    Hi Jim
    great looking camera! One question as I am in the process of making one myself- where did you source the rear hinge hardware and back-tilt pieces?
    thx and great job!

    Eric, nice to hear you are building your own. The tilt back pieces can be made from aluminum and then anodized. In my case I have some nice connections with Chamonix cameras and I was able to get the parts from them. They do not sell these parts but I have friends in the right places. The hinges are the part that is the hardest to source here. I believe Chamonix makes these specifically for their cameras. Look up Dick Phillips cameras and see the hinges he uses. Look at several cameras and you will find a work around.
