    interesting cameras--- he used a HELL of a lot of aluminum to get to the cone shape though. Poor machining time use. Could have made a pyramid of plate and made it faster, easier, and with better coverage.

    I really like the black carbon ones. Remind me of things of the future back in the 50's.
    Jeff Searust, I guess he's a photographer first, not an engineer. Your right, a fabricated aluminum body would be faster and easier to make. I assume though, that the aluminum was scrap, so it really doesn't matter. In any case, they are really unique looking cameras.
