    4x5 Monorail View Camera Build

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been building a LF camera for a few months now (following Jon Grepstad's book http://home.online.no/~gjon/depth.htm ) and it's nearly done. I've attached a photo I took with the camera and one photo of the camera from a few days ago. If you'd like to see more there's an album on flickr showing most of the build https://www.flickr.com/photos/454798...57653274796024 .

    This is really cool - well done.
    The flickr link doesn't work for me, but I like what I can see here.
    Thanks for sharing

    Ahh - that's better.
    Good job
    Tom

    PS - what material did you use for your bellows - which look great by the way.

    Nicely done Carl!

    If you would like to add any (or all) of the build pictures to the "Building My Own Camera" group on Flickr they would be welcome. (I see you put a few on already, more is... Well, more!)
