    Re: Show off your ULF camera

    This is my ULF project camera - it's an 11x14 camera with autofocus. I use a TOF sensor right now but am working on incorporating an intel realsense depth camera. You can still manually focus as it has a ground glass with projection TV fresnel also.

    The discussion about a ULF camera for digital stitching has been moved to its own thread in the Lounge:

    That looks incredible. Now you just need auto-swings and tilts as well

    Wonderful!

    I see you specced heavy duty Linhof, I have those parts

    I have been dreaming and talking about the same idea on this forum for a while

    You look ready!

    Congratulations!

    Thanks, and yes the front standard is from a Linhof 8x10 Kardan Color which has the gearing for rise /fall so I may motorize that in the future. For now I want to take some portraits with it first and get the eye focus working with the Realsense 3D camera working.

    Brilliant actually for an ULF used in portraiture - so long as the eye-focus feature continues to work up to the time of actual exposure!

    Re: Show off your ULF camera

    After over a year of having home made bellows siting in the house, i finally got the chance to find a working space.

    The bellows interior are 36 x 36 CM ( aprox 14 x 14 inches). The original idea was to make a studio 14 x17 camera and shoot x-ray film and then collodion.

    I though: well, there is not THAT much difference on going through all of this and end up maybe with a 16 x20. So i did.

    The main issue was the bellows being smaller and producing shadow into the focusing glass/film. So i decided to make it with a bigger box to fit 16x20 and separated the back.

    The other issue was that if i wanted to use longer lenses, meant more bellows, and so the shadow projection on the glass became tighter.

    So i ended up going with a mix of systems: i have 1 box ( back) sliding inside of each other, so that i can separate the back even more if i want to use lets say my 900mm lens.

    SO far, the camera opens around 55 inches ( bellows + sliding back fully extended).

    Its looking not so good, but im making it myself and im having so much fun with it!!! I hope you guys enjoy the photos.

    More updates coming soon.

    A wonderful week to everybody!

    Re: Show off your ULF camera

    Very good experimenting!

    I fully support your project, perhaps because I have been there, done that

    We learn by doing!

    I am still working on my 14X17

    I also have a 900mm lens, and made a nose cone extension for a 790mm

    Here is how I made a film holder

    Re: Show off your ULF camera

    Ohhh yeah. Looks great. And i remember seeing one of you many many posts about that 14x17. Thanks for the input.

    Actually o forgot to take pictures of it, but i bought a picture frame of 40x50 cm ( 16x20 inches) and added some stuff. Honestly, of the whole building process, the film holder is the one i thought it was going to be the hardest and turned out to be the best looking and functional overall, so far hahaha.

    I will keep all of you guys updated!
