    Well, you've outsourced me

    Best I can suggest in the absense of you building anything (where you will learn the most) - is to simply read these forums, this thread in particular, start from the beginning and work your way to here.

    My real hope is that I'll plant the seed (or virus if you prefer) into the brain of some aspiring camera builder here, and they'll be so overwhelmed by it that they must build a color-camera. Meanwhile, I just sit back and reap the benefits!



    hahaha, thanks for your help nick.

    Here's the latest kitten out of my stable ...





    That's the last of the brass and cherry. Have to find more.

    Slow down. You're making more than your fair share of cameras!


    I like the combination of that bellows colour and the cherry. I also like your lens board clamps. They look easier to use than the common diagonally sliding plate.

    looks great.

    like Steve says, great colour combination.
    what did you use for the rail? I've been thinking about using an old tripod leg and it looks like you've used something similar.

    is it stable?

    Now I'm looking at the bellows again I'm wondering if they are actually that colour or is it just a reflection of light?

    It is a tripod leg, from a Cobra Eclipse. It's actually quite smooth and rigid, though there may be higher quality legs around.

    It's bottle green acetate, Steve, so a little difficult to photograph accurately. In some lights it has quite a sheen to it.

    Hey, Steve, if you want square section aluminum to use for a rail 1" x 1" 80/20 brand t-slotted extrusion may do for you. I use it for longer than standard rails for my little Cambo; Cambo SCs use a 1" x 1" rail -- original issue is hollow and has a spring-loaded stop at each end -- and the standards go on 1" x 1" 80/20. I used a piece of 1.5" x 1.5" 80/20 t-slotted extrusion as a base for my tandem Graphic.

    I have no idea who sells the stuff in the UK. I got my 1.5" x 1.5" as scrap from http://www.kkdepot.com/product.asp?key=241 , got the 1" x 1" from 80/20 via Amazon. I don't mean to steer you only towards 80/20, there are other manufacturers of t-slotted extrusion.

    often thought linear bearings would make a very sturdy rail:

    thats just the first one I found - I bet there are much better suited versions out there... I know some commerical cameras already use them (a field camera if I recal)
