So I started the construction on my first camera ever. It is a 4x5 field camera. I'm building it around an old Schneider lens that I picked up for a steal on eBay. Here is the link to my blog: http://tomasyoung.blogspot.com/2010/05/view-camera-progress.html I only have most of the front standard made. I'm currently working on the brass hardware for the movements on front. Please ask questions, give me comments or critiques. I'd love to hear what you all have to say.
