    DIY View Camera Website

    I just want to post this link:http://www.raymentkirbycameras.co.uk/index.htm

    Click on 'Workshop' for six detailed and well illustrated and documented sections on building a 5x4 in. view camera.

    I have just discovered it and I found the information to be very useful. I wish I had found it before I built my camera rather than after. - I feel a new one being planned right now!

    I'm sure many of you are already aware of this but I thought I would mention it for those who may not have seen it.


    Steve.

    As poor as I am with tools, this web site makes me want to design and build a 5x12" camera.

    You could always have the hard machining done for you. There are a couple of places that will do this for pretty reasonable fees. Try The Hardwood Store of North Carolina and see what they might charge for the raw material and rough cutting. http://www.hardwoodstore.com/lumber.html The lumber for my tripod was ready to sand and finish. If they would do the cutting that you need for a reasonable fee, it would be about as good as buying a kit. Tell Hil I sent you if you contact them.

    It's a great format Jim. I recently built a 5x12 & some holders and if you have any questions let me know.

    Nice website, thanks for the link Steve.
