looks like a good idea to be sure, but I imagine 'twould have to stay at full length...
One trade off for sure ... but the good thing is they are as rigid and repeatable/accurate as anything out there - of course you'd have to design the rest of the camera to the same spec to retain that.
hmm, not sure the trade off is worth it tho' you know.
walking through a crowd, wouldn't want to take someone's eye out like
up to you - there are larger, heavier and pointier things in my camera arsenal than a linear bearing...
Try working in cine
Or fishing, or kites or ...
ok, but I'm used to the pointiest thing on my person being my elbows - so it best for everyone if I stay streamlined
I have been reading in this forum for a long time now. Time to show something. I am building a portrait camera around a Leitz Hektor 200/2.5 projector lens. The shutter box is a Speed Graflex of smaller format that i bought without ground glass, stuck shutter and rotten bellows very cheap. I serviced the shutter. The bellows and the international back come from Sinar. I still have to construct a bed and focusing mechanism and do some painting But it will be cool. Due to the fast lens the ground glass is as bright as my led-tv. It is easy to switch the Back from horizontal to vertikal and with 36cm of bellows draw you can shoot very tight. The dof will be extremely shallow. I think, this ugly guy will produce a really special look.
coolest bellows I've ever seen!
Do modifications count here?
If so, here is my 10x8" Tachyhara with Sinar shutter, which now means justifying another Sinar Shutter cable so I don't end up miles from home with the shutter in one kit and the cable rlse in another, it could happen
and Wasti, what are you going to mount that thing on?
looks good tho'
on a simple wood board and a solid tripod
cool, any shoots taken with it yet?
