    Bob, most DIY roll film cameras use the film counter numbers imprinted on the backing paper, and a hole with a sliding cover to see the number as it come around. The position of the hole depends on weather your shoot 6x45, 6x6 or 6x9. If you want to shoot 6x7 your out of luck..

    So how would the advance distance be figured for example the 6x17 below? Guess I could ask the builder, eh?
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    use frame number 1 - 3 - 5 - 7 on the 6x9 frame counters. My counter hole for a 6x17 is in the middle of the camera. 2 6x9 frames leave a nice space between images.

    On my 6x14 I use the Graflex film back counter plus an individual add on turning angle of the knob, which I have established beforehand (and put on a small table on the camera). So frame 2 is at counter position 2 plus 1 and 1/4 turns of the knob, frame 3 is at counter position 4 plus half a turn, and so on. To make this more accurate, I have "engraved" a kind of a windscale on the knob.

    Regards,

    Sven

    Yeah, this would be exciting to me. The metal pieces that hold the lens board onto my Speed Graphic have gone walkabout. In addition, the bottom piece for the same on my Burke & James. I'm taping boards to my cameras. Heh.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    DIY 8 X 10 camera complete

    Finished my first home built camera this morning, using two store bought pieces from Skink (the pinhole and the tripod socket). Now if I can just complete the next two weeks of school and spend a little time with the camera. Plan a project next semester with this camera and making contact Ziatype prints and perhaps some others. It was a fun project with some help from folks here at APUG. John Goodman supplied the light seal material. Bill Barber
