    On a folder.
    Seems quite straight forward to me.
    Get the window into the back at the correct space.Ensure it is light tight.
    Make a frame out of suitable material.Fit to camera so film stays flat.
    Done.
    But what about the viewfinder?
    Guess framing? This could go well with guessing exposure:D
    Or is there a formula to use for lines.
    Have i missed anything obvious?
