    Idea's for lens cone

    I'm building a 6x9 camera by using a film back.
    It will likely have a 58 or 65mm lens on it.

    Any ideas what I can use for a lens cone?

    I was thinking a rectangular lens hood mounted in reverse may work, if it is the right size.

    Brainstormers welcome

    Well, you don't really need a cone, you could just use bellows. I used a 6x9 to 4x5 adapter back with bellows to build my ultrawide shift gizmo. Currently I have a 55mm lens mounted on it. In the photo it's a 65mm.



    If you don't have bellows then I guess you'll focus helicoidally.

    Black abs pipe and a abs end cap. All from your hardware store. Adjust the position of the pipe inside the cap where you want it for focal length before you glue it up.
