    Greetings from Poland

    Hello everybody.
    My name's Wojtek and I'm from Poland.
    I'm into photography for a while now,some two years ago I went back to analogue.
    I started developing my own films (b&w so far) and printing pictures in my bathroom-cum-darkroom.
    I got addicted to formats larger than standard 35mm,mostly 6x6 (I use Mamiya C220 Pro for medium size) and recently 4x5.
    I built my very first LF camera last x-mas when i had some spare time.
    It's a field type camera,not a perfect one maybe,but has all the movements one would expect from LF camera.
    Here are some pictures of the camera:

    I will probably have a lot of questions to more experienced users especially regarding LF and ULF lenses,as I'm planning on building something like 8x10.
    Ok,I think that's about it for now so ciao!

    Dzień dobry, Wojtek.
    That's a nice home-made camera, I'd be very interested to see your 8x10.
