    2nd prototype but ufortunately, not the last ...






    This is a project I've been working on for over an year. I was hoping this was the final version, but in testing it turned out that some changes need to be made. So there will be a third prototype

    SV, I love the brass hardware and wooden handle knobs. Looks great, hope that you get all the kinks worked out.

    My meager effort at making a 4x5/6x12 P+S. Have no previous experience with LF/MF at all. And it been 10 years since I last shot film. So this will Proove to be exciting.

    Built around a Graflok back. Attached to a frame, which has a subframe to the front on to which the lens box slides, friction mounted. This allows me to adapt another lens box for when I will be using a sliding DSLR adapter back (in future) Lens box front has a Linhof to Deardoff 6x6 adapter. Linhof lens board has a helicoid mounted to it, on which a Fujinon SW 90/f8 in a Copal 0 is attached. Will be using a 6x12 back om it from the outset.

    Looks good. Is there a reason for having the viewfinder offset from the top of the body?

    Ezzie, how do you find the quality of the viewfinder?

    Hi and thanks.

    The reason for the viewfinder being somewhat elevated and drawn back from the body is so my cheek doesn´t bump into the rather large and sharp edged DAYI 6x12 back. I´ve overdone it somewhat, so I´m on the lookout for a fixture more suiting, or I´ll shape one out of wood. The advantage of the arm on which it sits now is that it can be persuaded into different angles to compensate for parallax.

    The viewfinder is big and clear, but not without distortion. Build quality is solid. The glass front protection cover got cracked in shipping, and will need replacing - no big deal.

    I´ve yet to take pictures with it, I don´t even have film I don´t have a darkroom either so I´ll have send away for processing, the turnaround will take a while. Slow photography getting even slower.

    EDIT: Comments deleted - it isn't the same as the one I bought.
