  1. Re: 'Journey' in trying to build a 1850 sliding box camera

    Nice work, Ron. Enjoyed your approach to the whole project. For fine detail cuts I use Dozuki, etc type of saws....they leave v. thin/fine cut. I hung around College of the Redwoods (Mendocino)...

    Re: Copal 0 shutter speed accuracy

    info@paepke-fototechnik.de

    This place is in Dusseldorf, Germany and they may take on your shutter or perhaps point you at the right direction (you could send the shutter).

    Re: A large-format laugh from Matt Marrash

    At that speed, he should have been ready to take a shot around midnight. Glad it was all for fun or he'd need a lens with some serious speed....even F0.95 would be way too slow.
