    In our defense, we're using it as a noun, not company name (and yes, it is still incorrect).

    The Lego website even has a whole page pointing this out.

    finally got around to making an 8x10
    the frond is made from the FP shutter of a 3x4 speed graphic and it has a sprung rotating back

    all in it weighs about 3.5kg, but almost half of that is the lens, so it's pretty transportable.

    Impressive. And the bellows probably match the curtains.

    I like how the knobs for the standards appear to be wooden? Nice touch.

    yeah, just a simple piece of pine with threaded bar screwed and glued in.
    it was easier and quicker to just make them with wood that was lying around than buy some, and then fit everything around them

    It's still not quite finished, but today, my 5x4 folding field camera exposed its first two sheets of film.

    After a couple of false starts when I didn't like what I was building and I started again, this has been in progress for a couple of years. It still needs a few things before I can consider it finished.

    Thanks. I'm pleased with it.

    I was also pleasantly surprised when I processed the film and actually had images without any evidence of light leaks. When I made my 6x12 camera, the first two films came out completely black!
