I have finally decided to get off my booty and build a camera. Nothing fancy, just a simple monorail 4X5, like lots of others. I made a bellows, thinking that looked like the hardest part. I have good woodworking skills, a full shop, lots of various hardwoods.
Anyway, a few questions.
Question 1- On some of the simpler designs I see, the front rise/fall and tilt are all done with one control. While this looks real simple, it also looks like it could be a pain in use. Should I seperate the rise/fall and tilt control? Is it worth the extra bulk?
Question 2- Some of the designs I see do not have rise and fall on the back, just tilt. I haver used a camera with rise and fall at the rear. Is it something I should include or not?
