How do I get on the list to order one?
I don't know if I want to build another one but if anyone wants the drawings (and CNC files) let me know by PM.

I'm shooting Fuji Reala with a Mamiya C330F because it's my easiest camera to operate with gloves on in the subzero weather we are having at the moment.

Broke out my Bronica-S w/ some Ilford Delta 400. It's a wonderful camera and keeps on going and going!

I've got a couple of Rolleicord IIb or Model 3 - Model K3 - 541 that I've been exercising lately.
During the cold weather I keep the camera I'm using inside my coat to keep it warm!

Circa 1895 Rochester Optical Co. "Standard" 6.5x8.5" view camera with its original 300mm Rapid Rectilinear lens, 4x5 reducing back (until the 6.5x8.5" film I ordered arrives.)
This was a first run after spending a bit of time tuning up the camera for use. Upon viewing images in the field through the lens for the first time, I can see one reason why contact printing was the norm in those days. Compared to modern optics, this particular lens is unsharp at any speed. Wide open, I could find no sharp parts of the image anywhere. With an f/16 waterhouse stop, I could see enough edge sharpness to focus the camera, but it was nowhere near as sharp as a modern lens. Go figure. I plan to use this camera primarily for portraits, so extreme sharpness is not required. It will be interesting to see images focused at a closer range. I suspect there's a "sweet spot" there somewhere. Or not.
The adventure continues.

This week I'm shooting with a Bronica ETR and a 50mm f2.8 Zenzanon MC to test out a 35mm panoramic back (Bronica 135 W) I won on eBay. I've put 2 rolls through it so far with one more test roll tomorrow. First, before I even took a shot, the leather that covers the screw that holds on the manual film advance lever fell off as did the screw. I screwed it back on and it seems okay. Then, the pin you push in that allows you to rewind the film fell off and is lost. I've been using a paperclip in lieu of the original pin. With the first two rolls I'm getting several double exposed frames. But the spacing between frames is near perfect and the few good images are nice and sharp. The 3rd roll I shoot tomorrow will be with a different ETR body and then I'll know where the problem lies. The eBay seller claims to never have had a problem with this film back..... of course.

Today I will shoot a testrolls in my Kowa super 66. See if it works ok. But eh I kinda forgot what kind of film I put in....Not too smart but I have a fairly dark room in which i can check it out.
O wait I did have the wrapper still laying around. It is loaded with Agf Rsx 100 from 2000.
