    Steve.
    Yes, I somehow am losing it, I think my instruction booklet for my mamiya 7 35mm pano insert was for the mamiya 6 and I'm just recalling the 2:1 ratio mentioned in the booklet for the 6 even though I have a 7, I think that's where my confusion lies.

    In other news, here's a mod for a 70mm daylight tank for 15 feet of film at a time...



    Yup, that's a single roll of film hanging in the shower...

    The tank has a bit of light leak, if anyone has a REAL daylight tank I'll buy! Lol

    Even in practice nothing is standard anyway, my 6x12 Holga is 50mm x 120mm, the DaYi roll back is 56mm x 115mm.....

    And isn't 6x12 the standard medium format panorama anyway? Just as 24mm x 64mm is the standard 135 format pano? Or is the medium formst 6x17 for visual reasons? I forget now... Haha all I know is scanners that scan pano film strips only accommodate for 6x12.

    My Mamiya 7 has a "true panoramic" 35mm insert that creates the 64mm wide x 24mm high image on 35mm film, that's why I assumed 6x12 was pano since its the same proportions. Or is it? I'm tired and my brain doesn't want to do the math ratio (even if I know it's simple) Gnight for now, feel free to respond with mockery... Lol

    Same 6x17 as before. But now with modified finder mask and a level. Also done up cosmetically. And this time I put a little effort in taking a good picture of it.

    Nice.

    What are you using for lens board clips?

    I 'm amazed at many of these home built cam's. How do you determine the film advance distance for roll film designs?
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Here are my two modified Nikon Fs. The left hand one has had the mirror box removed and has a leica thread mount. It is used with an external viewfinder with my 15mm Heliar. It is entirely successful and is quieter than my Bessa L. The right hand one is being converted to coupled rangefinder. The rangefinder that I am using is from a Konica Auto S3. I hope to finish it soon.

    Well all the Cosina made rangefinder cameras Bessa, Zeiss Ikon, Epson etc are based on an SLR with the mirror box removed, and the Zenit C is a Leica copy rangefinder body witha mirror box so it's not an unknown concept After all the Nikon F isn't that different to the Nikon SP.

    So interesting projects good luck.

    Thanks Ian, when I was first thinking about doing it I asked for suggestions on a couple of other forums and the consensus was that I was daft to try.
    I have also modified Nikon Photomic prisms by removing all the electrics, cutting down the chassis and making a new top to produce my own version of a standard prism for a cost of £20 instead of £120 that they sell for. As you can see they are not as pretty as the Nikon original but they do the job.

    That's quite often all the encouragement I need!
