    Thanks to everyone who had a look at my camera builds. Weather you have commented or not.

    Yes - these were fun. And a few local photographers here is Saint Louis, Missouri are seriously looking into making photographs from Paper Negatives. Two want me to build one for them. I do not know about doing that, as I feel they are so easy to build, why don't they do the build theirselves? Perhaps they are not as handy as I am - and or - do not have the tools. These cameras can be built with very simple tools. All that it takes is a little effort and time.

    ;-)

    Risking public outcry, I wanted to share a camera I just finished. My goal was To make a small and lightweight 6x12/65mm camera for travel. Notes about the project are on my blog, http://dirkfletcher.blogspot.com and other completed projects are on my Flickr, https://www.flickr.com/photos/dirkfletcher/albums

    Nice solution for getting a lightweight panoramic camera.

    A simple 8×10 Back for a Sinar F, mounted to a (slightly flimsy) aux standard. Including bellows, which are slightly stiff but working. The ground glass is rather ground acryllic, and the spring back is »hair tied«.

    Did you use one of those whole page Fresnel lenses for the GG. From the photo it looks like a Fresnel.

    Yes, forgot to mention it. It’s a cheap reading aid simpy taped to the ground glass.

    Nicely done! I've thought about making an 8x10 and 14x17 format change kits for my Sinar P, even bought some aluminum pieces but haven't progressed from there.
