    Yep,

    One trade off for sure ... but the good thing is they are as rigid and repeatable/accurate as anything out there - of course you'd have to design the rest of the camera to the same spec to retain that.

    up to you - there are larger, heavier and pointier things in my camera arsenal than a linear bearing...

    Try working in cine

    Or fishing, or kites or ...

    ok, but I'm used to the pointiest thing on my person being my elbows - so it best for everyone if I stay streamlined

    Grafinar

    I have been reading in this forum for a long time now. Time to show something. I am building a portrait camera around a Leitz Hektor 200/2.5 projector lens. The shutter box is a Speed Graflex of smaller format that i bought without ground glass, stuck shutter and rotten bellows very cheap. I serviced the shutter. The bellows and the international back come from Sinar. I still have to construct a bed and focusing mechanism and do some painting :-) But it will be cool. Due to the fast lens the ground glass is as bright as my led-tv. It is easy to switch the Back from horizontal to vertikal and with 36cm of bellows draw you can shoot very tight. The dof will be extremely shallow. I think, this ugly guy will produce a really special look.

    regards,
    Wasti

    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

    Do modifications count here?

    If so, here is my 10x8" Tachyhara with Sinar shutter, which now means justifying another Sinar Shutter cable so I don't end up miles from home with the shutter in one kit and the cable rlse in another, it could happen
