    4x5 wide camera with removable lens and focusing helical for 6x12 use.

    Recently finished a 65mm 4x5 wide camera based on the WillTravel 3D printable camera. I replaced his bungie loaded ground glass back with a non ground glass spring style back that makes it easier to unload and reload with one hand. I replaced the grip with a smaller grip that keeps the camera smaller to fit in a bag better and lastly I removed his 3D printed helical and replaced it with a flange that allows the same lens and helical combination to be removed and fitted to my 6x12 camera.
