  1. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    That looks great, nice job David!
  2. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    I think I know what you're saying. The corner triangular bits are skewed, the diagonals (hypotenuse) should be equal in length which make the unfolded pleats different depths. This was workable on my...
  3. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    Yeah, after pressed for some time, the bellows will take its shape. But I think the corner folding in the algorithm could be improved. I'll have to revisit this some time. Hope your camera will be...
  4. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    That looks good from here, David. Does it fold and fit ok? What thickness card and material did you use?

    Re: Carrying case for Graflex Series D 4X5

    A bit on the pricey side, but I would recommend this soft padded case from Lightware. Has extra room for several film holders, Grafmatics or bag mags. I don't have the shoulder strap on mine, but the...
  6. Re: Cambo TWR 54 - 4x5 Twin Lens Reflex (like Gowlandflex) Question...

    Hi Ed, thanks for sharing the pics, that looks great! I think a calibrated TLR like yours would be the best way to ensure you can nail the focus at F2.8 for handheld candids. Does the cam work well...
  7. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    Any graphics/print shop with a large format plotter could do it. A large flatbed printer that can print directly on the card stock will be even better. I can't tell what the overall print size will...
  8. Re: Can you make yourself a 11x14 view camera bellow?

    I wrote a parametric unfolding program that generates a lasercut template for chamfered bellows. The input parameters are front and back X and Y dimensions, maximum extension, corner chamfer...

    A TLR with two Xenotar 150mm will be an amazing camera, would love to see it when it's completed. I assume the taking lens is in Compur 2 or Compur/Copal 3 and the viewing lens in barrel? I mounted a...

    Re: Curiosities, unusual LF cameras?

    Cheers Jac. To date, I think I've exposed about 200 sheets of film with the focal plane shutter. As you're probably aware, it's the self-capping double-curtain type with adjustable slit and single...

    Thanks guys, the helical mount (Fotoman?) may be difficult to source, and calibrating focus to match the scale was slightly tricky. The image is sensationally wide with moderate fall off, but it...

    I would love to find a copy too, the stills are from the website about the film :http://www.gandolfi-film.co.uk/images.html.
  18. Re: Gandolfi: pilgrimmage to the sites of the Gandolfi workshops

    I think they also used the upper storey of the back house as part of the workshop as shown in these stills from Ken Griffith's film of Thomas doing the brasswork.

    Re: 8x10 at the Golden Globes

    I think the man in the orange vest is Massimo Vitali, whose best known work is of crowds from a high vantage point. That is probably his 8x10 Phillips Compact II.
