    What are you kidding? I think that you have done a wonderful thing here. I mean think about it. Does sinar or Linhoff or Horseman or ebony make an eyeball camera? Why no they don't. Take a bow man, you have won the 2005 award for coloring outside the lines. I applaud your creativity, your conviction and most of all the amazing amount of courage it takes to show the world what you have done knowing full well that some may scoff and poo poo such avant-guard adventures into camera modification.

    I say Yeah!

    RE: Exposure Control Holga

    Regarding focus, at this point you might consider taking the shutter (with the Holga lens) off and putting it on an old folder. That is assuming that it's the lens aberrations that you love about the Holga and not the light leaks

    Great idea! I never thought of that. I keep conceiving of the Holga body as just a film transport mechanism...I can't believe it never ocurred to me to replace it altogether...

    Pinhole camera

    I made this camera to test out my box jointing skills. I'm trying to design a 4x5 field camera now.

    Nicely done !! Simple and functional - I love it. Have you tried taking any pictures yet?

    cheers

    I have, but it had a light leak, so part of it is fogged. If it weren't fogged, the image would have been very sharp. I'll post a scan as soon as I have a chance to take another and actually scan it. My light leak turned out to be a gap in the seal I put between the holder and the camera.

    For the cine people here

    An 'intervalometer' for a 16mm Bolex - a device used to drive cine cameras single shot capabilities periodically - this one also has the ability to set the amount of time the shutter is open during the cycle period - ie. if its f.p.s was 0.1 (1 frame every 10 seconds) I could adjust the shutter to be open for any fraction of that 10 seconds (within certain a range)

    Cine people might find this snippet from an email I sent a friend recently helpful:

    ... adjustable duty cycle from ~%5- %95 (like shutter angle being 18deg - 342deg) with period anywhere from ~1.5 secs - whatever time you wish (ie. years+) ...

    When the period is 1.5secs the shutter angle is effectively set at %50 on the T setting or very low on I (or the other way round cant remember which) - the longer the period the closer you can get the duty cycle (shutter angle) to %100

    Its running using discrete logic timers and ripple counters (556, CMOS 4060 etc...) running off simple RC constants switching a relay which supplies the servo two different millisecond pulses blah blah technical etc...

    I've had it running with a 18 sec period on already partially depleted AA's for 31 hours now - woohoo!

    hopefully shoot some Baraka style stuff soon - but gotta build first:

    an equatorial mount and glidecam kinda thingy - then a crystal sync motor ... the list goes on

    8 x 20 Panoramic Picture Camera

    Here is a camera that I built a couple of years ago. It took me about a year and a half to build in my spare time. I built the film holder first, then built the camera around the film holder. The hardest part seemed to be making the bellows. I am now designing a 14" x 17" camera. It will have its own built in rear extension. It will be similar to the Korona Pictorial View camera. I have 2 film holders that I purchased on Ebay, and will be building the camera around them.

    These are pictures of my 20x24. I used a Kodak Master 8x10 as an inspiration. It has full movements: front rise/fall, shift, tilt, swing, and rear tilt, swing. The back is geared for focusing. I have since put on the knobs for focusing. The bellows extend to 60 inches. The back is still in progress, but is being made around Jim Chinn's holders. I machined the front panel to accept Kodak Master lensboards so I don't have to switch any lenses. The entire camera, with exception of this panel, is aluminum. The total weight is just under 40 lbs. The pictures show it on a Ries model A tripod.
