mean the expensive one.

I don't see where the OP has posted any solicitation, or even a website. It takes some digging to find his personal website on his profile, and then it's in Chinese. Nothing about that is a violation of the guidelines, near as I can tell. The statement that the OP is drawing "Leica" from is: "Like a Big Leica", which wouldn't be the first time I've seen that statement.

But I agree that this is not a do-it-yourself project. I have merged these two threads.

Polacn, please do not ask people to buy a converted Polaroid in this thread. This thread is for discussion of the camera only. If you wish to provide an announcement of a new product or service, please notify the moderators (using the "Contact Us" button at the bottom of this page) and tell us what you propose. We will usually allow a one-time announcement of new products or services, but you'll need a website in English for it to do any good.

The conversion looks as interesting as others we've seen, and as worthy of discussion.

Rick "carry on" Denney

Is this the "Byron" conversion of several years ago? The videos he posted on u-tube looked very good. I lost track of the Byron effort a while back . . .hi still doing it?

"Byron" is still around. I believe Polarcn is a "Byron clone" from mainland China. "Byron" is from Taiwan.
