    Thanks for posting this. Had no idea. I see he’s in Longueil, which is just south of Montreal.

    Good to know about this. The map below shows where Longeuil is in relation to Montréal. The red line at the bottom is the Québec/New York State border.

    I've met Eric a number of times at the local camera shows, he's a nice guy. Bought a lot more stuff from him than I ever sold to him. He has a day job, this is a hobby, and he seems to have gotten into it specifically to pursue his search for the perfect camera. His first was a fixed focus point&shoot 8x10 for a SA120 IIRC, that was bolted together with slotted tracks, with foamcore (?) bellows. He used to have a pic of it on his photography website.

    I would have no problem buying from him again, if I weren't a budding machinist myself. You never know what you can or can't make until you try.
