    Nice. The fact that we can get lenses with built in shutters and film holders with built in dark slides means that we can get great results with the most simple of cameras, as your foam core example shows. All we really need is a box to keep the darkness in with a lens at one end and the film holder at the other.

    This makes it easy for any of us to make a camera and is doesn't matter if we are master craftsmen or bodgers with gaffer tape!

    Hehe, I love that wording. All the people who try to keep the light out, probably understood something wrong

    I built a few boxes myself and it wasn't easy to collect enough darkness, put it inside and then seal the whole thing. Most of these boxes have a hole insted of a lens, though. This one's an old Kiev magazine (the camera was broken beyond repair) with with a 35mm/175 pinhole. And no, I didn't throw it into a mirror to test its sturdiness

    My plywood/gaffers tape masterpiece. This version had a wax-paper
    ground glass!

    The image was at f32 and the lens didn't quite cover. I'm on the lookout
    for a proper lens but am not ready to spend $500! I like the idea of a cheap
    russian process lens like the Industar 37, and a Packard shutter...

    Or 260/9 Konica Hexanon GRII, if you like wider view. I found mine dirt cheap, EUR35 (~US$50). Hard to beat price/performance.

    New 6x17 pano camera

    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    that thing looks great!!

    I thought I'd add a couple shots of my newly finished creation.

    it takes a 6x9 back and 3x4 polaroid film back and has tilt/swing, a little lift but not shift. I made it entirely out of recycled and scavenged parts, but the lens board was made by a collagist friend of mine.

    the runners need redesigning and I could do with a lens with a bit more coverage for full movements, but beggars can't be choosers.

    this is my first full build so be nice
