    Re: 11x14 camera build attempt - Questions

    Thanks once again everyone. I wanted to wait until everything was done (final hardware, custom back springs, red anodized aluminum, etc.) to post another update but last night's shenanigans are too exciting not to share.

    So, the camera did extremely well with the light leak tests. I basically had no light leaks other than the expected area where the film holder needed to sit flat on the back. I knew that the plywood was not 100% flat and would need something. To fix this, I simply glued a layer of felt cloth which resolved all light leaks. The camera did extremely well under studio lights but true test will be when I shoot with it in full sunlight. Anyways, here are the pictures that are way more exciting than anything I can say at this point.

    1st Setup


    And.. 1st Negative!


    Under more light to show the camera itself after sanding. Shows lens board locking plates.


    Using strong tape as temporary solution to hold the back and ground glass frame. Back is attached in the wrong direction in this photo which I must have done by accident after removing the film holder.

    And some more to show the flexibility of the camera.

    Minimum Bellows


    Maximum Bellows - Not pushing the bellows but camera can do 2-3 inches more.


    Snake


    Rear tilt

    It folds I need to do some fine tuning on the front standard frame so it folds perfectly flat. It's just so slightly off right now.
