    I'd like a camera like that. Always on the lookout for a Cambo Wide but around here they turn up rarely, often in bad condition and way over my budget. But if you have Arca plates at 2 sides, then why a rotating back? It looks like it would be easier to turn the camera than turn the back.

    Once bought a Sinar Zoom thinking about such a camera. It still sits in the cupboard after 10 years. Got any photos of your camera?

    Lol, it took longer for someone to point the rotating back side grip. I actually made a couple grips while I was working on this camera but both seems too big and weren't a good overall fit to how the camera was turning out. I had been wanting to try the half pipe with an arca plate for a while and it was too perfect for this camera. I had already mounted the lens at that point, I had tried a non-rotating back but the back focus was much different, so you have options I guess.

    Would be grateful for any information, thanks
    Look at RAFCamera on eBay, you should be able to find just about everything needed to build camera.
