    Kangrinpoche Cosmos Circle 4x5 camera upgrade

    I just noticed a few days ago that Kangrinpoche has finally gotten around to launching their camera that was first discussed at the beginning of this thread 5 years ago albeit on Kickstarter. If you are interested, here’s the link. I’m not affiliated with the team but I have always felt it would be nice to have a lightweight option for those days when I want to travel light. I am a backer.

    As the thread suggests, this is not new - they have been selling this camera on eBay in various configurations for quite some time now. Don't know how a Kickstarter campaign is justified at this point.

    UPDATE: See below - the Kickstarter is to finance a range of upgrades to the camera design and production.

    Since skinkfoto refused to answer my question if his plates are M22 i dont know if his 3 types of plates(pinhole, zonesieve, photonsieve) can be attached to the 18 shutter. he has a lens for copal 0. I call that rather an adapter.
    cosmos circle does not deliver naked adapters(where pinholeplate is factory-mounted. they are of highquality. when i killed one unfortunately(i have a duplicate 0.35mm) i removed everything to have a naked adapter. there i mounted old brass 18mm Reality So Subtle plate. Was not that easy since it will wobble inside when not done properly. new version is flat and nonmetall(plastic or something like that see website, 20mm. set of 5 cost 20 euro. hope he can also deliver 0.35mm later.
    Remember-i already posted that: Eighteen Degrees Pinhole Shutter by Cosmos Circle can expose multiples of 1/6(doesnt matter which release cable or pneumatic)- i measure with photoplug shutter-tester. one must only press it quickly. triggering the shutter manually not advised.
    Now i hope 3S-KR will come back here and tell us where to buy more shutters and plates. i cant find second seller who had these. have big problems navigating his shop 3s-krpc. i cant reach it only when i have link. which i have stored. sometimes its working sometimes not. tried everything. and search cannot find the seller 3s-krpc

    NB: I have a concept for shutter- filteradapter. unfortunately nobody has the needed brass-adapter in order to be soldered to the surface. details later. so aluminium-adapter must be "glued" to. a used tape for the image. be aware brass and aluminium-adapter cannot be joined. brass to alufilter working. brass-adapter by heliopan. there are some alternative sellers but heliopan has the the biggest range. see their price-sheet. heliopan.de
    I'm sorry that my English is not very good. I can only read your words through the translation software, but I still failed to understand your meaning correctly.

    Thank you for your attention

    To launch the Kickstarter campaign, we wanted to make a few accessories that would give Cosmos Circle even more variation. Now the project is in progress, please friends help and support.

    The link is here:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...=project_build

    The return on the project is very, very, very good.

    Thank you very much!

    Thank you for your attention.

    Some of the accessories we sell on eBay are 3D-printed, not mass-produced. Now we are crowdfunding, just preparing to produce molds and mass-produce these accessories.

    These do not violate the requirements of a crowdfunding campaign.

    thanks

    I've moved these posts to a Kickstarter thread. Please read the full description on the Kickstarter campaign page - they provide details about what is new.

    Their pinhole camera on ebay is very, very tempting...
