    Re: DIY 4x5 Point and Shoot

    Hello Hugo,

    Given how light this camera is, I can get away with a pretty light carbon-fiber tripod.

    Teak is a lovely wood to work with. As is rosewood, which I plan to use for my next camera build.

    Snapped this pic the other day. Velvia 100 at f/16, 1/60s. Handheld.

    Lens still needs some shimming...but plenty of DOF.

    I guess with a freezer chock-full of Acros-100, I hadn't considered alternatives.

    What exactly are the objections to capturing subjects unawares given that we're constantly being monitored?

    I took this shot the other day....On tripod, Acros 100, Dev-D76. 120mm, f/32

    The pic appears sharp corner-to-corner. The lens also seems to be perfectly parallel to the film plane.

    Re: DIY 4x5 Point and Shoot

    The viewfinder is made by Voigtlander.

    The camera is fixed at infinity. The rangefinder is used to confirm near-field which can be as close as 4-meters depending on f-stop.

    I think I may try to use a rod guard and see if I can build a light trap into the cap. Plenty of depth to accommodate the required disks. It then comes down to suitable adhesives.
