    Re: Building a 4x5

    Okay, update time

    I started 3D printing parts to test fit them, so here's the film back (not fully built out to save time). The tolerences were too tight so the film holder didn't fit in nicely at...

    Re: Building a 4x5

    I've been quiet for a while, but I haven't stopped work on the camera, I've just gone through a set of job interviews which have taken up my focus for the past week or so.

    Re: Building a 4x5

    What are some different camera back ideas that people have had success with? I see this one https://apenasimagens.com/en/build-your-4x5-camera-back/ isn't too complex, but as for other ideas, what...

    Re: Building a 4x5

    I'm using all the tools I have at my disposal to make the best first camera I can. My brother (who has absolutely no interest in cameras) is helping me through this build because he freelances in...

    Re: Building a 4x5

    Very interesting stuff John. I'll explore larger sized front bellows. My only thoughs against it are in terms of compression, as this is a camera I will want to take put into the field, with...

    Re: Building a 4x5

    I agree that there are cameras at good prices but the camera I want vs the camera I can afford are very different and building allows me to get a camera that does what I want it to do in an...

    Re: Building a 4x5

    I'll try and accommodate for that. Do you think that a 3 3/4" lens board would provide enough room? I'll use that as a starting point because it's similar to what the intrepid uses

    Re: Building a 4x5

    I see. The longest lens I own (and will probably ever use) is a 210mm fujinon. This build will be predominantly for landscapes as I have a beautiful (but heavy) Cambo that works extremely well for...

    Building a 4x5

    Hello everybody.

    I'm starting to design a 4x5 field camera (with strong inspiration from the Intrepid 4x5) using CNC'd wood and aluminum, and before I begin I had a few questions that I can't find...

    Hello everyone

    I recently entered the world of LF and picked up my second lens, a 135mm Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar, however the Synchro-Compur P shutter it is mounted on doesn't function. I've...
