    A perfect match for someone who already has a Gowlandflex 8x10 TLR, I'm sure. :wink:

    Hey, I've made a mount so that I can use my 8x10" Gowland PocketView on a pistol grip with a 120mm lens. It's kind of in between a Hobo and a Sinar Handy. It has two focus positions--8 ft. and infinity. I just need to figure out a viewfinder for it.

    Put a .8mm pinhole on that puppy and you have a great big, heavy, pinhole camera.
    Based on calcs at mrpinhole.com

    .8mm pinhole at 14.25" focal length gives an image circle of 27".
    fstop is ~452
    angle of view about 55degrees.(film dimensions 10.5 x 10.5 = 14.85)
    iso 100 sunny day exposure is 8seconds.

    Isn't it really a 10x10 handheld camera?

    Maybe you could make a rollfilm back for it and shoot 9 1/2" aerial film?
