    4x5" or 9x12cm Camera Back - DIY

    I always believed that this would be a high precision work. Impossible to be done at home, with manual tools. But I tried and it worked very well. I am still surprised how easy it was. So I am sharing here the whole process with you. If you are in need of a camera back like that, give it a try. I think it is specially useful for beginners and school projects like pinholes and the like. Here is the link:

    I've made a few backs without GG for pinhole and fixed focus cameras recently, with similar design and results for the film holders. Am about to embark on 2 backs with GG (1 4x5 and 1 8x10). I will definitely keep you page bookmarked! Thanks!
