    Dimensioned images for Calumet 8x10 compendium camera mount??

    Good day the list.

    I am researching the design of the compendium mount for the Calumet C-1 8x10 cameras both Green and Black versions. I have an image of one such mount but no dimensions. Now I can likely create those by comparing against known items in the same image but I would vastly prefer proper real dimensions.

    There is an existing thread (old thread) in this forum on this but the images have stale dated and are no longer present.

    Also, the reason I need these is that I have a compendium and a C-1 camera, in fact several of these and each need the mount!

    I am planning on machining a small batch of these some time in the future. Once I get this project done I likely will look at making mounts for these cameras to allow exiting compendiums to be used.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi John. While that shows the camera mount I believe that is for the C-400 not the 8x10.

    I could be wrong but I believe I read that thread before.

    Thank you

    Do you have any dimensions for the camera mount piece?

    Thank you
