    Hope it works out well this time.

    For those of us who like messing around converting and building things, can you post some pictures of the camera?

    Hi Steve, here's a photo of the finished camera - it just needs a viewfinder which I'm waiting for. I'm off out now with my test film inside, having just recalculated the f stop markings.

    Looks good.

    I was going to do a Nimslo conversion a while ago but instead I did a 6x12 format camera with a 65mm Super Angulon. Link in my signature line.

    I was going to use the 6x12 format Holga pinhole camera as a basis for this but after a while I decided I could build all of it.

    What are you going to use for a viewfinder? I ended up making mine as I couldn't afford to buy one.



    Steve.

    Thanks David. Steve, I've sent off for a Gaoersi viewfinder, the 90mm fixed viewfinder for 6x17 should cover the same area as I need for the Nimslo.

    I've developed the second test film and all the exposures are looking good, so thanks to everyone for their help. Heres a rough scan of one of the frames...
