    And here is another place where you might find some help: www.f295.org

    It might be easier to give you some help if you will give us some more information about what you are going for.

    ciao

    I want built a Camera where as the negative I will use the photographic paper (or normal negativ 10x15cm). To photograph of architecture, the landscape and abstraction.
    And I want built Pinhole Cap for my Ricoh KR-10x.

    Used 4x5 film holders are quite common on eBay. Not sure how eBay might work in Poland but used holders of reasonable quality should be $10US or less.

    Browse at www.f295.org and you will see how some people are using cigar boxes as the camera body. Others build a 5 sided box and the film holder becomes the 6th side.

    Keeping the film holder attached to the camera can be as simple as rubber bands (elastic bands).

    To design your own, start with the film holder and measure pieces to make a 5 sided box. Look closely at how the film holder is constructed so you can take advantage of its shape and light-trap features.

    It would be best to use a grade 2 paper for negatives, multi grade paper is about 3 and quite contrasy.
